Alfresco Software makes it easier to work remotely with latest platform

Alfresco Software, an open source, content services provider, is releasing the Alfresco Federation Services, enabling users to streamline information across the enterprise.

Alfresco Federation Services is a new capability that runs on the Alfresco Digital Business Platform and helps enterprises manage, connect, and protect their important information across multiple, disparate content applications, network file shares, and email systems .

It enables designated employees to conduct simultaneous searches across more than sixty different business and content repositories (e.g. Box, Documentum, Dropbox, IBM FileNet, Google Drive, Microsoft SharePoint, Network File Shares, OpenText, Slack, and many other content systems) from a single, controlled interface in order to serve up relevant information quickly.

“The coronavirus pandemic is fundamentally changing the way enterprises need to operate for the foreseeable future – in many respects, it has become a lightning rod for digital transformation,” said Tony Grout, chief product officer, Alfresco. “As government agencies and businesses around the world are quarantining their employees and exercising corporate social distancing, ‘working from home’ has become the new reality. Of particular concern is the underlying security, regulatory compliance, and records management that needs to be put in place.”

With Alfresco Federation Services, employees can find the information they need faster, and then be able to perform the tasks they want to – all from their desktop, no matter where they are located.

It also enables organizations to keep their information stored in its current repository or application, but still enjoy the benefits of the Alfresco Digital Business Platform by creating a connection between the content and repository to facilitate retention, holds, dispositions and workflow.

Alfresco Federation Services also protects the integrity of content with records management and open government standards compliance, including SIO 15489, ISO 16175, DoD 5015.02 CH2 and CH3, VERS, EgovG, and MoReq.
