Open Text eDiscovery Chosen by Marathon

10 August 2009

Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced that Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO) has selected Open Text eDiscovery Early Case Assessment, powered by Recommind, to provide the latest in eDiscovery capabilities.

The eDiscovery solution adds to a company’s broader enterprise content and records management strategy. eDiscovery, with ECM initiatives, is designed to improve business processes, proactively manage important records in accordance with compliance, legal and policy requirements, and gives employees new ways to share business content.

Part of the Open Text ECM Suite, Open Text eDiscovery Early Case Assessment helps organisations identify relevant information in cases, and defensibly manage preservation and collection processes for discovery, regulatory and compliance requests. The XML export capabilities and other functions of Early Case Assessment enables companies like
Marathon to minimise the dependence on third-party processing, while culling irrelevant information before expensive legal review processes begin.

“We are very happy to be working with Marathon,” said Stephen Ludlow, Program Manager for Open Text eDiscovery Solutions. “Marathon is a forward-looking organisation that is combining process and technology to address some of the key cost and risk factors in eDiscovery and records retention.”

The Open Text ECM Suite, the company’s flagship offering, brings together the broad range of content management capabilities organisations need to securely and safely manage all types of enterprise information – documents, vital records, Web content, video, images, email, forms and reports – across many different enterprise systems and applications. Open Text’s ECM Suite offers the cross-enterprise ECM solutions customers need as the strategic importance of ECM grows in large organisations, driven by compliance and the need to cut costs.
