OpenText unites SharePoint and SAP in new solution

OpenText unites SharePoint and SAP in new solution 

The solution is officially called the OpenText Microsoft SharePoint Services (SPS) for Extended ECM for SAP Solutions, and OpenText says it will deliver organizations more effective governance and compliance capabilities.

“It helps customers reduce the number of places where a person has to act to accomplish a goal or task they have,” said Piyush Patel, VP, worldwide partner strategy and marketing, OpenText. “It reduces inefficiency in storage, and reduces the number of mistakes made. It makes customers more compliant.”

The solution provides a full view into systems through a single pane of glass, ensuring that SAP and SharePoint users are able to more effectively govern their content. It enables SAP and SharePoint users to work together on documents without subjecting them to an inefficient, multi-part process. SAP users will be able to see what SharePoint users are doing – and vice versa – in real-time.

“Complementing OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions, the SPS solution from OpenText enables enterprises to unite the worlds of ERP and ECM, helping to reduce the risks and costs of any records mismanagement, increasing information worker productivity, and enhancing a company’s ability to comply with regulations,” said Kevin Cochrane, CMO, OpenText, in a statement.

The solution will be useful in most organizations, says OpenText, because SharePoint is one of the largest repositories on the planet and is in use in so many enterprises. It is also one of the few of its kind.

“There are other connectors that will let you tie one repository into another, but this one, uniquely, combines three-way usage,” said Patel. “It’s the only one that is endorsed by all three vendors, so we have a power of three concept here.”

The solution is currently available globally, in nine languages, and pricing is subject to individual organizations’ needs.
