Large commercial bank saves more than $10 million through data archiving and application decommissioning with OpenText InfoArchive

We wanted to make sure it really was a partnership. OpenText understood exactly what our mission was and we understood what they brought to the table. It’s very rare in a project of this size and scope that you can hit all of the requirements, get them all done and come in on time and on budget. I would absolutely recommend the OpenText InfoArchive application decommissioning solution.
