OpenText Extended ECM Platform
Integrate content services with lead applications to bridge content silos, expedite information flows and expand governance.
What is content services integration?
Content services integration supports and expands the traditional strengths of ECM by connecting a content management platform with the standalone applications and systems at the heart of processes.
The best content services offer workers access to information from lead business systems, such as SAP®, Microsoft® Office 365, Salesforce®, SuccessFactors® and more. Content can be surfaced in the application in which users are working, making it easily available to the people and processes that need it most. Centrally defined governance rules are applied automatically throughout the lifecycle of information as it flows through business processes.
Extended ECM Platform overview
With OpenText™ Extended ECM Platform, content is transparently integrated with other leading applications such as SAP S/4HANA®, SAP® SuccessFactors®, Salesforce®, Microsoft® Office 365® or any other process-driving software. With ECM integrations, the content services platform bridges content silos and intelligently automates business processes to allow information to flow effortlessly across applications. Extended ECM Platform leverages an organization’s investment in its enterprise content services software and other applications, while improving transparency and insight to improve decision making, automate business processes and expand the reach of governance policies.
