Alfresco to launch open source ECM system

Antony Savvas

London-based software company Alfresco is about to release an open source enterprise content management (ECM) system to help organisations keep track of their electronic data.

Alfresco was started in January by John Newton, co-founder of ECM provider Documentum and John Powell, the former chief operating officer of business intelligence firm Business Objects.

The Alfresco product automatically processes information into files and adds metadata, so information can be found using Google-like searches.

The company says its beta product is already being tested by a number of corporate users, with its development being speeded up by the open source developer community.

The Alfresco preview release can be downloaded from the company's website here:
