By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Alfresco Software, the leading open-source provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, recently announced a major advancement in the integration of content, people and process. Through updates to both Alfresco One and Alfresco Activiti, Alfresco is providing an open approach to meeting a company's digital transformation goals by delivering the flexibility they need to meet evolving business process requirements as well as increasing the value from how content is managed within their organization."ECM and BPM are converging into a market we refer to as PCM [Process and Collaboration Management]. Rival vendors vying for share in this new market will be compelled to prove how they can help their customers and prospects run their businesses better through process improvements, enhanced collaboration, and easier ways to exploit content and media," 451 Research Analyst Carl Lehmann wrote in a recent report. "Alfresco's evolving business strategy is set up to do just that."Leading-edge companies will benefit from tight integration of ECM and BPM solutions that were designed and built to work together. For example, processing a loan application for a financial services company involves managing multiple documents from applicants as well as internally created files - all part of a loan-approval process. The Alfresco integrated solution brings together process and content into a single solution that simplifies the workflow and improves customer service. It also captures approval flows and relevant content to help a company address its compliance requirements."Because every piece of content is tied to a business process and vice versa, an integrated content management and business process solution can deliver great value to enterprise and government. Alfresco's modern and open approach to these solutions has always recognized this critical interdependency," Alfresco provides modern enterprise content management (ECM) and business process management (BPM) software built on open standards that enables organizations to unlock the power of their business-critical content. With the controls that IT demands and the simplicity that end users love, Alfresco's open source technology enables global organizations to collaborate more effectively across cloud, hybrid and on-premise environments. Innovating at the intersection of content, collaboration and business process, Alfresco's software manages over seven billion documents, powering the daily tasks of more than 11 million users worldwide.
