Redmond Developer - Alfresco Launches Cloud Developer Program
Alfresco, a leading provider of open source enterprise content management software, last week launched a developer program for those looking to build ECM applications that can run in the cloud.
The Alfresco Cloud Developer Program gives participants tools to build cloud-enabled apps that can be used for collaboration and document management. The program also entitles developers access to various content, including training webinars. Developers can also receive 24x7 support.
Many customers are interested in piloting cloud-based applications based on Alfresco's ECM technology, said Ian Howells, the company's chief marketing officer. "I think a high proportion is looking at evaluating the cloud today but I think most will be storing their content internally," he said in an interview.
