Computerworld UK - A Refresher Course on Alfresco
The ECM company Alfresco ought to occupy a special place in the open source pantheon for readers of this blog. As well as being one of the leading companies in its category, it shows how free software can meet the most demanding enterprise needs and – most importantly, perhaps – it's British by birth and location. As such, it offers a great example to others who might be contemplating an open source start-up, and proves that you don't have to be based in California to succeed in the world of computing.
Of course, one of the challenges for the company is to continue its success, and that means moving ever onward and upward. Yesterday, I attended the Alfresco UK Meetup – not, alas, in the open air as the name might suggest. This was part sales pitch, part update, and part roadmap.
