Mitchell quitting OpenText for DocsCorp

Ben Mitchell, OpenText's professional services sector manager, is leaving the DMS vendor this month and will be joining DocsCorp as VP of Sales EMEA in January. Grahame Wilkinson takes over from him at OpenText.

Comment: Ben is far too modest to say it but, over the last few years, he has played a major role in rallying the OpenText cause in the face of competition from Autonomy iManage. Ben also introduced the world to the sport of Ruffling-Geoff's-Feathers. In his new role he will no doubt build Boening-Baiting into a spectator sport.

Excellent news for Autonomy, Workshare staff will no doubt be resigning en-masse over the holiday season.
Autonomy must be highly relieved given the huge number of customers they have lost to OpenText in recent years. No doubt their shares will now shoot up in price after recent glitches – obviously this particular appointment did not make it into the rumour mill.

Yeah… ever since DocsCorp bought DocuComp from OpenText to upgrade their compare tool… with 10 year old technology…. Workshare have been all a-flutter about our Antipodean friends.
Go Ben Go!!!

Anyone know if Simon Black has left Autonomy iManage – he's rumoured to be joining IBM FileNet in the New Year

Yes he has. It is not clear if anyone will actually notice.
