OpenText Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division, including Documentum

On 9/12/2016, OpenText announced the acquisition of Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD) for $1,62 billion. ECD is the division of EMC that Portford has partnered with for many years and manages the following products:

  • Documentum
  • ApplicationXtender
  • eRoom
  • Captiva
  • InfoArchive

It will be interesting to see over the next few months how OpenText will choose to integrate and market the ECD products as there is some overlap with existing OpenText portfolio. However, the overall “blended” product line will make OpenText a powerful player in the ECM marketplace.

OpenText is dedicated to the ECM, which is another positive as the EMC ECD products now have a more focused company to take the products forward.

We believe that this is an exciting opportunity for ECD products and look forward to seeing the future unfold.
