Alfresco ECM

Alfresco Enterprise Content Management is well suited for any sized organization with content management needs.

Microsoft Office 365

I think Microsoft Office 365 is appropriate for all companies, small to large, where the need for a comprehensive and easy to use suite of tools is present. Financial spreadsheets, reports on Microsoft Word, and even automation that in a click of a button does a series of previously manual processes.

Cons

Alfresco ECM

  • Alfresco is a bundle of technology packaged together, so this solution requires a lot of expertise if you want to customize a lot your solution.

  • You must have wifi to connect, which is not always available. My clients are all government based, and they will not let you connect directly to their Network and wifi typically needs permissions to use.
  • When sending and receiving emails, depending on the strength of your wifi, you can get an internal timeout where your email crashes and has to be resent.
  • It is not as robust as its Outlook counterpart, but I will assume that it was designed that way on purpose. It does not replicate the functionality that Outlook does.

There are many features of Office that we cannot replicate in any other tool. Plus people know it already. It's not going away anytime soon.

Microsoft Office 365 has great usability. No need for high expertise to start using its tools. If you want to develop something more complex then I advice previous study, like VBA coding.

Easy to reach, fast response. Many forums on the web where you can gather information about any problem you are having, this is really useful. For developers, it is really good too.

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.

I've played with OpenOffice some, but have not spent that much time with it. OpenOffice was helpful for editing some pdf files I needed to update. No MS Office product was able to do this.
Evernote was handy for on-the-go note taking with their mobile app, but I didn't use it often enough while at my computer to have enough skill for using it during lectures.
