Alfresco and Joomla Team Up

Dec 12, 2008

Alfresco Software, an open source alternative for enterprise content management, and Joomlatools, a software development and services company, announced an integration based on Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS). The Alfresco:Joomla! integration module was built using the draft CMIS REST API to allow organizations running Joomla-based web sites to access Alfresco’s open source content management repository. Users will be able to manage, preview, and track volumes of content and digital assets on collaborative Joomla web sites using Alfresco’s content library. Similarly Alfresco users will be able to search, publish, share, download, and edit content directly on Joomla sites. The proposed CMIS standard is currently being advanced by an OASIS technical committee and will enable anyone to develop content applications on open source Alfresco and deploy them on SharePoint, EMC, IBM, or OpenText.
