London, June 3 2013: OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global market leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), and Bluefin Solutions, a global management consultancy, today announced a strategic, worldwide partnership to eliminate big data silos in private and public sector organisations. Under the terms of the partnership, Bluefin Solutions will become one of OpenText UK's strategic business and technical delivery partners for fully integrated SAP and OpenText solutions.
As a result of this collaboration, CIOs will have access to a unified enterprise information management strategy for their SAP investments that effectively combines structured, semi-structured and unstructured data from across their organisation.
"Advances in technology have made the dream of unifying multi-structured data sources a reality today," said Andrew Gunn, Information Management Lead at Bluefin Solutions. "Bluefin Solutions is excited to be chosen as a one-stop shop for integrating SAP and OpenText solutions that enable customers to better manage their enterprise information."
Organisations that are successfully integrating big data into their enterprise information management strategies are innovating faster than industry peers. These leaders are able to respond faster to business opportunities by quickly moving into adjacent markets, designing differentiating products and mitigating supply chain risks.
Mike Pryke Smith, Director of UK Channel and Alliances, OpenText, adds, "Bluefin Solutions' consultative approach and expertise around SAP directly compliments our EIM solutions platform, which makes it an idea partner to deliver our offers to a wider market. Together we can maximize the EIM values and provide new ways to help our customers better manage their structured and unstructured information."
