Scalability is great. We can extend areas horizontally and vertically.

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is for software development. It also offers capture. So far, we have been satisfied with the product.

Pros and Cons

  • "An SAP user can store documents directly into OpenText without a connector."
  • "Scalability is great. We can extend areas horizontally and vertically."
  • "We are looking for new, advanced UI features. Currently, the UI does not look great."

What other advice do I have?

OpenText is a very strong offering from the engineering management side, as well with its SAP integration. Its weak point is the UI's look and feel.

Provides integration of a document management platform with many applications, though initial stability issues can occur

Pros and Cons

  • "The integration of a document management platform with many other applications, e.g. SAP, SuccessFactors, Salesforce, SharePoint, etc."
  • "Initially there can be stability issues due to unknown factors such as usage of the system, quantity of documents ingested, load during peak hours."

What other advice do I have?

Get in touch with experts, either directly from the vendor or consult with an external party that has deep expertise in implementing a similar solution.

​All the information is now stored in a central repository that is accessible to everyone.​

Pros and Cons

  • "Simplicity to roll out, features available, customization options."
  • "User interface needs improvement (at least in the version we are using, desktop client)."

What other advice do I have?

To keep up to date with the latest versions of the products because OpenText continues to invest money on new features.
