CHICAGO, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Open Text(TM) (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in enterprise content management (ECM), announced today the release of Genio(R) 7, Open Text's content and data integration solution used to transform, cleanse and direct unstructured and structured information across the entire spectrum of decision support systems and corporate applications, spanning projects that include data warehouses, data marts, mainframe systems, ERP systems, CRM systems, and content management deployments.

Genio offers a comprehensive solution for organizations to seamlessly integrate their content and data assets between multiple systems and processes. Leveraging the data integration capabilities of Genio, enterprises have gained measurable business benefits such as reduction in costs, increased reactivity to market changes as well as improved quality and usefulness of their business data.

New capabilities in Genio 7 include: Out-of-the-box support for Web Services

Today's global, multi-faceted organizations are continuously faced with the challenge of integrating disparate systems with incompatible interfaces, data structures, and technologies. As agile organizations adopt a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) they realize that there's a significant issue that Web Services do not address: data-level compatibility.

Genio 7 fills this gap by extending its wide range of data integration and transformation functionality to include Web Services capability, thus allowing organizations to make a quantum leap in the benefits they reap out from their transition to SOA. With this new version of Genio, companies can seamlessly incorporate business data exposed via Web Services in their data integration processes. The Web Services support delivered by Genio 7 drastically reduces the level of effort required to integrate SOA-compliant business applications, saving companies the need to undertake costly integration projects. By extending the reach of their data integration processes to Web Services, organizations will improve data lineage and accountability, significantly enhancing the reliability and value of corporate information.

National Language and Unicode Support

In the increasingly global marketplace, companies expanding their reach are faced with the problem of managing international operations to align them with their newly established business processes. These projects offer significant challenges, particularly when attempting to integrate information in different languages.

By offering Full National Language and Unicode Support, Genio 7 removes the complexity of integrating data encoded in different character sets. This new functionality allows Genio customers to treat data equally regardless of its origin, accelerating business systems integration projects and facilitating the distribution and exploitation of data across the entire organization.

Improved Performance and Ease-of-Use

Now available as a native 64-bit application, Genio 7 further extends scalability and performance of the Genio line. In addition, the introduction of advanced wizards, enhanced search capabilities and new design facilities such as dynamic connection attributes will help organizations boost their speed and productivity when creating data integration projects.

"Getting through piles of data and information in an organization is no easy feat. As organizations evolve, they acquire new enterprise applications, operating systems, hardware platforms and databases, creating many islands of information across the enterprise," said Bill Forquer, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Open Text. "Genio 7 will enable easier integration and access to data and content across the globe, resulting in smarter and faster business decisions based on timely and accurate information."

Open Text Content Services, announced at Open Text's recent user conference (http://www.opentext.com/news/pr.html?id=1960), provide foundational Web Services for Enterprise Library Services, Enterprise Process Services, and end user interface experience. With Genio 7, all Open Text customers can extend their ECM strategies to include Web Service based information sources across the enterprise. This announcement represents a significant step forward for organizations that need to develop a holistic information management strategy across structured and unstructured content and require a cost-effective pathway to content integration.
