Drupal and Alfresco, a Match Made in Content Heaven

Why partner Drupal with Alfresco? Because the two systems complement each other's strengths as content creators and managers. Drupal provides a rapid-development framework on the front-end while Alfresco provides an enterprise-level document management repository on the back-end. Different Drupal sites can share a versioned repository of images, files, and media assets that is managed by Alfresco. These assets can be managed with version control, library services, and content organization. Other benefits include automating business process with advanced workflow controls. Since both products are open-source, clients get the benefits of a growing base of developers, users, and institutions investing in these systems.

What Alfresco Provides Drupal Users with:

  • A robust and powerful content management repository with advanced ‘back-end’ capabilities.

  • Comprehensive collaboration functionality to support the content authoring and approval process ensuring that only controlled and compliant content is published.

  • CMIS 1.0 Compliance – enabling Drupal users to access and re-use legacy content in multiple repositories regardless of source.

  • Proven scalability on the internet for large-scale social sites.
