In 2013 OpenText acquired BPM market leader Cordys, resulting in the most comprehensive set of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and Business Process Management (BPM) software from a single vendor.
"The acquisition of Cordys will enable OpenText to offer the strongest process and case management platform in the business. It means that we are now able to offer the broadest set of BPM technologies, including a 100% native cloud-based BPM platform and PaaS solution, cloud orchestration, integration ESB, rules engine, business activity monitoring, social and mobile interfaces, and an application development environment all from a single vendor and single platform."

Powerful Process Automation Roadmap
The Cordys acquisition has extended OpenText's BPM and case management offerings to meet the needs of enterprise companies.
Highlights of the broader process automation portfolio include:
- The Cordys platform is part of the Processs Suite Platform and complements OpenText’s existing BPM offerings
- Existing BPM products will continue to be strategic offerings for on-premises solutions deployment, and will continue to receive product enhancements, full maintenance and support services, and professional services support in perpetuity
- OpenText is planning to offer a unified user interface across its core on-premises BPM systems so that users can easily and uniformly access work items across multiple process engines
As one of the foundational pillars of the OpenText EIM strategy, OpenText BPM solutions deliver improved business insight, higher process velocity, and greater business impact through strategic planning, automation, and optimization of business processes. Our process and case management solutions empower employees to work more efficiently, improve the orchestration of complex processes, and outperform their business goals with real-time business insight.
