Welcoming the announcement, Minister Murphy said: “I am truly delighted to be here today for OpenText’s announcement. Not only does the expansion of OpenText’s  Global Customer Support Centre create more jobs, it is an endorsement of Cork’s attractiveness for investment by one of the world’s leading technology companies. Partnerships between industry, the Government and IDA Ireland, such as is the case with OpenText, demonstrate that these relationships deliver significant long-term benefits for areas like Cork, the economy, the companies themselves and their customers.”

Cork met all of our requirements for expanding our business in the region: a strong talent pool, a growing technology ecosystem and supportive public partnership. OpenText is committed to being a trusted partner to our customers, and having a local support centre in Cork will bring significant benefits to our European customers as they embrace a Digital-First World.”
