The Power of EIM

by Peter on Thursday, February 14, 2013

As a long-standing OpenText partner, we at EIM International appreciate the recognition of our information management roots as is reflected in the OpenText campaign on the “next generation of enterprise software, Enterprise Information Management (EIM).”

As Mark Barrenechea, the CEO of Open Text recently wrote:

“Over the last 30 years, CIOs have been focused on automating processes and transactions for structured information with ERP. I contend CIOs will spend the next 30 years focused on automating processes and transactions for unstructured information with EIM.

Unstructured information is today’s oil, and being able to capture, preserve, manage, and build information-oriented applications on this information is the next frontier of competitive business.

EIM is the vehicle—the force multiplier—that will help organizations unlock the untapped value of their information to realize competitive advantage.

OpenText views EIM in five major categories:

EIM is a journey—like ERP was a journey. It’s about bringing structured and unstructured information together, it’s about reducing costs and complexity, it’s about making sound business decisions and driving value, and it’s about increasing competitiveness.

I invite you to take this journey with me in this blog series, as well as in my broader CEO White Paper Series. It promises to be an exciting journey!

Welcome to the next generation of enterprise software."
