LONDON, May 15th, 2007 – Alfresco Software, Inc., the first and leading provider of open source enterprise content management solutions, has been recognized as a Laureate by the Computerworld Honors Program. This year’s Honorees will be commemorated during the 19th Annual Laureates Medal Ceremony & Gala Awards Evening on June 4, 2007 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
