OpenText Cloud Delivers Enterprise Information Management Software and Services
that Accelerate Time to Value for Customers

ENTERPRISE WORLD, ORLANDO, FL – November 14, 2012 – During his opening keynote today at the  company's annual customer conference, Mark J. Barrenechea, President and CEO of OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) unveiled the industry's first cloud designed specifically to address Enterprise Information Management (EIM) requirements. OpenText Cloud aims to provide all OpenText software as cloud based offerings, in addition to the existing on-premises products. Today, OpenText Cloud provides more than 20,000 customers with anytime, anywhere access to OpenText's EIM solution portfolio in the cloud, including more than 20 ready-to-use applications and services.

"The enterprise-grade capabilities and reliability of OpenText Cloud ensure that customers are in control of their information at all times and that they can meet their regulatory compliance mandates and avoiding security breaches."
