Google Docs integration with Alfresco

For those who were considering using Google Docs, but feel that it does not offer (at least not for the moment) any advanced document management or ECM feature, it seems that Google and Alfresco have some plan to work together:

See the technology preview here:  Google Docs integration with Alfresco

As far as I know, Alfresco is working with Google to integrate Alfresco into Google docs for those organizations and teams who want ECM-style functionality such as version control, workflow, etc.

It is not clear whether Google Docs will be simply used as a remote repository (this is what the demo shows) or if Alfresco solution could be embedded as a backend into Google OEM ….

It seems we will have more info in the next few days….

    Demo of integration with Google Docs (same as link above):

    [Alfresco recently announced a technology preview of integration between Google Docs and Alfresco. This integration, due to be release as part of Alfresco 3.3g, will allow users to ‘check out’ documents from the Alfresco repository to Google Docs. Users can make change, collaborating with colleagues, and then ‘check in’ the revised copy to Alfresco. Using Google Docs removes the need for users to download to their desktop, edit with MS Office tools and helps facilitates online, real-time collaboration.]
