As businesses globally struggle to control content sprawl, the explosion that comes from both human and machine generated unstructured content, enhancements within Alfresco Content Services 7.0 allow organizations to manage large content volumes at reduced costs. “More organizations are struggling with digital transformation initiatives because of the lack of control over unstructured content and an absence of skilled resources to modernize their technology infrastructure,” said John Phelan, EVP and Chief Product Officer at Hyland. “This latest release solves these challenges with improved scalability to manage the influx of unstructured content within an organization that is optimized for performance at scale.”

Furthermore, Hyland launched an early access program for Elasticsearch as an alternative search engine to Solr. John Phelan continued: “Introducing Elasticsearch demonstrates the speed and agility by which the team can present a new core service to the platform, and helps offer choice to our customers for an important service for every content solution.”

The release of the open source version of Alfresco Content Services 7.0 validates Hyland’s continued commitment to the values of open thinking and to our thriving open source developer community.
