EY announces a strategic alliance with OpenText, a global leader in enterprise information management (EIM). This will expand EY’s digital and analytical services and address information management issues more effectively in a connected workspace, particularly for EY clients leveraging SAP® software.

Kimberly Connors, Partner, Ernst & Young LLP and Canadian National IT Advisory Leader says:
“The alliance with OpenText will enable EY to address key customer issues around managing content, while simultaneously offering them an understanding of patterns of behavior and expected outcomes. Our new alliance allows us to look at content problems through a transformational lens, helping clients predict future outcomes and improve business performance.”

The alliance was formed to help clients handle the petabytes of the structured and unstructured data generated by companies, allowing them to create exceptional customer experiences and improve strategic decision-making. In addition, the agreement will allow EY to extend its core implementation services to provide seamless, well-integrated OpenText implementation services to clients using SAP solutions.

Adam Howatson, Chief Marketing Officer, OpenText, says:
“We are excited to welcome EY to the OpenText Global Partner Program. As a strategic partner across a number of key areas of OpenText’s business, EY’s combination of business and technical capabilities will help our joint customers benefit from the opportunities available in today’s digital world.”

Steve Watson, EY Global Performance Improvement Leader, Advisory says:
“Our clients are challenged by the vast amount of data generated by the very processes that are essential to running their businesses – from checking customers’ credit to auditing. Now, through our alliance with OpenText, our clients whose businesses generate masses of data, particularly through SAP solutions across organizations and geographies, will be able to better use the content and data to help create exceptional customer experiences and improve strategic decision-making.”
