Alfresco: Open source document management

The CMS / document management is crowded and confusing. Many of our clients seem to spend a fortune on systems that really don't seem to function very well. Alfresco has a core management team from documentum - the grand daddy of document management. This pedigree makes it interesting. I heard about it via this podcast from Phil Windley: "Alfresco is the leading open source alternative for enterprise content management. The company's CTO, John Newton, joins Phil, Scott, and Ben to discuss how Alfresco uses an open source strategy to assist organizations to manage the capture, storage, security, revision control, retrieval, distribution, preservation and destruction of documents and content. In addition to reviewing the technical aspects, he talks about the practical uses of the system." John Newton - Technometria: Enterprise Content Management
