Alfresco Review

Some of the user interface could be more intuitive but rapid deployment and ease of installation are valuable.

Valuable Features:

The features which are most valuable to us are rapid deployment, ease of installation, ease of use, and Linux platform support.

Room for Improvement:

Some of the user interface could be more intuitive, such as the new record category, where the expression is a term and not really a dynamically evaluated expression as it might imply.

Use of Solution:

I have been using the solution for 3 months.

Deployment Issues:

Alfresco was a very smooth deployment, but the Records Management module 2.2.0 needed a forced deployment: total time to deploy (without file plan setup) was less than 1 day.

Stability Issues:

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues:

No issues with scalability.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup was very simple.

Implementation Team:

We implemented in-house.


We are still evaluating the ROI.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Daily cost is insignificant: just storage and backup.
