In today’s information-driven economy, organizations need to be able to move swiftly to take advantage of opportunities and they need to see rapid return on investment from Web applications. Open Text Web Solutions, with its legendary RedDot technology, lets customers manage globally accessible public Web sites in concert with internal Web initiatives from a single comprehensive solution. It ensures a dynamic and engaging user experience by integrating, managing and optimizing content. It furthermore provides seamless access to information across a variety of existing applications and repositories, including SAP, Microsoft SharePoint, as well as all Open Text content repositories, databases, file systems, and Web 2.0 applications. Content can be managed, translated and distributed across dozens of countries and sites globally.
"The need for a comprehensive, easy-to-use, fast-to-deploy Web solutions platform is greater than ever as enterprises depend more and more on the Web to drive marketing, customer and partner communications, and employee collaboration," said Daniel Kraft, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Open Text. "By proving the entire range of requirements in one Web Solutions suite, we are giving enterprises what they need to take full advantage of everything the Web has to offer, and do it with fewer resources both at implementation and over the long term."
Making Web 2.0 Safe
While many Web 2.0 and social media tools such as blogs, wikis or RSS have moved into the enterprise, most deployments have been smaller scale at the departmental or workgroup level. There are several factors at work behind this limited embrace, including newness of the technology, the need to work with numerous different vendors, and risk of exposing confidential corporate information inappropriately.
Open Text Web Solutions provides the foundation for strategic, larger-scale deployment of Web 2.0 solutions. It offers a fully integrated set of capabilities, eliminating the need for point solutions while offering complete Web 2.0 functionality.
As employees experience social sites like Facebook or Wikipedia, they expect a similar experience in the workplace. They want personal, relevant information and open sharing with peers. However, many enterprises are reluctant to make strategic moves to 2.0 technologies due to legal, privacy and compliance concerns. In an industry first, the Open Text Web Solutions can intelligently monitor content posted to internal and external wikis and blogs and automatically notify moderators and site managers of content to adhere to industry and company policies.
Open Text Web Solutions: Tools for Success
Open Text Web Solutions, whether for the Web, intranets or extranets, includes a set of services designed to ensure immediate, lasting success. These core capabilities include:
