Alfresco and Sopra Announce New European Platinum Partnership
Paris, October 23th 2014 - Alfresco and Sopra have just signed a European-level Platinum Partnership that will expand their existing partnership to include all of the European countries in which Sopra is present: France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. This follows on from a well-established existing partnership in France, based on over 50 successful Sopra/Alfresco projects, as well as recent inroads made by Sopra into the UK market with Alfresco. Sopra’s dedicated Alfresco Skills Centres in France and Spain bring together over 30 Alfresco experts, and support our local consultancy teams across Europe.
John Pomeroy (VP Sales EMEA for Alfresco) explained: “Sopra has been a strong, long-standing partner of Alfresco and they have successfully delivered some great innovative projects for our mutual customers. Broadening this relationship across Europe is a logical extension of our relationship for both companies and will ultimately benefit a broader range of customers.”
The new partnership was recently cemented at the Alfresco Summit, held in London from 7th to 9th October 2014. The European event gathered more than 600 delegates, offering them over 60 sessions to choose from, including plenary, technical and specialist solution tracks. According to Alfresco clients and partners in attendance, the success of the event was down to the quality of the presenters and the opportunity to hear more about the new features in version 5 of Alfresco, which is soon to be released. The innovative quality of the Alfresco solution has been recognised for a 6th consecutive time by Gartner.
Pierre Yves Commanay (Sopra’s Director for Europe) commented: “We have developed a solid partnership with Alfresco over the years and each successful project further strengthens our confidence in their products. Having a stronger focus on Europe is a clear objective for Sopra, and this goes hand in hand with strong partnerships like the one we have with Alfresco.”
