Alfresco ECM

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.

Jahia

I believe that Jahia is best suited for companies where updating content online is not restricted to one or just a few people. If you own a small company/website, that does not need to change content, pages or promotions frequently then maybe Jahia will not be very useful for you.

Jahia

  • Contextual authoring experience that allows authors to easily visualize the content changes they are making.
  • An extensible platform that can be customized to meet complex business problems. Creating a holistic digital experience so often involves integration with many sources of information and/or systems. Jahia's platform allows for many solutions, from customization to native platform features, for integrating with the different external systems that are required.
  • Jahia's pricing is competitive and Jahia provides many features found in solutions that cost much more
  • Jahia's support team is above average compared to other vendor support teams I have worked with.

Jahia

  • Jahia documentation is lacking in some areas.
  • Jahia cloud offerings are not as mature as some other platforms in this space.

I would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

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.

Jahia

Jahia is flexible and customizable so it allows its users to develop different of pages. However, such work requires additional resources and expertise of third party professionals. Other products I used have been more self sufficient by providing a high range of tools, tutorials, forums and support. In Jahia it seems not to be very easy to move between this or that look or layout

Return on Investment

Alfresco ECM

  • At Sony Pictures, Alfresco had a direct impact on efficiency. Since the documents upload was faster and more robust, the users across the departments were able to access the documents via their software applications very quickly and they no longer had to wait.
  • The cost of licensing and product support for content management was reduced.
  • The number of support calls for IT staff got reduced by huge margin.
