Acquia Announces Partnership With Alfresco to Power Dynamic Content Applications [June 18, 2013]

Burlington, MA – June 18, 2013 – Acquia, where great digital experiences begin, today announced a strategic partnership with Alfresco, the open platform for business-critical content management and collaboration. With this relationship, Acquia builds on Alfresco’s open platform to extend the web experience applications that enable customers to quickly build content applications that span traditional documents, structured editorial workflows and dynamic multi-channel delivery. The combination gives customers unprecedented freedom to combine content, community and commerce capabilities into unified digital experiences that drive business results.

“Our partnership with Alfresco represents a key milestone in our efforts to help enterprises build business-critical digital experiences that work inside the enterprise, in the cloud and across mobile channels,” said Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia. “Our customers and partners can take advantage of our best-of-breed open-source platforms to create web applications that accelerate content delivery, increase customer satisfaction and foster collaboration across the enterprise. Alfresco recently moved its own web site to Drupal, a demonstration of our mutual commitment to a joint customer solution.”

Acquia and Alfresco each provide open source platforms that address complementary aspects of an organization’s content infrastructure. With Acquia and Drupal, organizations can build and maintain multi-channel digital experiences for content, community and commerce applications — faster and with greater agility. Additionally, with more than 20,000 Drupal modules available for use, enterprises can take advantage of reusable components to simplify and accelerate new site deployments.

On the content production side, Alfresco offers document management and editorial production workflow capabilities to support critical, content-centric applications that require structured approval and publishing processes.

“For digital experiences that span web, mobile and social Acquia helps create content applications that accelerate collaborative business processes and deepen engagement,” said Doug Dennerline, CEO of Alfresco. “Together, we deliver best-of-breed solutions that enable our customers and partners to develop holistic content strategies that span documents and the web.”

The combination of Acquia and Alfresco offers enterprises a powerful, open approach to business critical content applications, including regulated content applications, internal and external social applications with document collaboration needs, and websites with extensive content repositories.

"We're combining Drupal and Alfresco to create a world class policy maintenance tool as well as an awesome foundation for creating innovative ways for us to collaborate and manage documents," said Brian Boyer, manager of application development at Mercy Health System.
