Alfresco’s Austin Adams: Centralized Platform Can Help Agencies Address ‘Content Chaos’

Austin Adams

Austin Adams, vice president of public sector at San Mateo, California-based open-source software provider Alfresco, has said government agencies should address “content chaos” through the adoption of a centralized platform designed to process and store documents.

Adams wrote that such a platform works to help government personnel access, share and collaborate on content as well as establish a business process that can provide employees a view on a document’s status throughout its lifecycle.

He also called on agencies to deploy a common platform designed for use in desktop and mobile environments and can support several applications.

“Using a common platform for numerous applications can drastically drive down acquisition and development time,” he added.

Adams also urged agencies to collaborate with “open-source vendors that natively support the flexibility, scalability, and agility found in the cloud.”
