Customer Quotes

“Alfresco enables our projects to be
built more simply
,
with less
effort
,
and they are
more maintainable over time
.



(Director of software and infrastructure solutions at a large health
insurance company)

“The
rate of change at Alfresco
as compared to other vendors
is
phenomena
l. It was one of the reasons why we were so keen of looking
into it further. They are very innovative. The pace of change,
the amount
of features that came in, was incredible
. It has got some real competitive
edge elements to it.”

(
Senior IT manager at a financial service company)


Alfresco is right up with the commercial players
. Almost in any kind of
RFI/RFP now, I will look at a professional open source company
alongside the commercial vendors.”

These are people.

ECM wasn’t built for them… so they
aren’t using it.

People .

Your enterprise content is in here somewhere.

2012

Alfresco aims to disrupt the industry
again, with the power of the cloud

What is Cloud Connected Content?


Accessible

from
any device


phone,
tablet
, PC


Integrated

synced

Easily published

social

Collaborated on

firewall



Yet,
still
controlled and administered
by the Enterprise


Why isn’t it available today?


Legacy proprietary vendors
are
trapped in legacy architecture



Can’t deliver a true multi
-
tenanted, integrated cloud solution


Mobile apps only work with on
-
premise service


No integrations with cloud services or social media


Hard (and risky) to adapt their license business model to the cloud



Up
-
start, cloud
-
only vendors
lack depth, integration &
customization



Don’t deliver full enterprise control over security & policy


Don’t deliver on
-
premise or behind
-
the
-
firewall options


One
-
size
-
fits
-
all approach doesn’t fit business processes
