ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's analysis on the proposed acquisition of Vignette Corp. by enterprise content management (ECM) vendor Open Text Corp. It is stated that after the deal Vignette will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Open Text. The author states that it is not easy to analyse what either company will gain from the deal as both vendors offer ECM platforms. He thinks that the merger has to do more with the current economic climate.
