Their website suggests it's bleeding edge and for non-critical environments, whereas 'Alfresco Enterprise' is production ready.

Re: Alfresco Community????

Community edition for production? No.

Oh, I'm sure of that. Not at my workplace though. Management is pretty
strict about things being on proper support agreements. Probably something
to do with patients lives being at stake.

Well, when they decide to stop charging $15,000 or more a year to use it
I might consider it. 😛

Maybe what I should have asked is what document management system (not
groupwise) exist that doesn't cost $15,000 a year, integrates with
Microsoft Office, has a web interface, and isn't sharepoint?

I've read online that many people are using the community version in
production. Of course that's all it says. No real usage information.

True but at companies lacking an IT budget capable of having said
support agreements, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

For the record I tried at one time to buy Alfresco Enterprise. However,
the problem I ran into was the company was completely unwilling to spend
between $15k and $20k a year for document management. All of our other
software products combined is slightly over that a year.

I've found other companies that are slightly cheaper, but still out of
my price range. Do I really want to go with 'community' version over
enterprise version? No, not really. However, as Patrick has put it, the
money just doesn't exist.

Right now we save all our documents to local hard drives or incoherently
to the server. I've worked to remedy this problem in many ways. Sadly,
trying to get people to file stuff under a structured folder system just
doesn't work.

For those of you with big budgets buying the Enterprise stuff is the
thing to do. For me and my razor thin budget its community based or
nothing most of the time.

www.nuxeo.com.

Real Open Source, that is, one source tree for free and paid
versions. That is, you pay for support, not software.
And a release is supposed to be the same for free and paying
users.

I've tried Nuxeo. I find it much harder to use and setup than Alfresco.

I've been there too. Some of the most imaginative and creative solutions are born out of shoe-string situations. As long as your management understand the potential limits I doubt there would be anything wrong with the community version.
