Alfresco and IBM partner to take ECM to the clouds

by | Jan 28, 2010

Alfresco Software announced the availability of Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2, the latest version of its enterprise content management (ECM) product at the recently completed Lotusphere conference held in Orlando, Florida.

Alfresco said it worked with IBM to develop integration between Alfresco ECM and IBM Lotus social software due to the modern, open, REST-based architecture of Alfresco”s ECM software and the forthcoming Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard, which will improve interoperability between ECM systems.

A report from Econtent Magazine said that the partnership was "driven" by IBM wanting to add content management to Lotus Notes.

"We have delivered on a critical customer need by integrating an open, easily deployable back-end ECM platform into the Lotus social collaboration suite," said Jeff Schick, vice president of IBM social computing software.

Schick added that the partnership will not only give Lotus users "strong content management," but will also allow the Alfresco community access to Lotus” social collaboration tools.

With this release, Alfresco said it enables cloud-based deployments, streamlines email management and archiving and enhances team-based content collaboration. In addition, the Alfresco Enterprise 3.2 Records Management module is the only supported open-source solution to have been certified to the 5015.02 standard, it said.
