Open Source Evaluation Factors
• A thriving community
– A handful of lead developers, a large body of contributors, and a
substantial--or at least motivated--user group offering ideas.
• Disruptive goals
– Does something notably better than commercial code. Free isn't
enough.
• Documentation
– What good's a project that can't be implemented by those outside its
development?
• Employed developers
– The key developers need to work on it full time.
• A clear license
– Some are very business friendly, others clear as mud.
• Commercial support
– Companies need more than email support from volunteers. Is there a
solid company employing people you can call?

SharePoint
• License fees are cost prohibitive
• Users must have MS Office 2007 to get full
functionality
• Hard to use for admin
• Limited to English out-of-the-box
• Can configure it to permanently delete an area and
all its files after a set period of inactivity
• Difficult to customize and maintain
• No product roadmap for the future
• Microsoft does not use MOSS 2007

CMS Watch on SharePoint
• The most value from enhanced Office integration
will come to those enterprises concurrently
upgrading to Office 2007. Customers on older
versions of Office may find their usability mileage
varies.
• As with the previous version, ease of installation
obscures difficulty in customization and ongoing
maintenance; administrators can easily get in over
their head.
• Microsoft has not issued clear plans for subsequent
releases.

CMS Watch on SharePoint cont.
• “Microsoft has tried to go ‘enterprise’ in the
impressive breadth of MOSS capabilities, but not
necessarily in their depth and scalability.”
– Tony Byrne, CMS Watch founder
• Microsoft’s all-important consulting channel will
need substantial time to absorb and learn the tool.
Experience with previous versions of SharePoint
suggests that this learning process will be
measured in years.

InfoWorld on Alfresco
Alfresco, a highly functional open source alternative
to commercial enterprise CMSes, is also simple to
install, use, and manage. Drag-and-drop eases
uploading and managing documents. Users employ
wizards to create rules that, for example, flow
documents or automatically perform conversion
tasks. The system includes advanced search and
threaded discussions, is scalable, and provides
portal integration.

CMS Wire on Alfresco
This newest offering from Alfresco is poised to
deliver “simple, standards-based, distributed search
encompassing not only multiple Alfresco
repositories but the Internet as well.
Complementing that capability is the company’s
content solution packaging mechanism, Alfresco
Module Packaging (AMP). Alfresco 2.0 also delivers
an integrated content platform with the production
release of Web Content Management and AMPenabled Records Management.”

CNET News.com on Alfresco
"Alfresco's use of the GPL license for its Community
Edition allows for potentially greater community
contributions due to license familiarity and
established standards," he said. At the same time,
Alfresco can continue "to focus on growing its
Enterprise Edition business under a commercial
license."

• Boise Cascade
– “Alfresco offered the functionality of other Enterprise
Content Management systems at a fraction of the cost.”
– “Alfresco’s ability to scale-out over a number of machines
further reduces the Total Cost of Ownership.”
• Myron Blaine – System Architect, Boise Cascade
• Knight Ridder Digital
– “We believe Alfresco’s ground breaking architecture
coupled with open source technologies will enable Knight
Ridder Digital to create a scalable, flexible Web Content
Management system that gives us great control over how
we access and present our content. That is serving realtime, re-purposeable, contributions to our web sites on an

– “We could clearly see the benefits of Alfresco over our existing
system. We now have the ability to manage our process and
workflows in ways we could only do after placing a call to our
developers”.
– “This represents a major opportunity to change and enhance the
way we work.”
• Geoff Pettifor – Director of Development, Swansea Housing
Association
• UK Defence Agency
– “Most staff are not prepared to learn a new interface to access a
repository/document management system. Hence, the system
needed to appear as a shared drive that could be simply
accessed via Windows Explorer and MS-Office through “dragand-drop” and “Save-As”

Quick Note (Stickies)
SiteScape's New ICEcorps Product
• "Liferay was an obvious choice for ICEcorps
because of its maturity and scalability," said Andy
Fox, SiteScape's Chief Technical Officer. "We are
excited about the opportunity to involve the Liferay
community in our project."
• Also, unlike other proprietary portal solutions,
Liferay Portal can run on any application server,
database server and operating system. "Liferay
Portal does not limit SiteScape's ICEcorps
audience to any particular technology stack," added
Fox.
