Open Text goes shopping again

Waterloo, Ont.-based Open Text Corp. opened its wallet again on Wednesday to snatch up Corechange Inc., an infrastructure software company based in Boston.

The deal represents Open Text’s third purchase in the last four months. Last November, the company bought Centrinity Inc., known for its messaging and collaboration solution, and last month it added Eloquent Inc. into its fold.
