Alfresco has developed the first open-source enterprise content management (ECM) suite that is compatible with Microsoft SharePoint.

It has released a beta version of Alfresco Labs 3, which the company claims is an open-source alternative to Microsoft SharePoint. The product is designed to give users a compatible SharePoint repository.

John Newton, CTO of Alfresco Software, said, "Alfresco Labs 3 is the first ECM product to implement the SharePoint protocol and provides users with the same access from Microsoft Office, while giving companies freedom of choice in their hardware, database, operating system, application server and portal products.

Businesses can use their existing Linux and Java projects as well as Microsoft .net connection software with Alfresco, the company said.

Alfresco Labs 3 supports Microsoft Office SharePoint protocol without needing users to install any additional client software. It also includes Alfresco Surf platform for building REST-based web applications and collaborative websites.
