               Open Source Evaluation Factors
           • A thriving community
              – A handful of lead developers, a large body of contributors, and a
                substantial--or at least motivated--user group offering ideas.
           • Disruptive goals
              – Does something notably better than commercial code. Free isn't
                enough.
           • Documentation
              – What good's a project that can't be implemented by those outside its
                development?
           • Employed developers
              – The key developers need to work on it full time.
           • A clear license
              – Some are very business friendly, others clear as mud.
           • Commercial support
              – Companies need more than email support from volunteers. Is there a
                solid company employing people you can call?

                             SharePoint
           • License fees are cost prohibitive
           • Users must have MS Office 2007 to get full
             functionality
           • Hard to use for admin
           • Limited to English out-of-the-box
           • Can configure it to permanently delete an area and
             all its files after a set period of inactivity
           • Difficult to customize and maintain
           • No product roadmap for the future
           • Microsoft does not use MOSS 2007

           • The most value from enhanced Office integration
             will come to those enterprises concurrently
             upgrading to Office 2007. Customers on older
             versions of Office may find their usability mileage
             varies.
           • As with the previous version, ease of installation
             obscures difficulty in customization and ongoing
             maintenance; administrators can easily get in over
             their head.
           • Microsoft has not issued clear plans for subsequent
             releases.

           • ―Microsoft has tried to go ‗enterprise‘ in the
             impressive breadth of MOSS capabilities, but not
             necessarily in their depth and scalability.‖
              – Tony Byrne, CMS Watch founder


           • Microsoft‘s all-important consulting channel will
             need substantial time to absorb and learn the tool.
             Experience with previous versions of SharePoint
             suggests that this learning process will be
             measured in years.

                  InfoWorld on Alfresco
           Alfresco, a highly functional open source alternative
           to commercial enterprise CMSes, is also simple to
           install, use, and manage. Drag-and-drop eases
           uploading and managing documents. Users employ
           wizards to create rules that, for example, flow
           documents or automatically perform conversion
           tasks. The system includes advanced search and
           threaded discussions, is scalable, and provides
           portal integration.

           This newest offering from Alfresco is poised to
           deliver ―simple, standards-based, distributed search
           encompassing not only multiple Alfresco
           repositories but the Internet as well.
           Complementing that capability is the company‘s
           content solution packaging mechanism, Alfresco
           Module Packaging (AMP). Alfresco 2.0 also
           delivers an integrated content platform with the
           production release of Web Content Management
           and AMP-enabled Records Management.‖

           "Alfresco's use of the GPL license for its Community
            Edition allows for potentially greater community
            contributions due to license familiarity and
            established standards," he said. At the same time,
            Alfresco can continue "to focus on growing its
            Enterprise Edition business under a commercial
            license."

             SiteScape's New ICEcorps Product
           • "Liferay was an obvious choice for ICEcorps
             because of its maturity and scalability," said Andy
             Fox, SiteScape's Chief Technical Officer. "We are
             excited about the opportunity to involve the Liferay
             community in our project."
           • Also, unlike other proprietary portal solutions,
             Liferay Portal can run on any application server,
             database server and operating system. "Liferay
             Portal does not limit SiteScape's ICEcorps
             audience to any particular technology stack," added
             Fox.
