July 16, 2009 - Packt and CIGNEX are pleased to announce a new book that guides readers to customize, use, and administer websites using the Alfresco CMS platform. Written by a team of four Content Management experts from CIGNEX, Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management Implementation gives users a clear understanding about how to integrate external applications such as Liferay Portal, Adobe Flex, iPhone, iGoogle, and Facebook to meet their Content Management needs.

Alfresco is one of the most popular Java-based Content Management System. Alfresco 3 is its upgraded version which includes Alfresco Surf, a new N-Tier Architecture, which delivers scalability and accommodates more users on existing hardware resources. Alfresco 3 offers true Enterprise Content Management (ECM) by providing an Open Source alternative to Microsoft SharePoint, Documentum, and Interwoven.

This book guides users through creating smart, collaborative content repositories and shows how to use Alfresco 3 to create more elegant document sharing, better collaborative working, and reliable automated workflow processes. The book explains how administrators can set up Alfresco 3 for multiple business units as a single-instance multi-tenant environment.

Readers will learn to work and co-ordinate with membership accounts, including LDAP integration and single sign-on. Using Alfresco 3, readers will be able to automate version tracking and share network folders. They will also be able to manage business documents with version control, library services, content organization, and advanced search. Though this book is not a developer guide, various examples in the book will help developers to extend Alfresco functionality and to integrate Alfresco with external systems.

This book is designed for system administrators, experienced users, and business owners who want to install and use Alfresco in their teams or businesses. It assumes a degree of technical confidence and does not require specialist system administration or developer skills to get a basic system up and running. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: book website.
