  • We’re tired of paying [pick your legacy portal/ECM vendor] for upgrades and add-ons.We spent millions of dollars on a home-grown solution and we still didn’t get what we wanted.Every time we want to make a change it costs a fortune.
  • Our current intranet looks only slightly better than Craigslist.Our employees are used to consumer tools like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter and want similar experiences inside the firewall.It’s easier to find something on Google than it is for me to find a critical document at my company.

  • We acquire a lot of companies—our intranet has to adapt to the new structure quickly.We have a large sales force. New sales programs often require significant changes in how we communicate to our distributed team.When I want to add a new feature I’m told it isn’t supported.Changes that seem simple require development and down-time.

    Drupal Overview
  • Drupal – Flexible Interface
    Drupal Interface
  • Alfresco – Enterprise Content Services
    Fast, flexible, modular user interface
    Presentation Tier
    Open, scalable repository, metadata, versioning, workflow
    ?
    Content Services Tier
    Core
    Multiple, disparate front-ends
    Multiple content repositories
    Enterprise Apps Tier
    Scripting language on the front-end and Java on the back-end is a proven pattern. Drupal provides the UI while Alfresco provides core content services.
    Many organizations have multiple front-ends that need to get to the same enterprise content store.
    Organizations may have multiple CMIS repositories, maybe from different vendors.

    What Can Drupal & Alfresco Do Together?
    Activision: Drupal + Alfresco Case Study
    How Does it Work?
    Q&A
  • How?
    Key Ingredients
    Acquia Drupal for community features, UI and WCM
    Alfresco for workflow and secure document management
    Drupal CMIS API module
    Drupal CMIS Alfresco module
    Any of the additional Drupal modules necessary to meet requirements
  • More about the integration module
    Open Source
    http://www.drupal.org/project/cmis_alfresco (GPLv2)
    100% CMIS
    Requires no install on the Alfresco tier
    Raw capabilities
    Persist web content in Alfresco

    Upload binary files into Alfresco via Drupal
    Attach binary files, created in Alfresco, to Drupal content

  • Implementation
    The CMIS module is an enabler, but there's still work you have to do...
    Find senior leadership support and other champions
    Create an adoption plan
    Design UI
    Determine integration points (SSO, search, LDAP, etc.)
    Create a security model
    Determine additional contributed/custom Drupal modules to meet requirements
    Create an Alfresco content model and decide on storage hierarchy
    Implement business processes as Alfresco workflows
