Austin, TX and London, United Kingdom — August 14, 2009 —Alfresco Software, Inc., the leading provider of open source enterprise content management (ECM) software, and Blue Fish Development Group, Ltd., an ECM-focused consulting and application development firm based in Austin, TX, today announced that Blue Fish has become a member of the Alfresco Software Gold Partner Program.

The strategic relationship provides Alfresco with an experienced ECM sales and delivery partner focused on Texas. This region offers Alfresco considerable growth potential, being the third largest US region in the Alfresco community.

“We’re very excited to have Blue Fish join our team. They are one of the most experienced, exclusively ECM-focused consulting firms in the US,” said John Newton, CTO and Chairman of Alfresco. “Blue Fish has a track record of successfully delivering creative ECM solutions, building ECM user communities to share knowledge and solving challenging business problems for Fortune 1000 companies. They bring to open source ECM invaluable expertise based on over a decade of development on traditional ECM systems.”

For Blue Fish, the partnership marks a strategic decision to embrace enterprise open source. The openness of the platform and the support of the large open source community make it easy to innovate with Alfresco, which will help Blue Fish service their clients better and provide complete solutions at a lower price point.

“We see Alfresco as a game changer in the world of ECM,” said Michael Trafton, Founder and CEO of Blue Fish. “Especially in the current economic climate, companies are looking for ways to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership of their ECM infrastructure, and Alfresco’s open source strategy is a great way to do that. This is especially true for smaller organizations or departments within larger companies that can’t justify the expense of a traditional ECM solution. Alfresco really broadens our market by allowing us to take our brand of services to more companies than we have been able to in the past.”

Blue Fish and Alfresco are kicking off the partnership with a joint webinar that showcases how Blue Fish leverages Alfresco Share for their project operations.
