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.

Outsystems is very well suited not only for web but also for mobile applications, and also integrating with other systems.

  • Timers may be handled in another way. Sometimes when there are problems, it seems that the timer is still running but actually it's not. The Service Center should be improved to give more options and feedback about the times when it is still running or allow users to stop timers.
  • It would be an improvement if I could set up a timer to run more than 3 times from the service center.
  • The entities are accessed directly from the web screens, it should have another concept that abstracts it. Instead of entities, another technical element like 'view' should automatically be created. With this new technical element, only 'view' is used in he web screen preparation.

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 is cheap.
  • Easier to use - user-friendly.
  • It's robust and has the ability to integrate with other software.
  • It's an open source i.e. a developer or programmer can tweak to map to your company's taste.
  • Content sharing easier than other platforms, it'ss also a unified collaborative document management that has most of what the company needs for proper record keeping and cycle

TIBCO is an integration tool that is not used to create APIs. Outsystems lacks some integration functionalities that TIBCO provides. TIBCO integrates several systems with different databases more easily.

  • We were able to allocate less development resources to the project, which reduced our input costs.
