Open source enterprise content management solutions provider Alfresco recently announced it will host an event aimed at assisting organizations in the public sector deal with challenges experienced with managing their content.
According to a press release, the Alfresco Content.Gov 2011 event, which will be held on January 20 in Washington, D.C., will invite public sector technology executives and content management experts to learn how to improve the ECM practices using Alfresco solutions.
Several ECM challenges currently face government agencies, including tighter record-keeping and internal control regulations, greater need for transparency and stricter budgets. Alfresco stated it will review several individual cases that highlight both the struggles and success agencies have had managing their content.
"The challenges that public sector agencies currently face are more demanding than ever before," said John Newton, Alfresco founder and chief technology officer. "Agencies are expected to be more open and transparent while facing stricter controls and budget cuts. We are excited to have Alfresco customers present their own experiences to further reveal the opportunity open source ECM presents."
