Open Text™ Corporation said it will be working with SAP customers to demonstrate how to unlock the ECM potential of their SAP® solutions during the SAPPHIRE® 2008 Orlando conference and the 2008 ASUG Annual Conference. Both events are being held simultaneously this week at the Orange County Convention Center.

Connecting transactional data from SAP solutions with business content is mission-critical. During the event, Open Text experts will be demonstrating solutions that combine the transactional process management functionality of SAP Business Suite applications with comprehensive ECM capabilities from Open Text. Integrating content from multiple sources with transactions in SAP solutions helps organizations accelerate processes, manage content growth and reduce risk.

As a result of its long-standing partnership with SAP since 1992, Open Text delivers ECM extensions that are designed to integrate with and complement SAP solutions, helping organizations reduce risk, increase operational efficiency and drive IT consolidation. Solutions being demonstrated at the Open Text booth include:

•  Document Access, Document and Data Archiving for use with SAP applications

•  Employee Information Management

Open Text customers and content experts will also lead a series of sessions during the event to give attendees hands-on strategies and best-practice examples for optimizing the use of ECM solutions in SAP application environments. These sessions include:

•  ASUG:Transform AP to Focus on Exception Processing, Root Cause Analysis & Prevention, featuring Molex, Monday, May 5, 9:30 a.m.

“In these challenging economic times, customers in both commercial and public-sector environments are looking for ways to do more with less, improve productivity and enhance customer service,” said Patrick Barnert, Vice President, SAP Solutions Group at Open Text. “Our solutions help enterprises bring together all the content related to a particular customer or vendor, including email and Microsoft Office documents, and put it in the context of SAP solutions. This enables accounts payable analysts, for instance, to focus on strategic initiatives rather than tracking down missing documentation.”
