Operitel's software relies on Microsoft's .NET development stack and targets a number of verticals, including financial services firms, government, manufacturing, retail and telcos.

Its flagship product is LearnFlex, a system that "registers, tracks, manages and reports on all aspects of training and professional development in an organization," according to its website. The software also has mobile capabilities.

The deal is just the latest acquisition for OpenText, which purchased mobile application development company weComm and BPM vendor Metastorm earlier this year.
