Cross-platform collaboration with Alfresco



The Alfresco collaboration tool lets you track documents, share content, and collaborate with team members – and it integrates nicely with Microsoft SharePoint.

Alfresco is an open source tool you can use to share web content, orchestrate workflows, manage documents, and collaborate in real time [1]. All of these features make Alfresco a suitable alternative for Microsoft's popular SharePoint collaboration system. This article provides a brief tour of Alfresco and shows how you can get started with content sharing and collaboration.


Alfresco comes in two flavors: the community version, which is free to download [2], and a commercial cloud application that lets you pay as you go. This article focuses on the free version. For more information on the commercial, enterprise version, see the Alfresco website [3].

You can download the Alfresco community edition as a complete package, along with the web server and the database. To avoid incompatibilities with port assignments, make sure you don't already have a web server running on the system, or else take the necessary steps to ensure the ports don't clash.
