Linux mag says watch alfresco
Congratulations to Alfresco Software. Thanks to their acclaimed Open Source ECM Solution and social networking capabilities, they have just been named one of Linux Magazine’s Top 20 Companies to Watch in 2008. Linux Magazine comprises a list of the top 20 companies and technologies that the editors feel will have the most significant impact on the technology industry in the coming year. In order to be chosen as a Top 20 company, all companies had to be members of the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community, and must have made a major impact or significant contribution to the community in 2007. The Linux Magazine editors complied the list after consulting with industry experts, conducting a reader poll, and using their own industry observations. Alfresco, who last year was listed as one of ten enterprise software companies to watch by LinuxWorld, was recognized for its new enterprise social computing platform release that features integration with Facebook. “Alfresco is a very nice collaboration platform alternative to being locked into Microsoft SharePoint,” said Joe Brockmeier, Editor of Linux Magazine, “and with the added Facebook integration, Alfresco is sure to gain more visibility in 2008.” Alfresco recently announced the integration of Alfresco with Facebook, allowing enterprise content to be uploaded and shared with customers and employees in a “controlled, secure and audited way.”
