ECM and Portal are two technologies that are meant to integrate but are often addressed as standalone technologies. What if you could have the best of both worlds?

Many customers are leveraging Alfresco and Liferay together to solve Enterprise-wide problems. Alfresco provides full ECM functionality, a single repository and a robust workflow engine. Liferay provides enterprise collaboration, along with social networking and enterprise portal and identity management.

Join Jim Zordani, VP of Sales at CIGNEX and Nitin Kadam, CIGNEX Presales as we address why and how customers are integrating the two solutions. When you combine open source, open standards and enterprise scalability you have a powerful solution that will solve real problems.

We will be walking through integration best practices and will share their first-hand experiences with customers that have leveraged the integrated solution.
