SpikeSource Updates ECM Solution SpikeIgnited


SpikeSource, a provider of packaged and maintained open source solutions, today released a new SpikeIgnited™ version of the Alfresco Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution. This new SpikeIgnited version of Alfresco, based on Alfresco Enterprise Edition, is SpikeSource’s second solution released this quarter that has been tested and certified for Microsoft Windows Server.

ebizQ received the following:

Alfresco SpikeIgnited has been tested, integrated and certified on both Windows and Linux using the company's proven SpikeIgnite platform. Through the SpikeIgnite platform, SpikeSource delivers fully tuned and optimized solutions that are ready for the enterprise, yet priced to be attractive to smaller companies. Solutions are integrated and packaged with the components they depend on, and then built and tested on an automated framework that includes over 300,000 nightly tests. Additionally, the SpikeNet™ update service ensures that all software is continuously monitored for software, security and operational updates.

"Our recent Open Source Barometer Survey (http://www.opensourcebarometer.org) shows there is an increasing trend for organizations to adopt a mixed stack, combining both open source and proprietary software, to enable use of best of breed components. The survey also showed that Windows is increasingly popular in testing and evaluation because it is the operating system on most desktops," said Dr. Ian Howells, CMO, Alfresco Software Inc. "Alfresco and SpikeSource are working together to give organizations the choices they demand in today's blended environment of open source and proprietary applications."

Alfresco is the leading open source alternative for Enterprise Content Management, providing document management, collaboration, records management, knowledge management, Web content management and imaging. With major worldwide adoption, Alfresco now has more than 300 customers and the community version of Alfresco's open source ECM has been downloaded almost 700,000 times.

"Enterprises are increasingly integrating Microsoft and open source software to gain the best mix of cost-efficiency and business-critical performance," said Anthony Gold, Vice President and General Manager, Open Source Business, Unisys. "A powerful open source tool such as the SpikeIgnited version of Alfresco for the Microsoft Windows Server environment would surely broaden the options in enterprise content management – a burgeoning area for enterprise applications."

"The number of organizations taking advantage of open source applications on Windows Server is greatly increasing," said Bill Hilf, General Manager of Platform Strategy at Microsoft Corp. "Successful companies continue to find ways to take advantage of the Microsoft platform and tools to meet their growing business needs. We are delighted that SpikeSource is addressing this need by supporting Alfresco and other leading open source applications on the Microsoft platform, and we see value for our mutual customers and for developers."
