All software has some pros and some cons. Alfresco has some good pluses, and suits our environment very well. It fit perfectly in the place that we are working on. That is why we decided to go with this software. Overall, the kind of content management that needs to be done in an organization is what would determine which software to use.

  • EMC Documentum,MS SharePoint
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.

- Alfresco provides more capabilities by leveraging open source components. The core architecture itself is JCR compliant which gives easy options for future migrations.
- The PDF rendition in Alfresco comes with LibreOffice at no additional cost.
- Alfresco support integrations using common industry standards like CMIS, REST, CIFS, FTP, WebDAV, SharePoint Protocol etc.
- Workflow development much easier in Alfresco.

Alternatives Considered

  • Stellent Content Management System,Microsoft Sharepoint
As already explained earlier, the cost of licensing and support comes down very much by using Alfresco compared to Stellent and Sharepoint. Plus the overall performance and feature set is much broader for Alfresco. Since it is a newly developed content management system, it combines the features and best practices from already existing systems.
