Alfresco ECM

Alfresco is split into 2 web applications: the Alfresco core engine, and the Share Collaboration web user interface. If the Share UI is not appropriate to the use case, it's really easy to build an other UI on the top of the engine. Alfresco provides by default a lot of API and you can develop more if needed really simply and quickly.

In our scenario, we're using it for DMS, too. The DMS functionalities are suited only for small enterprises because when the number of resources increases it becomes harder to manage overall configuration. Anyway software is quite easy to use from an end-user point of view and it increases collaboration, especially when the team is already suited to use collaborative tools.

Pros

  • The organizations demand a hybrid approach, running the same software applications on-premise and on-cloud with the same architecture. The local which can act as a master, can be synced with the cloud. This allows collaboration between internal and external users with selective privileges and access control.
  • The Workflow architecture is quite robust and scalable platform. The business users can create business processes easily without any technical knowledge.
  • The service integrations comprised in BPM paves the way to develop complex BPM solutions.

Cons

  • ECM and BPM have different licenses and different user interfaces. The users often gets confused about which one to use and it plays a bigger factor in deciding the ECM platform. The workflow engines in Alfresco are redundant, the inbuilt ECM has workflow engine and Alfresco offers activity product as BPM.
  • The UI development is little complicated, the knowledge of UI framework is required. These are not simple java technologies to learn.
  • Documentation of Alfresco really sucks. There is no single place to refer the architecture, development/deployment guides. The information is scattered across multiple websites with different login credentials.

  • There aren't really any areas I have discovered within eXo Platform that have been disappointing. I believe the company has done a wonderful job creating an intuitive, user-friendly product to assist organizations' overall communication and productivity.

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.

Alternatives Considered

- Alfresco provides more capabilities by leveraging open source components. The core architecture itself is JCR compliant which gives easy options for future migrations.- The PDF rendition in Alfresco comes with LibreOffice at no additional cost. - Alfresco support integrations using common industry standards like CMIS, REST, CIFS, FTP, WebDAV, SharePoint Protocol etc.- Workflow development much easier in Alfresco.

We selected this product firstly because it's easy to use for end-users, even if it's not so simple to configure from an administrative point of view. Managing and tracking overall activities is quite easy and it's also possible to have an immediate vision of everything that is done on the platform. Users feel confident and are encouraged to share resources.
