Alfresco Content Management for the
OEM and Software Vendor




Embedding Alfresco software is a natural extension of the OEM and ISV business model and
choosing Alfresco is a logical choice because it is 100% Java, based on open standards, full-featured
and lightweight.

In response to growing demand, Alfresco has introduced its OEM partner program specifically
designed to support those interested in embedding Enterprise Content Management into their
applications. The program is intended to let OEMs and ISVs concentrate on their core competencies,
product development and support of their product, and not on building and maintaining content
management technologies.

Partners receive the Alfresco source code under a commercial license and have the ability to leverage
core Alfresco developers to help them optimize their solutions. All with the peace of mind that
Alfresco engineers are supporting their end customer deployments that embed Alfresco enterprise
content management.
