OpenText expands local support for SAP applications hosted on Google Cloud

OpenText has announced expanded local support for its extensions on SAP applications hosted on Google Cloud in the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region.

By leveraging public cloud infrastructure to extend its private cloud, OpenText can offer customers increased flexibility for in-region deployment of information management solutions for the SAP ecosystem.

“OpenText and SAP have a deep and lasting partnership, centred on delivering information management technologies in the cloud to create more intelligent, connected, and secure businesses,” says OpenText EVP and Chief Product Officer, Muhi Majzoub.

“With regional data center support from our strategic partner Google Cloud, OpenText now offers these solutions for SAP applications across Asia. Together, we support our customer's regional compliance needs and data sovereignty requirements under a unified service level commitment from OpenText.”

OpenText says its digital content platform can be used to manage and deliver unstructured content to SAP applications in context and on any device.

The suite supports SAP S/4HANA, as well as SAP, SuccessFactors, and SAP Customer Experience solutions. The company says the expanded availability of these solutions as a managed service responds to accelerating demand in APJ for cloud-delivered information management.

OpenText solution extensions for SAP applications available in APJ include:

  • OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions Cloud Edition streamlines information-driven business processes, delivering content in the context of SAP applications.
  • OpenText Extended ECM for SAP SuccessFactors helps control employee engagement while managing the new digital workforce.
  • OpenText Core Archive for SAP Solutions delivers cloud-based archiving for both SAP and non-SAP content, helping manage and control data volume growth, reduce costs and expand as information governance needs evolve.
  • OpenText Extended ECM for Engineering helps organisations control engineering information, work processes and risk across the lifecycle of projects and operations.

“The integrated OpenText Suite for SAP solutions helped us extract even more value from our SAP implementation,” says Foodstuffs North Island commercial operations process and training manager, Sharn Gamman.

“When we started, there was an expectation that we would have cost savings from efficiency gains and shift staff to more value-added tasks. This is definitely the case. With less manual processing, we have been able to reinvest and focus on working more closely with our vendors.”

OpenText is the largest of a select group of SAP partners delivering SAP Solutions Extensions. The company delivers highly integrated solutions that provide an information advantage to businesses using SAP technology. OpenText and SAP have been partners for more than 25 years, developing solutions for more than 5,000 customers in nearly every vertical and line-of-business.
