Open Text Corporation and KPNQwest announced a joint services agreement to offer Application Service Provider (ASP) services for European businesses. The signed joint services agreement (JSA) provides Open Text’s Livelink collaborative software through KPNQwest’s pan-European macro-capacity fibre-optic network and European CyberCentres. KPNQwest has twelve European CyberCentres and is in the process of constructing mega-CyberCentres of over 10,000 square metres close to key business centres in Europe. These CyberCentres are built on KPNQwest’s high-capacity fibre-optic EuroRings network, which delivers the high-speed broadband bandwidth required to run sophisticated business-to-business applications. KPNQwest and Open Text will jointly market and brand the hosted Livelink solution to KPNQwest’s installed customer base of more than 100,000 businesses. This service will also be offered to the Open Text installed customer base in Europe. KPNQwest customers will also have access to use myLivelink, the customizable interface to Livelink which provides a collaborative information portal that can unite its hosted application services. This will give KPNQwest customers a view into multiple information sources including Livelink, and will allow them to personalize the interface to meet their individual requirements. www.kpnqwest.com, www.opentext.com
