A strategic partnership announced today will significantly improve the email archiving and compliance capabilities of the popular Alfresco ECM. CIGNEX, a global Open Source services company, is teaming up with Opsera, the developers of OpsMailmanager, to meet growing demand for enterprise-class email storage and management in Alfresco.

By partnering with Opsera, CIGNEX is further extending its reach to enterprises looking to implement a scalable, fully-featured ECM, which is simple to use, deploy, maintain and support. Opsera provides deep expertise in Open Source software development for ECM and system monitoring and management.

OpsMailmanager enables enterprises to store and search for email messages and their attachments in an Alfresco repository. Leveraging open standards-based technologies, OpsMailmanager provides easy integration with all leading email clients including MS Outlook, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.

Paul Anthony, CEO of CIGNEX said: "We partnered with Opsera because their OpsMailmanager solution builds on both companies’ Alfresco expertise to provide an enterprise-grade email management platform to a wide range of industry sectors.

"We believe that the combination of our global delivery capability, Alfresco ECM and OpsMailmanager provides a compelling solution for comprehensive information management, at a fraction of the cost of alternative proprietary systems."

Michael Walton, CEO and Founder of Opsera said: "OpsMailmanager provides a secure and scalable solution to the challenge of sharing, managing and archiving email information in Alfresco ECM.

"By taking advantage of OpsMailmanager’s high performance and customisable architecture, CIGNEX reinforces its position as the world’s leading Alfresco deployment specialist. We look forward to closely working with them on OpsMailmanager implementations, product collaboration and other related Alfresco activities."
