CIGNEX, the world's leading provider of Enterprise Open Source solutions, and Alfresco, the world’s leading Open Source alternative for Enterprise Content Management (ECM), are hosting Lunch & Learn seminars across Cleveland (25th Jan), Palo Alto (26th Jan), Minneapolis (2nd Feb) and Atlanta (3rd Feb) to highlight the need for ’Social Content Management’.

Amit Babaria, President – Americas & EVP – Sales & Marketing of CIGNEX commented, “With increased proliferation of social media tools such as Facebook, Linked In and Twitter in our daily lives, there was a definitive need for Enterprise Content Management to evolve to take advantage of the Social Business Software while maintaining control over the content. In a fast evolving world of social media, Social Content Management can add the much needed muscle to the benefits of the regular Content Management systems.”

The seminars are aimed at helping enterprises to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their content management solutions while providing a future-proof roadmap using Open Source and Open Standards.

Join CIGNEX and Alfresco for a free 2-hour event to learn more about what social might mean to your content management strategy. Alfresco's Open Source content management platform was designed to be a flexible foundation for rich content management solutions. Gartner has also identified Alfresco as a key player in the new space of Social Content Management.
