Enterprise information management business OpenText is demoing a new information management solution that combines the functions you would expect with the standard enterprise content management system, with some of the features such as mobile awareness and simple user interfaces you expect from consumer collaborative cloud tools like DropBox etc at a price and via a channel that’s accessible to everyone.
As Mark J. Barrenechea, President and CEO of OpenText explains. “Enterprises have different requirements for scale, security, performance, in country data-zones and governance than consumers. With OpenText Core, we are delivering a product leveraging our 20 years of Enterprise Information Management experience that is going to change how the world’s largest companies and governments run.”
The OpenText Core has been built on OpenText’s information management cloud platform and extends this with additional features including;
- HTML 5 file viewer for office documents and media.
- An interface designed to allow drag and drop, full text searching sorting and filtering and version control across any device.
- sharing documents among teams with internal and external permission controls
- social media tools such as the ability to “like” and leave comments on posts.
- dashboard of recent activity to keep track of items and projects.
- Editing files within the Core experience
- admin dashboard for user management, access management and remote wipe.
The solution is currently in private beta but when it’s launched pricing for OpenText will start from $5 per user, per month for 2-50 users with 50GB per user, 2Gb file sizes and 25 versions per file, to Enterprise grade at $30 per user per month, for 5+ users with unlimited storage, 2Gb file sizes and 100 versions per file.
