OpenText Enterprise Content Management enables seamless integration of content with collaboration tools and social media platforms
WATERLOO, ON, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText TM (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global market leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced that The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) will implement OpenText Enterprise Content Management (ECM). OpenText's ECM solution, one of five foundational pillars of OpenText EIM, enables organizations to manage information throughout its lifecycle, improve business productivity, and control the costs and risk associated with the growing volume and velocity of content being produced and published in the enterprise. With OpenText's ECM solution, Hong Kong Polytechnic intends to gain better control over its content, ensure greater data integrity, and address its growing data needs.
Hong Kong Polytechnic University is the largest government-funded tertiary institution in Hong Kong with more than 30,000 students, and nearly 3,500 teaching and non-teaching staff. It offers over 230 programs on campus. The growing student population, number of employees and courses offered had increased at PolyU over the years and led to a huge growth in data generated and used. To better manage and leverage this information, PolyU's individual units were implementing independent and isolated solutions. The University's reliance on disparate document management systems to store and manage its information was getting harder to manage.
"With a growing number of document management system libraries from different vendors used across campus, there was a need to aggregate the islands of information that could not be shared or used," said Gerrit W Bahlman, Director of Information Technology at PolyU. "The OpenText implementation will reduce IT support time and costs and greatly improve collaboration between the teaching and administrative staff, enhancing their pursuit of best practice sharing."
