I had a chance to talk with John Newton, CTO of Alfresco today at their booth on the exhibition floor. It was great to finally meet John in person and have a chat about my post Alfresco Adding Real Records Management To Their ECM Suite??? late last month. John confirmed that Alfresco plans to release a version of their ECM suite by the end of the year that will include records management capabilities that will comply with the DoD 5015.2 STD requirements.
This is significant!!!! It will be interesting to see if having an Open Source ECM solution that has DoD 5015.2 certified records management will have a dramatic effect on the adoption curve of Alfresco by regulated or government customers. I asked John if Alfresco was planning to take the Alfresco suite through the certification process and he said that Alfresco would rely on a partner to take on the logistics of taking the suite through the testing process.
