Alfresco, the first to provide an open source enterprise content management solution, has announced the availability of Alfresco 2.0 for the distributed enterprise. The company says distributed content management provides users with integrated repositories, search across multiple repositories as well as the Internet, and also enables simple applications to take advantage of access to multiple repositories.
Alfresco further reports its new offering delivers simple, standards-based, distributed search encompassing not only multiple Alfresco repositories but the Internet as well. Complementing that capability is the company's content solution packaging mechanism, Alfresco Module Packaging (AMP). Alfresco 2.0 also delivers an integrated content platform with the production release of Web Content Management and AMP-enabled Records Management.
Alfresco highlights the following features in 2.0:
- Open search--standards-based search across multiple Alfresco content repositories and other RSS or Atom repositories including blogs and wikis;
- Web content management production release--simple and rapid import of existing Web sites with support for any content authoring or Web development tool;
- Alfresco Module Packaging (AMP)--complete content solutions to share globally across all repositories, includes code, content model, content and folder structures; and
- AMP-enabled records management--develop and consistently distribute records management policies according to corporate rules through AMP.
