OpenText and Utopia, both partners in the SAP Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions family,  have joined forces to bring a solution to this challenge. By leveraging the ‘document-centric governance’ capabilities of the OpenText xECM application combined with the ‘data-centric governance’ capabilities of SAP MDG for EAM, the OpenText-Utopia solution is able to bridge the gap between document and data governance to achieve true end-to-end auditable asset master data governance.
