OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), has announced the availability of OpenText Magellan, the company’s new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform. OpenText Magellan is a flexible AI and analytics platform that combines open source machine learning with advanced analysis and the capabilities to acquire, merge, manage and analyse Big Data and Big Content. Unveiled and demonstrated at OpenText Enterprise World 2017, Magellan’s cognitive computing platform offers users machine-assisted decision making, automation, and business optimisation, in an easy to use and affordable package.
OpenText Magellan is a cost-effective solution built on a cohesive, highly scalable infrastructure equipped for handling massive amounts of structured and unstructured data. Powered by OpenText Analytics, and Apache Spark, OpenText Magellan integrates across any EIM architecture to dramatically reduce the time, effort and expertise required to leverage the value of advanced analytics in decision making and task automation.
“Enterprises have created vast data lakes of information over the last decade, and OpenText Magellan helps to organise that information and unlock its value,” said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO and CTO. “As automation advances at incredible rates, and enterprise data grows larger, OpenText Magellan brings the power of analytics, algorithms and statistical models to organisations around the world for advanced decision making and better business insight. With OpenText Magellan, we are moving towards a more open, scalable and affordable future for AI. OpenText is committed to ensuring AI is designed into its offerings from day one.”
“Data is the feedstock of AI, and unstructured data in particular, is where the hidden insights lie; insights into customer intent, employee behaviour, partner’s contractual obligations and litigants’ evidence,” said Nick Patience, Founder & Research VP, 451 Research. “The ability to ingest, analyse and understand vast quantities of data - combining structured with unstructured - is now possible using AI-driven platforms and applications. Companies that understand this will gain advantages over those that don’t and equip themselves for the AI-driven economy.”
The solution is designed for multiple use cases enabling customers to:
- Leverage Machine Learning to unlock the value of EIM data by analysing customers, trading partners, employees, orders, invoices, cases, documents and other data managed in these systems.
- Deliver value from AI faster and cost-effectively by deploying a cohesive platform with pre-integrated components to minimise the effort and expertise required to go live.
- Democratise access to AI by empowering data scientists to create custom algorithms for use by business analysts and operational users.
- Utilise an open-source, Apache Spark-based platform to automatically derive the most current and complete insights from Big Data and EIM Content to achieve optimal outcomes.
- Augment applications automatically with fast, self-service analytics, empowering business users to delve deep into massive amounts of data and derive actionable insight.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.
Cybersecurity Insights - Attack
No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
Cybersecurity Insights - People
Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
