  5. 5. State of the ArtThursday, 7 February 13
  6. 6. Signature Scenarios: Medieval • Documents are: • Printed • Signed • Delivered to “scan” group • Scanned • This means: • Paper is used (maybe lost) • No control where to upload/download documents - document are then misplaced • Signature is just a graphic - so can be ‘photoshopped’Alfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  7. 7. Signature Scenarios: 3rd party • Documents are: • Sent between systems • This means: • Users are notified in some way - e.g emails for sign/review • Users see (and work with) two different systems, Therefore: • Not fully integrated • Notification method may not work • Digital duplication of documents • Sign App will keep a signed copy!Alfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  8. 8. Signature Scenarios • Companies generate: • Physical copies and a lot of risks in the process if done through manual signatures • Digital copies and technical risks if integration is done out of the ECM scope • But ECM solutions do not bring Digital Signature features! • So, how do we get an “In ECM scope” integration of Digital Signatures? + + =Alfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13

  11. 11. Architecture : A very simple overview • Users access Share • When click on Sign, SWA app is opened • When finished, Share gets the control again • Smooth transition inside Dialog • Alfresco access SWA • Requests information of the signature fields • Share requests Alfresco • Information about the status of documents • Provides useful information to UsersAlfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  12. 12. Architecture • Wrapped as an Alfresco service • SOA via webscripts • Custom Sign Action • Full Alfresco Share integration • Custom Sign Workflows • Signature process as a dialog • Custom Validate Action • Alfresco Share focus is never lost • Check status of documents signed out of Alfresco • Custom Share elements • Custom Document status • Evaluators • Signed, partially signed, not • Indicators signed • Document Details • Operations in background • Not compromise performanceAlfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  13. 13. Architecture • CoSign configuration Dashlet • Scalable • Signature Profiles • Alfresco cluster support • Multiple configuration options • Cache to manage profiles • Accessible via Admin Console • Fast access • Allows access to manage profiles • Shared access • User/Groups • Smooth and decoupled integration • Mimetypes • If Alfresco does not reach WSA, Alfresco keeps working! • Content types • Repository/Site LocationAlfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  14. 14. Workflows • Sign with CoSign action included into workflows • As easy as to define an ‘Approve’ one • Example Workflows: • Sign Simple • Sign, Review and Approve • Sequential Sign • Parallel Sign • Workflow sign task can be mapped to concrete signature fields • E.g. user1 signs field1Alfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
  15. 15. Advantages • Cost savings are very high • Won’t need paper anymore! • Mitigate risks and losses • ECM focus is not lost • Users won’t think they are moving between applications • Adaptable to any scenario • Flexible configuration • Alfresco Share fully integratedAlfresco ArchitectureThursday, 7 February 13
