OpenText: Powering Innovation from Hyderabad!
OpenText, The Information Company™, enables organizations to gain insight through market leading information management solutions, on-premises or in the cloud. In 1991, OpenText launched as a project out of the University of Waterloo in Canada and has continued to evolve with the shifting digital landscape. Key highlights of OpenText today: 3B revenue, 100K customers, 15K employees, 120 locations, 35 countries, 25-year history, and 300 products.
In 2009, OpenText started its operations in India by setting up R&D center in Hyderabad, with primary focus on Product Development along with other technology operations such as Professional Services and Customer Support. As the company grew from 1B to 3B revenues, the center continued to make strategic contributions and transformed to a world-class Center of Excellence playing a central role with innovations and customer success. In the 10-year period, the center grew to 1500 employees and still actively expanding.
Hyderabad has been a great location for OpenText to setup and grow a large-scale global technology operation. The talent availability with start of the art skills, world class universities, continuous improvement in the infrastructure and the excellent ecosystem are all key factors that continue to make Hyderabad a world-class destination for innovation and product development.
OpenText has been a member of HYSEA from early stages and has benefited from the support system that has been made possible through the organization. Winning the HYSEA award in 2015 for Best Established Development Center was one of the proud highlights in the history of the center.
In December 2019, Mark Barrenechea OpenText Vice Chair, CEO & CTO along with Executive and Senior Leadership Team visited the teams in Hyderabad and joined an exciting and engaging Townhall meeting with the employees. The event was organized at HICC and was a recognition of both past successes and incredible potential for an even brighter future.
