Alfresco, the open platform for social content management, and WeWebU Software AG, the maker of OpenWorkdesk, have announced their global technology partnership. Together, they are offering the Open Source alternative for transactional content management: WeWebU OpenWorkdesk on Alfresco.

WeWebU integrated their OpenWorkdesk suite of composite content applications seamlessly into the Alfresco platform using CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services). Both, Alfresco and WeWebU, are deeply involved in further developing the CMIS standard as active members of the OASIS CMIS Technical Committee. WeWebU OpenWorkdesk is the first choice of many organizations for transactional content management where maximum throughput and efficiency are key requirements. Although it comes with a pure web front-end it is as user friendly as a fat client and dramatically increases the user acceptance and roll-out speed in ECM projects.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Alfresco, because OpenWorkdesk and Alfresco are a perfect match: on the technical side both companies are dedicated to CMIS, while on the commercial side they share the commitment to the open source model. Combining WeWebU OpenWorkdesk with the Alfresco platform provides a very cost-efficient but nevertheless fully professional way of providing transactional content management applications for medium-size and large organizations from the financial industry as well as for the public sector. Our partnership solves the contradiction between user-friendly ECM-applications and limited IT budgets," stated Stefan Waldhauser, CEO at WeWebU.

Earlier this year, Alfresco named OpenWorkdesk as its EMEA Solution of the Year, because of its innovative use of the Alfresco platform. "WeWebU adds complementary products and value to our open platform and thus helps us to achieve our ambitious growth targets,” said John Newton, CTO of Alfresco “Their suite of applications for transactional content management is a perfect fit for the Alfresco platform and our community at large."

From September 20 until 22, WeWebU will present OpenWorkdesk on Alfresco ECM in live demos at the Alfresco booth D36 in hall 7 at DMS EXPO in Stuttgart.
