OpenText Business Process Solutions are Enabing Organizations to Transform the Way Work Gets Done

OpenText's (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) Business Process Solutions (BPS) group today announced that OpenText Metastorm has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools research report published by leading industry analyst firm, Gartner, Inc. The Gartner 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools report positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The research report evaluates vendor solutions on how well they support EA teams in everyday activities such as modeling, future-state analysis, road mapping, dashboard analysis and scenario planning that impact these stakeholders. According to the report, "Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus on and invest in their offerings to the point that they lead the market and can affect its overall direction. As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve."

"We believe our position in the Leaders sector of Gartner's most recent Enterprise Architecture Tools Magic Quadrant, as well as the BPMS and BPA Magic Quadrants, underscores our ability to deliver powerful solutions that help businesses transform the way work gets done," said Kamran Kheirolomoom, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Business Process Solutions, OpenText. "OpenText Metastorm was one of the first vendors to leverage the synergies between enterprise architecture, business process analysis and business process management remains committed to innovating and delivering market-leading software designed to help organizations connect strategy with execution to drive meaningful change across all lines of their business."

As part of the Enterprise Architecture Magic Quadrant Tools assessment, Gartner evaluated OpenText's (Metastorm) ProVision solution, a comprehensive software suite for enterprise and business architecture, process discovery and business process analysis. Now a component of the newly formed OpenText Business Process Solutions (BPS) group, ProVision allows organizations to gain a complete and connected view of the inter-relationships between business strategy, business processes and the systems and technology that support them. ProVision enables businesses to better understand, realize, innovate and monitor all aspects of operations to continually improve performance.
