About this blog



I have been working as IT Project Manager and ECM architect since 11 years, for several big french companies.

Since the beginning of my career, I’m focusing on ECM systems (Portal, Document Management, Collaboration)…working hard trying to deliver project on-time and on-budget…

In 2007 (I would have liked to have discovered it earlier !), I have discovered Alfresco, and me and my team have started a large scale deployment for a worldwide industrial company (Saint-Gobain).

After nearly three years working with Alfresco, I’m so conviced it is one of the best content management system that I have decided it was time to create a new firm, called Alfstore, heavily-focused on Alfresco.

The main goal of Alfstore will be to help companies get the most out of their data (documents, web content, rich media, or legal records) by leveraging Alfresco.

Another major event in 2010, is the release of CMIS as a standard. I’m also sure CMIS will evolves from a promising specification to an established and important standard. Most of our software components will be based on CMIS.

So the purpose of this blog is to share my experience about these technologies (Alfresco, Share, CMIS, open source), discuss about tips & tricks, and get your feedback…

    Hi, I am looking for an alternative to using Quickr for document management for WebSphere Portal 6.1.5, java 1.5. We previously used portal document manager. Does the Alfresco portlet allow you to search within the content of the documents? Can a jsr-286 portlet be installed on the same portal that has jsr-168 portlets installed? Thanks, Carrie

      Hello Carrie,

      – Yes our Alfresco Portlet allow to search within the content of the document. Search request are managed by the search engine embedded in Alfresco (Lucene), which is working very well for full text search. Search results are then displayed in the Portlet.
      – If you are using WebSphere Portal 6.1.5, then it is a JSR-286 portal (it supports both JSR-168 and JSR-286). So yes our Portlet can run on your Portal. Our Portlet has been tested with WPS 6.1, and is compliant with all WPS 6.x and higher release.

      I can confirm that Alfresco, combined with our Alfresco Portlet is a very good alternative to using Quickr. The Alfresco solution is made for document management, so it will offer much more DM feature than Quickr (easy security management, versioning, preview, etc, etc). Alfresco also provides collaborative features (like project management, blog, wiki, discussion, calendar, etc).

      Please let me know if you need more information,
