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.

Seismic

Seismic is well suited for scenarios that merit additional enablement beyond my own abilities. Our company has put a lot of money into creating assets and enablement pieces to help drive revenue, so that extra arrow in our quiver is very helpful in the sales cycle. Some scenarios require a more personal touch, so some of the enablement material isn't as relevant.

Cons

  • When users are members of 1000 sites or more, certain features such as sites dashlet do not work properly.
  • There isn't any integration between Alfresco and Microsoft Outlook for Mac. IMAP integration has flaws that can cause loss of email.
  • Mobile app doesn't have a site search feature. this is problematic when you have thousands of sites and you need to access one where you have not saved it as a favorite.

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

N/A - Seismic is the first tool I've used of ita kind, the closest thing is Google Docs where we made a poor attempt to share and organize our materials.

  • I can't provide a quantifiable number, however, it has saved our department A LOT of time. We no longer have to dig up files stuck in emails or downloaded on the computer. It's out one-stop-shop for all our documents we need on a daily basis.
