Alfresco Wins EContent 100 Award For Enterprise Content Management

Alfresco Honored as Leading Provider of Open Source ECM Software

LONDON—November 15, 2007 — Alfresco Software, Inc., today announced it has been named to the seventh annual EContent 100 Awards list. The EContent 100 is made up of companies that have had a significant impact on the digital content industry. Other winners this year include Apple, Google, IBM and Microsoft.

EContent Magazine gives the award to the top 100 companies that lead the digital content industry through market share, but also thought-and-technology leadership, innovation, and experimentation. This is the second year in a row that Alfresco has been chosen as a winner of the EContent 100 for Enterprise Content Management.

“To be recognized once again as a leader in content management reaffirms that Alfresco has created a valuable open source solution that fills a significant need for many businesses,” said John Powell, CEO of Alfresco Software. “Companies small and large have to deal with enormous amounts of content. By using open source technology, Alfresco can provide an alternative solution to proprietary offerings, which not only matches up on features and functionality but provides higher quality content management at a fraction of the cost.”

“The EContent 100 list represents the best and the brightest digital content companies as selected by a dozen judges who follow different aspects of our vast and varied industry – from vantage points all over the map (literally and figuratively),” said Michelle Manafy, editor-in-chief of EContent Magazine. “We offer this list not just to recognize companies that lead our industry, but to inspire organizations of all kinds to join in the content conversation online.”

Alfresco recently announced the integration of Alfresco with Facebook to deliver a platform for developing content-centric applications. This integration makes publishing content to Facebook as controlled and effective as publishing to a corporate Web site. The Alfresco Enterprise Content Network application, which is built on this framework, enables collaboration and makes secure, audited, sharing of content in Facebook as simple as sharing a photo. Alfresco is the first of its kind to launch an enterprise application for Facebook. The company plans to announce details of the newest edition of Alfresco in December of this year.
