OpenText and Google Cloud broaden their collaboration with a new deal. The collaboration should allow the enterprise customers of the two companies to derive more value from their disaggregated data.

OpenText sells software for document management, record management, e-mail management and web content management. The extensive cooperation between OpenText and Google Cloud is based on the close cooperation between the engineering teams of the two companies, Silicon Angle knows.

The intention is to offer containerised versions of several of OpenText’s EIM applications on the Google Cloud Platform. These include Content Server, Extended EDM, Documentum, InfoArchive and Archive Center. In doing so, OpenText uses Anthos to manage the containerized EIM application workloads in a multicold environment.

Disaster Recovery

Initially, OpenText said that it would bring its services to Google Cloud in November. So now the services are already made available on the platform. This makes Google the partner of choice for the enterprise cloud of OpenText. OpenText is in turn the partner of choice for Google’s Enterprise Information Management Services.

With this partnership, OpenText can offer its customers a new disaster recovery option, in which a backup of its applications and data can be made in the Google Cloud. This is useful for customers who have to do this because of compliance.

In addition, the companies offer a single service-level agreement with a single point of contact that guarantees uptime.

G Suite

Finally, OpenText integrates its products with the G Suite. As part of the collaboration, it uses Google’s artificial intelligence and machine learning services to create solutions specifically for specific industries. This concerns, for example, human resource management.

The companies will also focus together on joint sales in industries such as entertainment, financial services, healthcare and media.
