Sydney – May 20, 2010 - Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the pre-eminent provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, today announced that it has been awarded a 2010 SAP® Pinnacle Award in the category of Global Software Solutions Partner of the Year.

Pinnacle Awards are granted to leading SAP partners that have excelled in enhancing the customer experience, addressing critical issues such as accelerating co-innovation and improving return on investment. Winners were selected based on over 230 nominations in 27 categories received from partners and SAP employees. Open Text received the award at a special awards ceremony held on the eve of SAPPHIRE® NOW, SAP’s international customer conference being held in Orlando, Florida.
