The team’s back in the office after a sunny week in Orlando for OpenText’s Enterprise World 2014 event. It’s blustery and cold with snow on the ground here, but we’re still basking in the summery glow of the event.
Simplify, Transform and Accelerate in the Digital First World
The theme this year of “simplify, transform and accelerate in the digital first world” seemed especially apt in light of the growing demand for consumer focused solutions that marry ease of use with powerful functionality. To that end OpenText unveiled Core, their enterprise-ready information management solution built from the ground up for the cloud. As Lubor Ptacek, VP of Strategic Marketing succinctly puts it: “It’s sophisticated yet uncomplicated.”
Sophisticated Yet Uncomplicated
That’s a mantra that could equally apply to our Shinydrive solution that promises 100% of your unmanaged content stored on shared drives migrated into Content Server with no user training. It’s wonderfully uncomplicated to the point of being invisible. End users simply access their files as they always have while Shinydrive works in the background to migrate information into Content Server. Users don’t change the way they get work done while IT ensures content is in compliance and discoverable. There were some dropped jaws once they understood the power of what Shinydrive can do and not a few “Where were you eight months ago?!”
There’s nothing like meeting the OpenText community face to face and have them consistently validate our Shinydrive offering. We enjoyed a ton of referral traffic to the booth. Folks would often open with “Our rep/analyst/co-worker/partner told us we needed to come over and see your solution.” It’s equally satisfying being able to help folks from diverse industry backgrounds. We’ve got a full plate and lots of following up in the next couple of weeks. Christmas comes early here at Shinydocs.
