Alfresco Content Services

If you have regulatory or business needs that require saving email into Alfresco and you are using Outlook for Mac, you may need to perform significant customization to make it work. Additionally, if you will have users that will be members to a large numbers of sites over time, you need to thoroughly explore what functionality will be degraded or lost and how to mitigate the impact. Other than these two scenarios, I cannot think of any scenarios where Alfresco would not be well suited to an organization's needs.

Pros

Alfresco Content Services

  • Integration with other applications, namely Drupal and Moodle, was simple and works beautifully.
  • The UI is intuitive, clean, and friendly. Users have required little training for basic functionality.
  • We have been pleased with the overall system performance of Alfresco Enterprise Content Management.

Google Drive

  • Allows team members to access, add or edit files in real-time.
  • Allows me to share spreadsheets and files with non-team members.
  • It is very easy to use and I love that it integrates directly to the computer so I don't have to upload and download files constantly.
Mandy Cramer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Alfresco Content Services

  • Alfresco Process Services and Alfresco Application Development Framework integration makes for best functionality/application of ECM.
  • Use case alignment - Marketing content and documentation of specific business requirements and user stories being available as reference material/documentation.
  • Integration with multiple silos for content.

  • The biggest problem that comes up is when sharing a file and you accidentally don't give the person access. It's easy to forget. I shared something yesterday and then closed my computer, not realizing I never gave anyone permission to view it. Maybe the UX could bring it to your attention rather than you have to search it out.
  • Honestly, the rest is great. No notes.

As per the current market and the line of products that are available for content and document management system, Alfresco is a very good option compared to other systems in terms of features and cost. Plus the community support is great. Also since the product is open source, it can be extended or understood in a better way.

For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

Alfresco Content Services' UI has never been its strength from the beginning. Therefore, rating it from a usability standpoint, I will not rank it high. However, Alfresco Content Services can easily be integrated with any application and leveraged as a backend CMS or DM system. With the new Angular-based UI approach, it's very much possible to create custom UI on top of it as required.

Google Drive is very easy to use, and most of the time, does not require a subscription (anyone with a Google account can use it). All of the documents are similar to ones that most people have worked with before (i.e. Sheets is similar to Excel) and the interface is pretty intuitive. Changes are saved immediately, so there's not too much of a learning curve and the version history feature allows you to go back if you've made a mistake (i.e. accidentally deleting something).

Google Drive syncs in backgroud and does not affect pc performance. Google drive on the web has no slow downs. I can work on my legacy Windows 10/i5 2520M / 8GB / 480Gb SSD laptop.
Google Sheets is excel level and gives complete spreadsheet features which passes excel in some areas.

I am not big fan of Alfresco Content Services' support; it works on its own speed and sometimes it becomes challenging to achieve business needs. However, I appreciate regular delivery of security patches and updates

It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

Process was relatively smooth and overall, downtime minimal. MSI was very responsive to our needs and made the transition easier than it otherwise might have been.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Alfresco Content Services

All software has some pros and some cons. Alfresco has some good pluses, and suits our environment very well. It fit perfectly in the place that we are working on. That is why we decided to go with this software. Overall, the kind of content management that needs to be done in an organization is what would determine which software to use.

The main aspect that led us to stay with Google Drive compared to the other software is its storage capacity that is undoubtedly superior. In the same way, to be able to work from the Gmail account is another point in favor because we consider this mail service as the most complete at present.

Return on Investment

Alfresco Content Services

  • Instant document lookup - No paper files to mail which saves in all areas of postage, truck delivery, physical storage warehouse space, printing, etc
  • No longer losing important documents - Previously with paper files things would go missing and those could be costly reports/assessments.
  • Ability to secure documents and provide access to only those who should be allowed to see that content

Google Drive

  • For Google Drive for corporate use, it is easy to scale up or down based on number of users joining or leaving our organisation.
  • For Google Drive for personal use, it is always good to have it free; however it does not reward long term users with additional storage space like Microsoft does.
  • Cost of using it for corporate use is not too expensive compared to buying on-site file servers and storage servers.
  • Easy for our staff to set up and use.
