Content.gov 2011 – The Government and Open Source Content Management

Posted by on January 13, 2011

Alfresco is kicking off 2011 strong with Content.gov, a free, special one day event in downtown Washington DC focusing on open source content management in the government and public sector agencies. The event will be held on January 20th, 2011 at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center.

There’s been a long-time conception that government agencies are slow to adopt emerging technologies including open source products. However, in recent years, open source adoption has rapidly increased in the commercial sector due to a combination of factors, from the down economy and enterprises seeking cost saving alternatives, to the maturity of open source products finally proving themselves in areas of quality, security, and flexibility. The government, while slow to follow, are now beginning to realize the true benefits of open source software.

Content.gov 2011 will feature John Newton, Alfresco CTO & Founder, as the keynote speaker, followed by customer case studies delivered by actual customers and Alfresco implementation partners.

Rivet Logic will present a customer case study featuring a guest speaker from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). The presentation will cover how Rivet Logic helped NAS implement an open source Alfresco WCM solution that helped streamline operations, resulting in faster publishing cycles, increased productivity, richer site experience, and better accountability.

2011 Alfresco Lunch & Learn Series Introduces Social Content Management

Posted by on December 15, 2010

The holidays are upon us, but that’s not slowing Alfresco, or Rivet Logic, down. Alfresco has already scheduled its first Lunch and Learn series for 2011, taking place in January and February across major cities nationwide, and Rivet Logic is participating in three of them. The topic of this Lunch and Learn? Social Content Management.

The enterprise content management (ECM) market has undeniably evolved over the years. ECM products started incorporating collaboration features (i.e. blogs, wikis, forums, shared work spaces) when Web 2.0 technologies drove organizations to adopt Enterprise 2.0 to enhance collaboration in the work place. Now, with the boom of social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, enterprise content is becoming more social in nature. With millions of pieces of content being generated and circulated every day, ECM can’t stay the same.

So what does this new category of Social Content Management really mean, and how can Alfresco and Rivet Logic help? How can organizations take advantage of social business software, while still maintaining control of its content? Join us at one of the upcoming Lunch and Learn events to learn about these topics and find out why Gartner has identified Alfresco as a key player in this new space.

Rivet Logic will be hosting the following Lunch and Learn events:

Wed, Jan 19 – Los Angeles, CA
Thu, Jan 20 – Irvine, CA
Tue, Jan 25 – Raleigh, NC
