Platform and Developer Extensions Overview

The OpenText ECM platform is highly extensible through configuration and customization. There are a number of powerful developer tools that allow for easy customization of the platform to meet the specifics needs of each Content Services implementation. Designed to create scalable enterprise solutions, the developer tools enable rapid development and deployment of customizations across your Content Services deployment, enable integrations with OpenText services and enterprise applications, and allow the creation of applications that extend the Content Services platform. Partners and customers leverage these tools to build complete applications, solutions for specific business issues, and customized experiences. Whatever the integration, customization or application, these tools provide simple and secure upgradable developer access points for organizations to enhance and extend their Content Services implementation.

Key features include:

  • Create lead application integrations that manipulate Content Services data in a distributed environment and extend these to bring together structured and unstructured data and processes together
  • Execute LiveReports from custom applications
  • Customize user experiences to provide dashboards, visual and role-based views and specific UI enhancements that maximize ease of use
  • Execute LiveReports from custom applications


Business Needs

Business Needs

Establish consistent, auditable and defensible Information Governance across your business

The volume of Enterprise information held by organisations is growing exponentially, intensified by business applications moving from the desktop to mobile devices and where information, itself, can reside anywhere – on premise or in the cloud. The "boundaries" of business's no longer end at the firewall, making it harder than ever to enforce information management policies and ensure compliance.

Businesses everywhere are realising the value that an Information Governance program can have to manage not just the expotential rise in data volumes, but also the enforcement of new regulations and policies which  are constantly evolving or being introduced to manage the growth Enterprise Information.

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions can help companies deliver a governance programme to deal with corporate information, the consumers and creators of that information, in the context of real business processes. Best practices and solutions that help meet compliance and risk mitigation mandates imposed by law, regulators, or internal quality standards are complemented by a keen focus on developing ways to capitalise on the kinds of productivity and efficiency gains that grow out of an asset-management approach to corporate information. 

A successful Information Governance strategy demands that companies balance the mitigation of legal and business risk, take advantage of information to drive business value, and minimise the costs of managing information.
