Suncor to deploy IXOS for SAP, Livelink

Software contract targets enterprise collaboration and ‘business critical’ content management.

Suncor Energy Services is augmenting its Open Text information management solution with the addition of the IXOS Suite for SAP. Suncor is also to deploy Livelink to support integrated collaboration and content management activities throughout the enterprise.


Open Text unit IXOS provides Enterprise Content Management solutions which manage ‘business-critical content’ and the flow of information within and beyond the borders of an organization. IXOS features single architecture for high-volume data management, provides lifecycle content management and satisfies regulatory compliance requirements


In addition to existing solutions for SAP data and document archiving, Suncor plans on using Open Text to support the archiving of corporate e-mail, in order to capture and manage this content as items of corporate record.

Suncor will also use Open Text to manage engineering drawings and content for its refinery facilities and integrate data from its SAP system to improve the management of resources and inventory needed to maintain these assets.


Open Text president, John Shackleton said, ‘Our ability to support ad hoc collaboration and unstructured content management alongside structured data is critical to our energy customers. Suncor recognized this challenge and has taken a major step forward to make collaboration easier, as well as to support the management of information and processes critical to its core business.’
