Towards the end of last year, I interviewed Hal Marcus, Director of Product Marketing at Recommind, an OpenText company, and asked him to explain the benefits of OpenText’s acquisition of Recommind earlier last year.
Hal Marcus said that the acquisition made enterprise analytics from Recommind available to OpenText clients with very large quantities of enterprise content. Armed with the enterprise analytical tools, clients could have an immediate look at data needed for legal or business decisions, for both unstructured data as well as structured data, without having to tender for a dedicated solution or make any special arrangements.
I also asked Hal Marcus about a survey which had recently been undertaken for Recommind by Ari Kaplan of Ari Kaplan Advisors. Ari Kaplan’s approach is to have personal interviews, in this case with partners at major law firms. The survey is here and there is a blog post here about it by Recommind’s Adam Kuhn.
