Uni Systems: First-ever Use of Open Text's Secure Social Networking by World Leaders Delivers Enhanced Collaboration for G-20 Summit

Uni Systems, the official Open Text provider in Greece, announced that for the first time in the history of G-20 Summits, policy makers from around the world were able to collaborate over secure social networking software in advance of and during the G-20 Toronto Summit and the collaboration continues. A confidential and secure social networking application was created by Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), Canada's largest software company and the preeminent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, to enhance the sharing of government leaders stance on important world financial issues.Open Text, Canada's largest software company and the preeminent provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, provided secure Web access from anywhere in the world in real time, while delegates were also able to access the application from their BlackBerrys, iPhones and iPads. The application supported multiple languages to enhance the ability of delegates to network productively.Given the heightened focus on security and privacy around the world, G-20 organizers avoided use of consumer grade social media tools which lack enterprise-strength security controls.

At the same time, social media offers a more productive environment for networking and collaboration than email, so a solution that combines the benefits without risk was needed. G-8 and G-20 Summit participants who used the Open Text social networking application report that it required minimal training and provided an intuitive web browser experience tailored to their needs.Open Text's Social Workplace software -- based on Open Text's ECM Suite of products -- was also used to provide a social networking platform for Summit participants including news outlets and businesses, in conjunction with Open Text Everywhere mobile software which enabled application downloads to Summit participants' Blackberrys, iPhones and iPads. Participants were able to connect with expert sources including hundreds of librarians and other content matter experts on-call to provide prompt answers to questions. Open Text also used its Digital Experience Management software and its Content Server software to create a virtual environment to share high-tech displays from the Experience Canada Marketing Pavilion -- housing the International Media Center -- with the rest of the world over the Internet. The Digital Experience Management software digitizes and virtualizes images to be portrayed in a 3D format.

Uni Systems, the only official provider and representative of Open Text solutions in Greece, is the sole systems integrator that has implemented end-to-end enterprise content management projects, using Open Text's ECM suite both for Private and Public Sector.
