Hi -

Just curious - it's important for any "Enterprise Content Management" system to scale up to ... well, to the "Enterprise".

How does Afresco compare with high-end ECM systems like FileNet P8, which are capable of scaling up to 100s (or 1000s) of users, and millions of documents?

Hi!

I would be also interested in knowing the difference between the FileNet and Alfresco as I am presently working on FileNet P8 and FileNet IDM.

Thanks in advance :-)

Alfresco recently released its' repository benchmarks and proved to be the "fastest JCR repository". The results were based on a 10 million document repository.

We recently considered Alfresco for a customer with 225 million documents for 40,000 users. Which is a great benchmark to consider.

Filenet is more suitable for insurance and finance industries with its' strong workflow capabilities.

I do not have a comparison matrix for Filenet and Alfresco. Alfresco offers most of the features of Filenet as of today at very cheaper TCO.
