“Consider a future device … in which all of your books, records, and communications have been stored and engineered to be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility. You now have an enlarged intimate supplement to your memory.”
Last year, we addressed the rhetorical question
mechanisms to measure and improve.
The new content management systems, collaboration tools and corporate portals have improved access to information. However, they have also created an information deluge. New information silos arise on a daily basis, via 'old school desktop sync (dropbox, box ..) or data and document 'stores' in the cloud. Without a doubt, accessibility (A) has improved, and concurrent editing is a wonderful achievement in Google Drive or Microsoft Office online. But confidentiality and integrity (CI) have suffered. Alongside cognitive clarity.
Today, software and service as often merged into one concept. Alfred is our solution to achieve the highest standards in performance and availability when running Alfresco Content Services. It is software, a reference architecture, best practices & managed services. Our arsenal of tools consists of proactive monitoring, systematic failure analysis, downtime avoidance, and continuous performance tuning.
With an Alfred subscription, you get the classical advantages from a commercial subscription-like warranty and support, road-map input, early release, rapid bug correction, and fast security updates. But what you really get, as good as we can deliver, as the results you need in line with your budget:
- 99.9 % or better availability
- 95 % of searches return results in 3 seconds
- users need 3 clicks or less to retrieve the document they need
Last March, I attended the annual Alfresco Sales Kickoff event, held in Dublin. The aim of the event was to bring together Alfresco Top management, the Sales and Marketing teams, and key partners and share the global vision.
I represented Xenit, which was the only Belgian partner that attended and sponsored the conference.
