"Project Red Oxygen is the next generation of enterprise software and a powerful testimony to our commitment to lead the EIM marketplace," said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. "Every business needs an information management strategy to capitalize on their unstructured data, and Project Red Oxygen will give CIOs the power to discover, manage and leverage that information to drive growth and innovation across their organization."
New Product Suites Accelerate Innovation, Growth and Competitive Advantage
Project Red Oxygen consists of five new comprehensive and integrated product suites, designed to accelerate competitive advantage and provide a convenient way to buy and deploy enterprise information management solutions. Driven by customer feedback, Project Red Oxygen delivers a unified developer platform, an engaging and consistent user experience, deep integration across suites, and major new functional enhancements to enable CIOs to partner with lines of business to drive innovation and growth.
The new Project Red Oxygen product suites include:
Introducing the AppWorks Developer Platform
Foundational to all suites is AppWorks, an entirely new unified development platform that provides a secure gateway for developers to create, deploy and manage applications that use OpenText services from any platform. AppWorks is a common API across the five EIM product suites and a developer platform that accelerates 'time to solution', binding all of OpenText's EIM product suites together to rapidly integrate capabilities amongst and between them.
"The developer network is one of our strongest assets and the introduction of AppWorks will give developers the power to build multiple applications that help businesses more effectively harness their data," said Muhi Majzoub, senior vice president, engineering, OpenText. "Customers, partners and third parties will be able to build applications that meet their exact needs to better compete in today's new information economy."
AppWorks takes cost, risk and complexity out of application development by giving developers access to rich EIM capabilities through simple API calls. The AppWorks Gateway also delivers a write-once for applications that work on desktop, browser, and mobile devices, addressing the needs of OpenText customers and partners by helping them to minimize the cost of building applications that run on any screen, and allowing them to develop and deploy new applications on their existing investments.
