Alfresco, who often appear to have a semi-detached take on the Digital Asset Management market yesterday released ‘Alfresco Team’ which is touted by them as a “Content Collaboration Platform” – or a DAM system to use an alternative term more familiar to readers of sites like this one. The basic specs look pretty good and it should present a decent challenge to the other open source DAM vendors, however, prospective Nuxeo customers in particular look to be the chief target of this release.
The features include:
- Eight different method of uploading assets (including mounted drives, email integration and SharePoint)
- Online file previews of Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, PDF, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Flash, image, video and audio files
- Version control and embedded metadata extraction
- Automated workflow and folder rules
- Real-time collaboration
The pricing is competitive and users can get started with a free edition that can handle five users.
