OpenText inks digital deal with Dutch defense ministry

OpenText, a provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions, announced its digital deal with the Defense Pipeline Organization (DPO) of the Netherlands.

The digital contract with the DPO, a part of the Dutch Ministry of Defense, is to digitize its active and archived documents, said OpenText.

DPO, based in The Hague, will utilize OpenText’s Extended Enterprise Content Management for SAP to make documents and archives digitally available. Main activities of DPO include operation, maintenance and coordination of commercial activity for the Central Europe Pipeline System (CEPS) in the Netherlands.

OpenText Extended ECM for SAP supported DPO, which has nearly 600 km of pipeline, three depots, five pump stations and one truck loading station located on Dutch territory, because it provided a central environment for documents, and integrates with the existing SAP technology already deployed.

“One of the main reasons to choose OpenText is the certified interface with SAP,” said Ron Kramer, head of Staff Control at DPO.

OpenText Extended ECM for SAP offered security, as well as enabling the long-term vision that the solution must be internationally deployable and compliant with all international regulations and requirements.

The implementation began in September 2014 and will be completed during the second half of 2015, with all DPO employees working with the OpenText solution.
