The Register - Alfresco ECM gilds IBM's Lotus suite
Open source vendor Alfresco Software is rolling its enterprise content management (ECM) system into IBM's Lotus collaboration products to serve as a stronger counterpoint to Microsoft Sharepoint and reach smaller-sized business customers.
The company is also teaming with RightScale's software-as-a-service cloud management platform to offer a cloud deployment option for the newest version of Alfresco Enterprise Edition.
When IBM's Lotusphere conference kicks off next week in Orlando, Florida, Big Blue will show off a technical preview of Alfresco Content Services for Lotus social collaboration wares. The showing is an integration between Alfresco ECM and IBM Lotus Quickr, Lotus Notes, Lotus Connections, and WebSphere Portal.
