Open Text Corporation, a provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM), announced the release of Version 2.0 of its Open Text Employee Information Management (EIM) solution. The Open Text EIM 2.0 solution manages the lifecycle of employee information and helps meet legal data protection guidelines and provisions concerning document storage and deletion. With Open Text EIM 2.0, users can access SAP ERP HCM data directly from the Open Text solution. Relevant employee folders in EIM can be directly called up from SAP ERP HCM. All documents in a personnel folder are made available via a transparent and flexible folder structure with categories and sub-categories. Using thumbnail images of documents, users can find desired documents. EIM 2.0 includes scanning software to support the conversion of paper to electronic files that can be uploaded to the system.
Open Text has also introduced the Connectivity Secure Server, a scalable solution for secure network access from Hummingbird, the Open Text Connectivity Solutions Group.
