Alfresco 5.1 was released yesterday. As a premier partner, TSG received an early release to prepare our clients as well as certify our solutions. This post will share our quick thoughts on the new platform, changes in the new version, and our thoughts on how we are planning to take advantage of some of the new capabilities in our products.
TSG has had two recent clients deploy Alfresco 5. After stabilizing the environments to handle the proper production load, we gathered a list of tips and tricks that have helped improve performance for Alfresco 5 around transformation and Microsoft SQL Server. For clients familar with Alfresco 4, we have found making some small changes within client configurations in Alfresco 5 can result in a substantially improved performance. The remainder of this post will serve as a suggested checklist for consideration when deploying Alfresco 5.
While clients have multiple ways to ingest content attached to an email, more and more content is attached via links to cloud storage. Whether these links are Google, Box or others, one problem is how to ingest the email and content into the ECM repository without having to manually download the documents and add each document individually, a tedious and time consuming activity. This process can be even worse if instead of a link to a document, the email contains a link to a folder. This post will discus how TSG has added the capability to add this content simply and easily, consistent with email with file attachments.
