CIGNEX today launched its fourth book on Alfresco - ‘Alfresco Share’. Alfresco Share is a comprehensive guide for Business users and Content managers who can leverage dynamic site generation capabilities of Alfresco Share for better participation amongst enterprise personnel. This book focuses on business needs rather than technical syntax and builds a case study for an easier and practical understanding of Alfresco Share.

Alfresco Share is authored by the team of Amita Bhandari, Pallika Majmudar & Vinita Choudhary who are Senior Consultants at CIGNEX. This team is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and has two more books on Alfresco to their credit.

Alfresco Share is a modern, browser-based platform for social content management and collaboration. It is more scalable and open than Microsoft SharePoint and runs on an Open Source stack. Alfresco Share leverages the Alfresco repository to provide content services and utilizes the Alfresco Surf Platform to provide the underlying presentation framework.

This book aims to educate its readers about how to create and manage a site for collaboration within the team. It elaborates upon the Alfresco Share architecture, its administration in terms of User management, defining roles and accesses. Using collaboration features like Wikis, blogs, data lists, calendar links and discussions, it details out ways for managing a Share site. Readers will also get acquainted with document management through Document library and implementing workflows to automate the business process. The Alfresco Share deployment guidelines highlight the enablement of a shortened development cycle, while making the best use of collaborative features.

“For Business users and Content managers considering to implement a collaboration strategy for their enterprise, this first ever book on Alfresco Share is a must have. CIGNEX is committed to provide value to its customers. This is our contribution to bring the platform closer to the business users and enable them to use it in production even without strong programing and technical background,” said Munwar Shariff, CTO, CIGNEX. He added, “We sincerely thank our publishers - Packt Publishers, for their continued support towards the release of this book”
