About Alfresco



Alfresco is the leading open source alternative for enterprise content management. It couples the innovation of open source with the stability of a true enterprise-class platform. The open source model allows Alfresco to use best-of-breed open source technologies and contributions from the open source community to get higher quality software produced more quickly at much lower cost.

Why Frontware proposes Alfresco?

- Alfresco was designed to solve the most pervasive and difficult problems in content management. Alfresco is perfect for developing enterprise and departmental portals, compliance applications or replacing uncontrolled shared file drives. Alfresco's architecture is modular and standards-based allowing you to use only the functionality you want or add new functionality as requirements grow with standard tools. Alfresco's modularity and execution paths offer greater performance and scalability.

- Easy to use

Alfresco has employed a user-centered design that has packaged easy-to-use portal components for managing and organizing content. Alfresco's integrations with file and content management standards makes authoring content as easy as "Save As...".

- Built by the people who invented content management

Alfresco's team led by John Newton has unrivaled experience in building enterprise scaleable content management systems. Alfresco's team of computer scientists and engineers having built the leading Java Content Management systems of the 1990's saw how the open source movement could help them deliver on their dream of letting content management become a tool for all.

- Open source, open standards

Alfresco is open source and open standards which means that you don't have to buy it to try it. Open standards means that you are not locked into any vendor.

- Faster than existing content repositories

Alfresco's team has created a new architecture based on their experience of first client server and then the first generation of web content management applications. Using ASPECT programming techniques they literally shorten the distance (in programming terms) making response time at least 10 times faster and more predictable as you add new users.

- All the content capabilities and applications you will ever need

By making the open standards content repository open source and free to developers they transform the economics of building content management applications. The Alfresco developer network will rapidly become the most popular platform for content management applications for software vendors and enterprise programmers alike.

- Much lower cost of deployment

Open source minimizes Alfresco's sales and marketing costs. This re-focuses Alfresco's funds and management effort on product development, engineering and quality which delivers a lower cost, better designed solution than that which closed source companies provide.

- Adapts to your changing requirements

Alfresco's distributed, aspect-oriented architecture allows you to plug and play new security modules, storage options, workflow engines and more, it is completely customizable in every aspect possible. Alfresco will offer different deployment options based on your company timing, IT support, and business needs.

- Quality and experience

Alfresco offers a fast implementation out of the box content portal that enables you to start receiving the benefits within minutes of downloading the application. It is so intuitive it's as easy as 'SAVE AS' to have your users collaborating on content contributions in seconds.
