London, UK (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
Alfresco, the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, today announced that the SAP Global IT team has selected Alfresco Enterprise as it global standard for document collaboration, content management and publishing.
SAP evaluated a number of ECM solutions, including Alfresco Enterprise, while searching for a platform that could be used to integrate with the various document management systems in place at that time. Critical to SAP’s selection of Alfresco Enterprise was its lightweight, scalable, full-featured capabilities and ability to run seamlessly alongside other systems, from SAP® products to custom Java-based sites. SAP has rolled out the collaboration platform, Alfresco Share & Document Management.
“Alfresco provides us with a robust and scalable content management and document collaboration platform,” said Ran Cliff, vice president, IT, SAP AG. “Alfresco Enterprise has the capabilities and flexibility to not only handle a mammoth amount of files and documents, but it also continues to support our ongoing content management re-quirements and is growing with us. Because the Alfresco solution is built on an open-source architecture, our team can scrutinize every element of the code and its work-ings. As a result, the trial period took place without any of the usual burdens and tribula-tions associated with a proof-of-concept. It also safeguards our freedom to adopt technologies in the future without compatibility or integration concerns.”
Using Alfresco Enterprise, SAP will benefit from enterprise subscriptions services including technical support, product maintenance releases, extended quality assurance and extensive platform support.
“Working with the SAP team has been a pleasure,” said John Powell, CEO of Alfresco. “As one of the leading software companies in the world, SAP’s commitment to standardize on the Alfresco ECM solution highlights the benefits all large, global corporations can achieve by leveraging open-source solutions generally and specifically in an SAP environment.”
