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.

Pros

  • Document management i.e. it promotes a paperless office
  • Cloud solution i.e. ability to access content outside your work zone
  • Collaborative web content
  • It also brings content and process together

  • XWiki makes it easy to manage semi-structured information, which is at the heart of every knowledge nexus of organizations. It makes it easy to manage in a single system both structured data (such as memberships, projects), and unstructured data.
  • XWiki offers a very rich API for creating enterprise applications quickly that are easy to maintain and evolve collaboratively.
  • XWiki templating and skinning system is extremely flexible and powerful.

Cons

  • Some more APIs can be added although the existing APIs very well provide the required features.
  • Their other tools such as collaboration, etc need to be marketed well so that companies adopt Alfresco as a whole package.
  • Alfresco needs to be on the lookout for immediately introducing any new functions provided by other competitive products.

  • While the basic pieces are available for turning XWiki into an advanced semantic system, some features could be made available more prominently to the user for easing the use of faceted and typed links, paving the way for a new era of collaborative knowledge sharing.

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

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.

XWiki key differentiators in my opinion:
  • Fast app development framework with very rich API
  • Open-source strategy, opening the way to collaborative innovation

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

  • XWiki has a positive impact on the OW2 communication and collaborations strategies. It saves time when developing applications.
