One could look at SAP and OpenText and see a collision course about to happen. OpenText, with GXS, is expanding an applications and network business largely built on/off of production and direct materials connectivity, expanding far outside of the world of EDI where it started. And SAP, with the Ariba Network, is building an all-encompassing vision that, at some point, will incorporate a broader set of direct materials collaboration and connectivity capabilities. Put simply: the network, application, and infrastructure vision for both firms are converging.
Yet OpenText and SAP, still appear to be the best of friends. At OpenText’s analyst day, Patricia Nagle (VP Global Strategic Alliance Ecosystem at OpenText) and Tom Roberts (Global Vice President, Third Party Software & Technology Solutions at SAP Ecosystems) took the stage together. Nagle described SAP as the “most strategic partner of OpenText” and noted that OpenText has 14 solutions sold within the SAP ecosystem.
