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
