Cloud Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is one of the biggest trends in business software, mostly due to its flexibility and savings the cloud offers. However, these benefits are often contended because the cloud may not be superior to on-premise ECM in all cases, and are both options mutually exclusive?
The last couple of months, at Xenit we've been working hard to get Dynamic Extensions up and running on Alfresco 6.0 and 6.1. Alfresco's Spring Global Virtual Hack-a-thon was the perfect opportunity to step up our game and kick off the final sprint towards a Dynamic Extensions 2.0 release.
Alfresco Global Virtual Hack-a-thons are open to everyone in the Alfresco community. While there is typically a large percentage of attendees who are developers, we also like to see end-users, managers and other people interested in Alfresco and its ecosystem of products (Content Services, Process Services, Governance Services, Application Development Framework, Digital Workspace, Activiti Cloud etc.).
The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) has said that ECM (Enterprise Document Management) is no longer an adequate definition for the ways in which organizations interact with these solutions. It has suggested that Intelligent Information Management (IIM) is more appropriate for describing the market space and the strategies associated with content management.
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.
Recently, we co-hosted a webinar with Alfresco, entitled “Automating content-centric processes in Insurance”. We often hear from our Insurance customers what are their main drivers for systems modernization.
The role of the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) or Content Services Platform (CSP) has never been as crucial as it is today. Organization consider ECM as a key component of their business digital transformation.
The user experience is paramount in the choice and adoption of the Alfresco Digital Platform and any Content Service Platform. Many collaboration platforms fail because business users are presented with a default layout that is neither configured to their needs, not revealing many of the offers that the platform can offer.
Most companies realize that they need a strategic Enterprise Content management (ECM) solution after they have identified an overarching business challenge - often handling too much paper or unstructured information that causes bottlenecks when trying to process, access and store the information.
