According to Eric Barroca, deputy general manager in charge of operations: "The new Nuxeo 5 platform benefits from an integrated and innovative vision of ECM, resulting from our 5-year experience working for major accounts in the public administration and in the industry, and is able to address the new market constraints. With the switch to Java we witness an increase of programmer productivity and application robustness and scalability, on all the business-critical projects we are now addressing".
"The availability of Nuxeo 5 in the Java EE environment is to be put in perspective with the upcoming open sourcing of the Java technology", says Eric Mahe, Marketing Director for New Technologies, Sun France.
