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

Jahia is well suited if at leats one of the situations occure : - Important UX requirements- Integration projects
- Multi-sites, multi-language
- Different sites development by different teams that should fit in one shared instance
- High availability, clustering
- High load, high performance
- Need for a headless CMS
- A/B testing and market automation
- Stable architecture with limited risks of incompatibilities between modules
- Excellent support from the editor in enterprise distribution
There is a free community distribution that can be used as entry level, but as soon as a project becomes critical I'd strongly recommend the enterprise distribution. While subscription costs of the enterprise distribution are relatively low compared to ones of other enterprise CMS, they could be more progressive and can be problematic for intermediate projects. This is mainly a problem for the first site at a client, as the subscription costs don't directly depend on the number of deployed sites.

Pros

  • Collaboration - it is an excellent tool for collaboration and makes it very easy for several people to work on projects together.
  • Scripting - If there is something that Alfresco does not do natively, you can use their custom API to do almost anything that you want.
  • Interface - The interface of the application is nice and neat, and is very easy to use and understand.

  • It's flexible and accommodating from a page layout perspective
  • It works with other content production platforms like Bootstrap
  • It simultaneously supports multiple users

Cons

  • Workflows - I believe that creating workflows from the API is a little cumbersome. I think that they could package a few more generic workflows or it could be a little easier to create one.

  • User interface not exactly informative at first glance
  • Lack of basic features such as multiple photo upload selection
  • It always reloads any page's updates to the top
  • Removes some pieces of html after "edit" refresh, like Bootstrap's icons
  • Edit's mode window size doesn't reflect actual size of a content column's width

We have too much invested into it now to choose a different product. We have been using them from almost the beginning, and have seen decent improvements in documentation, functionality and customer support

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

Ultimately a cost decision - Alfresco community is free and has a decent community and various forums, books, etc available. The enterprise version is far less expensive than other options (although costs can add up depending on the the hardware it's running on). It is built upon alot of other mainstream products such as lucene/solr, spring, java and fits into our environment nicely.

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

  • One company has replaced the Documentum with Alfresco and it has created a positive impact on ROI, as the cost of Alfresco is less compared to Documentum.
  • Another company has used this platform to store Statement of work documents with integration of SFDC., The business is happy to see the integration is seamless.

  • It's secure
  • Helps to deliver a message or explains a product
  • It doesn't have direct impact on overall business objectives—it only supports those objectives
