Alfresco Enterprise 3.1 WCM
ABSTRACT
Alfresco Enterprise is considered a true Enterprise Content Management(ECM) platform because of its capabilities in all the disciplines of contentmanagement: Document Management, Digital Records Management, DigitalAsset Management, and Web Content Management. Similar to other ECMproducts, Alfresco sees its value in bringing together and harmonizingcontent across an organization, not for its excellence in any one area. Also,consistent with its ECM industry peers, the Alfresco solution is expensive.While there is a free "Community Edition," it contains experimental featuresand neither Alfresco nor its partners will support it. Customers that usethe Enterprise Edition can expect to pay between $20,000 and $50,000 inmandatory annual subscription fees.The underlying philosophy behind the product is to provide a powerfulcontent repository and a robust application programming interface (API)for building content-centric business applications. Alfresco delivers verywell on this promise. Alfresco's repository supports advanced functionality(such as user sandboxes, event based content rules, and virtualization)historically seen only in upper tier commercial software. Recent releasesof Alfresco have introduced more elegant and powerful APIs and a newframework, "Surf," for building content enabled web applications. Alfresco isparticularly attractive to architects building unique, custom applications. Theresulting solutions tend to employ elaborate architectures and hefty helpingsof custom code which are sometimes overkill for the business problems theyare trying to solve.Over the past year, the Alfresco team has been pursuing the knowledge-worker collaboration market that was exposed by the success of SharePoint.Indeed, most of the software company's engineering bandwidth is focusedon its new "Share" application. Like SharePoint, Alfresco's support fortraditional web publishing has been neglected. While the underlying APIsare available, Alfresco's user interface is clearly not designed for use as astand alone, best of breed web content management system. In fact, manysystems integrators build their own contributor user interfaces using usingWeb Scripts, Alfresco's highly productive server side scripting interface.
