SAP ECM Partner Open Text Adds Mobility

Did anyone else miss this recent press release from SAP ECM (enterprise content management) partner Open Text?  They are investing in mobility, even though they are a company primarily focused on ECM.  I tried my very best to meet up with Patrick Barnert at Open Text but we kept missing each other at SAPPHIRENOW 2011.

Here are some of their current mobility solutions:
Open Text focuses on on ECM.  Content is needed on mobile devices.  They also have document management systems.  Documents need to be accessed by mobile devices.  They are the developers of the SAP Vendor Invoice Management solution.  This is basically a transactional content management system.  A solution for monitoring and tracking the progress of a transaction or document.  It works with the SAP workflow and workflows need approvals, alerts and notifications.

You can see from the above information that mobility and mobile solutions will impact just about every aspect of the enterprise and enterprise solutions.
