Alfresco Software has updated its open source process automation, content management and information governance software.
The immodestly named Alfresco Insight Engine creates dashboard-style statistics and data trend reports that previously required what the company decries as more arduous and time consuming Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) tools and techniques.
Results can be obtained by querying existing Solr indices with familiar SQL statements.
Users can use the out-of-the-box report builder or existing enterprise business intelligence tools to analyse unstructured information.
With a library of over 150 components, the Alfresco Application Development Framework uses angular and material design technologies to help developers build across multiple platforms.
Alfresco Process Services now includes a Quick Start for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Alfresco Content Services can be used by IT teams to build services, package them in Docker containers and then use Kubernetes for deployment into cloud environments such as AWS or Microsoft Azure.
Also in the product updates section here, Alfresco Governance Services 3.0 now offers enhanced features for records management and compliance, as well as enhanced desktop sync functionality for both Windows and Mac.
It appears that Build, Deploy & Iterate is the ‘new’ Extract, Transform & Load.
