May 27, 2009—Alfresco Software Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM), and ECM consulting and software company Armedia today announced that Alfresco CTO John Newton will be delivering the keynote address to kick off Armedia’s one-day Open Source ECM Seminar, to be held June 9, 2009 at the Delta Airlines headquarters in Atlanta, Ga.
In addition to providing content management products and services to customers across a number of industries, including finance, health care, transportation, technology and education, Armedia has established a unique focus and expertise in the government IT sector and maintains a strong foothold in the southeast region of the U.S. The company first partnered with Alfresco in 2007 and has strongly supported its efforts in driving open source ECM adoption.
“Our partnership with Alfresco has been critical to the growth of our business for the past several years, as the company provides the industry’s best enterprise-scale open source ECM solution that is increasingly in demand and ideal for a range of customers, from smaller start-ups to global conglomerates,” said Jim Nasr, CEO, Armedia. “We are very pleased our seminar will be highlighted by a presentation from Alfresco CTO John Newton, a true innovator and pioneer in both the ECM and open source industries who can provide attendees with not only a ‘state of the industry,’ but a glimpse into what lies ahead.”
The Open Source ECM Seminar will include technology demonstrations and case studies detailing how Alfresco is different from Documentum™ and SharePoint™ and reveal the latest in document management, web content management and web 2.0 style collaboration. In addition, Newton’s address will focus on Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS), the proposed standard for content management, which is set to become as critical as SQL.
“Armedia has established itself as a key driver of technology and services in the ECM space, and its commitment to Alfresco has helped us continue to expand our integrations and deliver on the promise of open source in a number of new industries,” said Newton. “This seminar is just another example of Armedia’s dedication to its customers and to the open source community, and we look forward to working with them to educate customers about how open source and CMIS will become the foundation for building a new generation of content collaboration and social computing applications.”
