Informative Graphics Becomes Open Text Global Alliance Partner For Content Visualization

Informative Graphics Corp . (IGC) announced that it has become an Open Text Global Alliance Partner in 2005. As part of its partnership, IGC is participating as Open Text's Global Visualization partner in a series of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Leadership Forums underway across North America and Europe throughout 2005.

The partnership extends the companies' efforts to deliver joint solutions that combine IGC's Brava!® for Livelink® software with Open Text's Livelink ECM suite. These solutions allow customers in engineering, construction and other industries to view, markup and securely publish office and engineering documents directly from a Livelink Web application interface using IGC's Brava for Livelink with Visual RightsT.

Open Text's Global Alliance Partner program focuses on qualified solution, technology and services partners, including the major consulting firms, systems integrators, technology providers and a large base of independent software vendors. Open Text works with its partners to develop technologies, repeatable service offerings and turnkey solutions that enhance the ways customers leverage Open Text products.

"Informative Graphics has distinguished itself as a forward-looking and proactive force in the area of enterprise content visualization, collaboration and document-level security-all key ECM components," said Joseph McLaughlin, senior vice president of global partners at Open Text. "IGC also provides extraordinary customer support, which was critical in deciding to work with the company as a Global Alliance Partner in 2005."

"Our selection as an Open Text Global Alliance Partner further substantiates Brava's position as an important enterprise-class product, and exhibits our commitment to best practices for enterprise content management," said Ron Loback, executive vice president of sales for IGC. "We're very excited about the value and opportunities this partnership will generate for both our companies and our customers."

ECM Leadership Forums

IGC has also agreed to be a sponsor of Open Text's ECM Leadership Forums, a series of events underway this year where attendees learn how to gain a competitive edge with ECM software. The sessions highlight best practices in ECM, which deliver greater efficiencies, improved integration, stronger customer relationships and improved processes for regulatory compliance. Arranged as half-day seminars, the events feature ECM business solutions, customer success stories and insights from ECM experts. For more information on the ECM Leadership Forums, go to: .
