EContent Named Alfresco One of the Companies That Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry

LONDON—November 20, 2006—Alfresco Software, Inc., the first and leading provider of an open source enterprise content management solution, has been named among the 100 leaders in the digital content industry by EContent Magazine for the second straight year. Judges of the EContent 100 recognized Alfresco for its continued leadership in thought, technology and innovation in content management including intranets and portals. The award is shared with notable companies such as Google, EMC, DIGG and Microsoft. Alfresco has been named to the list for each of its first two years in existence.

"This year saw consolidation take hold in the enterprise content management world and the future holds even more," said Dr. Ian Howells, chief marketing officer, Alfresco Software, Inc. "Alfresco has grown tremendously in the past year, both with support from the open source community as well as traction into large enterprises in banking, government, publishing and with a host of others that need a truly powerful yet flexible ECM system."

"Consolidation continued its steady march through 2006, while innovation brought many new players with interesting technologies to the market," said EContent Magazine Editor Michelle Manafy. "We started by looking at our list from last year, then only considered those companies, like Alfresco, that showed continued leadership in the market, technology, thought, innovation and experimentation. After a lot of arguing and discussion, only the strongest survived."

The EContent 100 list is available in the December print issue of the magazine and online at
