Alfresco Digital Business Platform

A Better Way

The Alfresco Digital Business Platform puts your content where it’s needed most–at the fingertips of those who need it. Fast to deploy, highly scalable and fully integrated, this modern content services platform manages, protects and connects your most important information–putting content at its core, and at the heart of your digital transformation.


Take your Enterprise Content Management to the next level.

Digitize and streamline business processes with high-performance Business Process Management (BPM), including case management. Quickly and easily define and refine processes as operational needs change with visual process design, decision tables, and process analytics. Let business owners quickly modify processes, drive continuous improvement and speed up application development.



Unmatched simplicity and control to mitigate regulatory risk and strengthen compliance. Alfresco works invisibly in the background so that governance “just happens.” Automated records management and support for eDiscovery and legal hold strengthens compliance, decreases long-term storage costs, reduces corporate risk, and saves money.

Extend powerful search and content management across more than 60 leading content systems and applications—such as Documentum, OpenText and IBM FileNet—plus network file drives and email systems. Find and manage information faster. Help mitigate risk with enterprise-wide compliance. Avoid complex migrations with intelligent content migration.

Automatically enrich content and gain valuable insights with AI and Machine Learning (ML) services from Amazon Web Services. Extract intelligence to address specific business needs such as intelligent claims and intelligent document recognition to drive more informed decisions, faster.

Make better decisions based on real-time data. Gain insight into content, metadata, processes, and governance with developer and user-friendly contextual analytics, without the need for specialized business intelligence (BI) teams.

Find exactly the content you need with fast, powerful search features. Search document properties or full text and use instant search suggestions. Leverage advanced features like faceted search to power up your productivity and narrow down results. Scale indexing and performance to handle billions of documents. Extend search across the enterprise with federation capabilities to include 60+ content systems, business applications and storage locations.

Safeguard confidential corporate assets wherever they're accessed or stored with powerful security features. Apply granular permissions to users or groups, or to any folder or document in the repository with access control lists (ACL). For additional security, encrypt content or apply intelligent security classifications that comply to highly secure government requirements.

The Alfresco Digital Business Platform is built on an open source core with support for open standards and open APIs. The Alfresco Application Development Framework reduces time to value for true business agility. Add capabilities for specific business needs with extensions and open REST APIs. Integrate seamlessly with leading applications out of the box, so users can access content from within the applications they use to get their jobs done.
