itelligence today announced it has formed a partnership with Optima ECM Consulting, a specialized consulting firm with in-depth expertise in the implementation of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) using OpenText Solutions for SAP®. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Optima helps customers overcome the common disconnect between structured processes and unstructured information. Together, itelligence and Optima will provide customers with OpenText solutions to increase business process efficiency, eliminate internal resource time loss, minimize risk and reduce cost.

“Optima was the clear choice for itelligence when we looked to collaborate with a leader in the SAP network that had the right EIM experience and expert knowledge — specifically around OpenText,” said Steve Niesman, president and CEO, itelligence North America. “As a Platinum Partner of OpenText, Optima will offer our customers unique abilities to combine and optimize SAP and OpenText solutions to address and improve multiple business objectives.”

OpenText solutions provide EIM software that helps companies of all sizes manage, secure and leverage unstructured business information, whether in the data center or in the cloud. Working across multiple industries, Optima Consulting serves as a true consultant that helps organizations build their roadmap and enterprise strategy. Through itelligence’s strong customer portfolio with global mid-market companies, the partnership allows Optima to expand their services to a new customer base.

“As we look to expand our reach to an SAP customer base, working closely with itelligence is a natural fit,” said Shaney Salomon, founding partner and chief executive officer of Optima ECM Consulting. “itelligence has global reach and deep knowledge of medium-size enterprises, a business audience that we’re looking to grow. This collaboration will allow us to deliver immediate value to our collective customer base to effectively increase our value-add and demonstrate a truly successful partnership.”

To kick off the partnership, itelligence and Optima will host a roundtable session with Zappos at the SAP TechEd event on Oct. 23 in Las Vegas.
