OpenText Acquires Resonate Knowledge Technologies

Provides industry leading ECM user experience, content visualization, reporting and industry application development platform

WATERLOO, ON, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced it has acquired Resonate Knowledge Technologies (Resonate KT), a leading provider of software that enables organizations to visualize unstructured data, create new user experiences for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and xECM for SAP, as well as build industry based applications that maximize unstructured data residing within Content Server, a key component of the OpenText ECM suite.

OpenText ECM customers can gain a simple, flexible user experience, a powerful reporting engine, and a development platform that provides a competitive advantage over other ECM vendors and platform technologies. Resonate KT products are used by more than 500 OpenText customers in 20 countries. Key products from Resonate KT include WebReports, WebReports Extensions for Workflow, ActiveView, and ActiveView Mobile. Resonate KT products will remain part of the rich suite of extensions available to enhance ECM and xECM for SAP.

Resonate KT's software makes ECM easy by providing a superior out of the box OpenText ECM user experience and a developer platform for customers to build their own applications. Customers using ECM solutions from OpenText will benefit from reduced time and complexity of their deployments, accelerated user adoption, and powerful reporting and content visualization on desktop, web and mobile devices.

"OpenText customers will be able to easily visualize their information, build applications, extract information and drive faster adoption of EIM through the use of Resonate KT software," said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. "I was impressed with Resonate KT's software the first time I saw it. Resonate KT's products are deeply integrated into OpenText Content Server, which will help customers gain great value. We welcome Resonate KT's staff and customers to OpenText."

"While organizations rely on their data and business content to make the right decisions in a timely manner, access is often difficult. As a long-standing partner of OpenText, we are passionate about providing global clients the ability to bring together their data and business content, within the context of their business processes," said Greg Petti, senior director of product technology, Resonate Knowledge Technologies. "By becoming an integral part of OpenText, we will offer a wider scope of customers the ability to bring together structured data, documents, forms, emails, workflows within contextual, real time views and dashboards that are simply not available elsewhere. We are thrilled by becoming a part of the world's leading provider of EIM solutions."
