Company Profile

NATURE OF BUSINESS: Open Text Corporation develops and sells high performance text retrieval software products. Open Text 5 software is considered to be the market leader in high performance text retrieval technology. Latitude, the award-winning electronic document delivery system, was announced in April 1995. COMPANY BACKGROUND AND HISTORY: Open Text's technology was developed at the University of Waterloo in a $ 6 million collaborative project, originally involving both government sources and the private sector, notably IBM and the Oxford University Press. When in 1990 it became apparent that the developed technology had commercial potential, Open Text Corporation was formed and the technology was acquired. Since that time, Open Text has enhanced and added to this technology which is now in use by more than 2,500 users worldwide. Open Text continues to maintain a close working relationship with the Center for Text Research at the University of Waterloo. In addition, Open Text is a leading participant in the Canadian Strategic Software Consortium, a nine company organization committed to the development of the harmonizing of text and relational database management systems (T/RDBMS).

Products/Services

  • Open Text 5 The Open Text 5 system is an integrated suite of client/server- based text search, retrieval and viewing technologies, consisting of three components: - TextSearch - a high-speed database search engine based on the company's patented PAT™ string search technology, that enables users to rapidly locate, access and display full text, search individual words and phrases located in multiple databases and file formats. Unlike other systems TextSearch does not require that data be converted to a proprietary format. TextSearch has a multi-file/multi-format architecture which means that support is offered for searching both SGML and native file formats such as WordPerfect, MS Word, Interleaf, FrameMaker, Lotus 123, Excel, DBase etc. - TextQuery - a multi-platform, graphical user interface (GUI) that adheres to "progressive disclosure" principles. Beginners can quickly learn the product, while "power users" can enable additional features, expanding and reconfiguring the GUI to reflect the new capabilities. - TextView - a viewing sub-system that automatically detects if data is to be viewed as "tagged text", such as SGML or HTML, or as one of 40 native file formats. Tagged text is displayed using user-defined style sheets, while native files are displayed exactly as they would appear in their original format.

  • Open Text Latitude Open Text Latitude is the company's newest product offering, and enables users to find, view and re-use information stored in documents, no matter how the documents are formatted or distributed across desktops and servers.
