"As a Platinum sponsor of the Canada 3.0 2011 forum and major proponent of digital media progress in Canada, OpenText is pleased to provide a social collaboration tool that will make connecting attendees, presenters and other subject matter experts easier and more efficient," said Eugene Roman, Chief Technology Officer at OpenText.
OpenText’s Social Workplace solution opentext.com/otsw will be accessible from mobile devices on-site, linking more than 3,000 past and new attendees and enabling them to share ideas and converse with presenters from the conference. Participants can access the OpenText application from their BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPads at http://talk.canada30.com/login.
The social collaboration software will ensure that attendees have at their fingertips everything they need to get the most out of the Canada 3.0 forum, including access to the agenda, room locations, subjects and speakers in the eight sector tracks, and more. Most importantly, the secure social media platform will enable participants to not only collaborate onsite, but to stay connected once the digital media forum concludes.
"Given the issues of security and privacy related to consumer-grade social networking tools, OpenText developed a platform with enterprise-strength security controls," said Roman. "Our Social Workplace software offers better ways for people to connect and share information so they can be more effective and productive."
Roman will be leading the Public Sector stream, sponsored by OpenText, at Canada 3.0 and will be compiling outcomes to present at the conclusion of the forum. OpenText will also have a major presence in the Interactive Showcase area of the forum showcasing the latest ECM solutions. Tom Jenkins, OpenText Executive Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer, who is also Chair of the Advisory Board for the Canadian Digital Media Network, will be among those officially welcoming attendees to the forum.
Canada 3.0 is Canada’s premier digital media event organized annually by the Canadian Digital Media Network, and brings together industry, government, public sector and academic communities of interest with the common goal of advancing Canada’s competitiveness in digital media. The forum focuses on a goal called the Moonshot by which anyone in Canada can do anything online by 2017, Canada’s 150th birthday. [April 26, 2011]
