Likelihood to Recommend

Large, scalable use cases for content repositories and orchestration are well-suited. However, smaller use cases could be supported by Sharepoint or other common content services applications, as well.

Alfresco's tool is excellent. It is a rich collaboration tool, with simplified web designing for people who are less tech savvy. It has real ease in the editing and managing of image files. There is freedom in software modification and customization to fulfill customers' needs. It has dynamic development, ease of accessing current updates, and rich functionality. It has out of box scalability. It is also compatible with Windows as well as Unix, and has excellent integration with both the Office Suite and Open Office.

WHY ALFRESCO!!!!

Score 10 out of 10

Likelihood to Recommend

Alfresco is more suited for almost all working environment that deals with paper, companies which are trendy, vibrant media, techie, courier logistics companies and insurance companies as well. Irrespective of the environment, it less appropriate to introduce the usage to people above 40 who are less interested in any form of new technology development.

Alfresco Document Management Review

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

It seems to handle a large number and volume of documents. However, if you want to deviate from the 'Out of the box' experience, you will need to determine how much customization would be required and how that would be implemented. (Full blown custom UI, dashlets, java programming, scripting, etc)

Why and why not Alfresco ECM

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Well Suited:
- Companies which look for content management solutions with simple to complex workflow requirements.
- Companies which don't look for complex functionalities in content creation like DITA, web authoring, co-authoring etc.
- Fast deployment, easy adoption, and scalable teams can look into this.

Less Appropriate:
- Dynamic content publishing, co-authoring, and collaboration.

Alfresco: Best ECM solution on the market

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Alfresco is split into 2 web applications: the Alfresco core engine, and the Share Collaboration web user interface. If the Share UI is not appropriate to the use case, it's really easy to build an other UI on the top of the engine. Alfresco provides by default a lot of API and you can develop more if needed really simply and quickly.

It is enterprise content management with following capabilities:
-Document Management: You can manage millions of document easily and it provide wide rage of meta data framework.
-Web Content Management: It is like SVN model. Sand Box concept is very popular. It provides a very good WEB SCRIPT feature which makes easy integration with other applications.
-Record Management: It provides US government style record management out of box which is very useful for government type of client.
-Alfresco Share: It provides dashlets, pages and a small web application implementation feature that makes it easy to create sites for small/large domain clients.

Alfresco - A breath of fresh air in the content management arena

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.

Alfresco - A Great Option for Your Enterprise Content Management Needs

Score 10 out of 10

Likelihood to Recommend

It is well suited for document management system enterprise wide. Key questions to be asked during selection are - 1) Do you have a good in house IT team to extend the product if required and to check its implementation code so that maximum advantage can be taken from the product? 2) Are willing to spend less on a content management system?
