Genuine question

"OpenText hopes to sell its existing products into those customers, putting it in new markets."

I'm not a customer of Documentum or Opentext, just a nerd reading a story here on El Reg. So my question is: is OpenText really paying $1.6 billion just so they have new fields of potential customers to harass? Are they likely to let Documentum's product(s) wither on the vine? Or is this a semi-fire-sale like when Novell sold it's good stuff to Attachmate a few years ago?
