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 documentation is lacking in some areas.
  • Jahia cloud offerings are not as mature as some other platforms in this space.
  • Jahia's native components and community provided plug-in ecosystem is limited. But thankfully, customization is easy in most cases.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Alfresco provides by default a very user-friendly user interface, And it's highly configurable. Moreover, the license model is really interesting compared to both solutions

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

  • 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

  • Jahia provides marketing and other teams the ability to focus on developing their digital experience while not being at the mercy of IT objectives.
