OpenText Executives to Deliver Keynotes in First Brazil-Canada 3.0 Conference
on Digital Media
WATERLOO, ON, Dec. 3, 2012
Executive Chairman and Senior Vice-President of Engineering Share Insights on
Maximizing Value of Information
WATERLOO, ON, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC),
a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software, today
announced that two of its executives will deliver keynotes at the first-ever
Brazil-Canada 3.0 Conference being staged in Brazil's northeastern city of
João Pessoa today and tomorrow. Tom Jenkins, Executive Chairman and Chief
Strategy Officer for OpenText, will set the stage for the conference,
discussing cooperation between the two countries in digital media, followed by
Muhi Majzoub, Senior Vice-President of Engineering, speaking on 'Disruptive
Technologies and eGovernment'.
"Digital media underpins the global economy and is critical to the success of
countries around the world," said Jenkins, who is also Chair of the Canadian
Digital Media Network (CDMN) Advisory Board. "Brazil is assessing
opportunities and challenges to digital media implementation and availability
within its boundaries and beyond, in collaboration with Canada."
During his 'Disruptive Technologies and eGovernment' presentation, Majzoub
will discuss how governments can extract value from unstructured data located
behind organizations' firewalls - documents, emails, audio, video and more -
that comprise the 'hidden web' of available information. Managed securely and
effectively, governments have the opportunity to drive results and reduce
costs to maximize the value of digital media. Majzoub has an extensive
background in managing product development and leveraging both cloud-based and
on-premises solutions for Enterprise Information Management.
"There is a wealth of information lying dormant in unstructured content, and
unleashing its power is the true democratization of information that enables
more people to participate in the digital economy and the democratic process,"
Majzoub said. "OpenText has a wealth of experience in helping companies and
government organizations put content to work."
The Brazil conference was inspired by the CDMN Canada 3.0 digital media forum
which Brazilian representatives attended last spring in Stratford, Ontario.
Jenkins has been a leading proponent of the CDMN Canada 3.0 digital media
conference since its inception in 2009.
Brazil-Canada 3.0 will bring together representatives of government, academia
and the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector to discuss the
challenges and opportunities of the digital economy in Brazil. Collaboration
between the two countries was undertaken as part of joint initiatives defined
by the bilateral Science, Technology and Innovation Agreement signed by
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff
