Content management software company OpenText is set to explore advances in AI-enabled devops at its annual OpenText World conference.
The 11-12 October event in Las Vegas will discuss OpenText approaches for application modernisation, AI/ML and devops as key for organisations with complex IT environments.
Christina Wood, a marketer at OpenText, wrote that application modernisation is often needed to “unlock the true value within these strategic core business systems” by controlling costs, managing risks, and speeding up innovation.
“The modernisation journey can include migrating to the cloud, hybrid implementation, or modernising legacy applications in place,” she wrote.
For most organisations, the destination is cloud, while mainframe and COBOL remain at the heart of getting a business and competitive advantage, Wood pointed out.
Having announced a new OpenText AI strategy, the vendor is also looking to enable organisations to run AI and large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT or Bard on top of private, secured data, giving them more choice of model for specific jobs.
“Ice is our AI-generated Jedi yeti that can guide you through complex data terrain to better leverage AI. Let Ice help you navigate what’s best for your business so you can find the right AI model for the job,” wrote OpenText executive vice president and chief marketing officer Sandy Ono in a blog post.
“As this new era is ushered in at organisations around the world, business and IT leaders are focused on how to best integrate AI into their plans.”
OpenText believes future innovation will often be AI and information management driven.
For instance, LLMs – also known as ‘generative AI’ – are expected to assist with creating new revenue streams, product development and time to market, she added, with OpenText planning related features and capabilities for its cloud solutions and information management software.
OpenText this month announced new intelligent capture capabilities harnessing AI/ML for its content cloud to improve the ability to extract content and route information to the right users and systems in customer organisations as well as new functionality for its low-code development platform.
An array of productivity and content tools from OpenText include the likes of Gupta, for database application development that aims for more efficient coding and implementation and OpenText Brava! Enterprise file viewing software for document workflow and collaboration, including in 3D and computer-assisted design (CAD).
