<p>Sydney, 29 September 2009 - Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced that it has received the highest rating possible, a "Strong Positive," in leading analyst firm Gartner's 2009 "MarketScope* for Records Management," published on Sept. 10, 2009 and authored by Kenneth Chin.</p>
<p>According to Gartner's report, "Demand for records management solutions continues to grow, as the technology is imperative if an organisation is to effectively implement an enterprise-wide records management program." According to Gartner, by 2013, 50 percent of all Global 2000 companies will implement enterprise-wide records management solutions.</p>
<p>The report also noted, "As emerging consumer and social software tools like wikis, blogs and Twitter are adopted at an enterprise level, this additional content may also need to be managed as records."</p>

"Our focus has been to give customers the power to define consistent records management rules for content across a range of enterprise systems. That's ultimately what they need to implement a consistent records and compliance strategy for the entire organisation."</p>
