OpenText Unveils New Partner Network

OpenText, a Top 250 MSSP, has announced a new unified OpenText Partner Network program to provide its partners with "best-in-class solutions to deliver exceptional value to enterprise customers," according to the company.

The business unveiled the program in advance of the OpenText World 2023 information management conference, October 11-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

What the OpenText Partner Network Offers

The OpenText Partner Network combines the partner ecosystems of OpenText and digital transformation and enterprise software company MicroFocus, which OpenText acquired in January 2023 for $5.8 billion.

The OpenText Partner Network also provides a standardized program framework with consistent processes and benefits for enterprise partners, the company said.

Meanwhile, mid-market partners can use the OpenText Cloud Accelerator Program, which focuses on using OpenText's public cloud offerings to build new business and drive growth, the company noted.

OpenText Partners Can Deliver Custom Solutions

Along with these programs, OpenText is providing the Aviator Thrust offering and SolEx program through the OpenText Partner Network.

Aviator Thrust lets partners use OpenText's Cloud API services to build custom and industry-specific solutions for customers, the company indicated.

With SolEx, partners can extend the capabilities of OpenText products and deliver joint solutions that meet specific market needs, the company stated.

OpenText Bolsters Its Leadership Team

Previously, OpenText in September 2023 appointed Shannon Bell as its executive vice president and chief digital officer. Bell has more than 25 years of experience in global technology, product management, delivery and operations. At OpenText, Bell leads a charter focused on digital and artificial intelligence systems and data platforms for sales, products, customers and operations, the company said.

OpenText provides an information management platform that organizations can use to manage, integrate and protect their data, the company indicated. It has more than 30,000 partners and supports more than 120,000 customers globally.
