New Report & Output Management offerings provide Content Server, eDOCS and
SharePoint® users with secure access to mainframe content

WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX:
OTC), a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software,
today announced the availability of OpenText Report & Output Management
solutions for mainframes. The new Report & Output Management interfaces extend
the EIM value proposition to mainframe-generated content by making it
available to users of OpenText Content Server, OpenText eDOCS, and Microsoft

The new interfaces allow customers to capture and store information in
mainframe formats and present it to users within their ECM environment in a
logical, personalized, and secure manner. The solution extends the content
sources and data types available to Content Server, eDOCS and SharePoint and
gives users a single user experience when searching or viewing mixed content.

"Mainframe systems continue to generate a significant amount of
semi-structured output such as reports, and the volumes and formats that are
involved can make using that content difficult," said Jason Likins, Vice
President of Report & Output at OpenText. "Our solution enables companies to
leverage their existing mainframe content for business applications outside
the mainframe system."

Mainframe-enabled repositories provide consolidated access to all enterprise
content and help reduce IT backlog associated with custom report generation.
In addition, users can now leverage legacy content for business applications
such as electronic statements, bill presentment, and customer service. The
ability to manage mainframe-originated content in a content repository also
extends enterprise-wide information governance strategies to mainframe
applications. With safe and secure information transmission that adheres to
best practices and strict governance policies, users can control the
retention, accessibility and auditability of mainframe content managed in a
compliant repository.

These new software products are components of the OpenText Report & Output
Management suite, which captures and stores critical information from packaged
ERP applications such as SAP®, Oracle® E-Business Suite, and PeopleSoft® - as
well as from custom, mainframe and legacy applications. By exposing mainframe
reports within the Content Server, eDOCS and SharePoint environments, report
content can now be shared across the entire organization in a secure manner,
without the need to provide a mainframe terminal access to all users. As a
result, OpenText's mainframe-enabled solutions allow customers to manage their
report information throughout its lifecycle, improving business productivity
while controlling costs and mitigating risks.

OpenText Report & Output Management is now available world-wide through all
OpenText direct and partner channels.
