Meet Aragon Transform ’19 Sponsor Alfresco
by Calvin Smith
We would like to introduce you to Alfresco, an Aragon Transform 2019 Gold Sponsor.
A commercial, open source software company that provides simply a better way for people to work, Alfresco is ensuring people have the right information they need, and exactly when they need it most.
We recently had the opportunity to ask Alfresco CMO Jennifer Smith five questions, including what transformation in 2020 means to her, and why Alfresco is proud to sponsor Aragon Transform 2019.
1.Why are you proud to work at Alfresco?
Because we are focused on customer success! We have so many great examples of helping customers turn content chaos into real business value—whether that’s creating internal efficiencies to get the right content to the right people or developing new revenue streams with new customer offerings.
While for many vendors Cloud is still a buzz word, but we have been cloud-first for several years now. Combine that with our open source culture, and we have an amazing foundation from which to innovate. Every day, brilliant minds are creating new and exciting products and services.
2. What is something Alfresco is doing right now that you’re really excited about?
Offering process, content, and governance services together to make a bigger impact. Putting all of that in the cloud as a service to gain greater scale and cost efficiencies. Adding AI and machine learning to bring intelligence to data that offers new insights. Content at rest costs you money, but content in motion makes you money. I’m excited to see Alfresco take a leadership position in this area.
3. What does transformation, in 2020, mean to you?
Transformation is the ability to build digital operations that simplify daily work and deliver exceptional employee and customer experiences. For example, you can eliminate the monotonous and timely process of a mortgage application through an optimized customer journey. It’s surprising how many companies are not realizing their full competitive advantages through innovative customer applications and seamless processes simply because they’re still operating within legacy systems. We’re working to get these organizations to the cloud faster, with less risk, so they can start utilizing the agility and capabilities the cloud offers. Ultimately, technology is about making our lives easier—at home and in business. That’s real transformation.
4. Why are you proud to sponsor Aragon Transform 2019?
Aragon Transform is a prestigious event for our industry that we’re incredibly proud to be a part of. It’s a rare opportunity to meet with our industry peers and discuss the market opportunities. For Alfresco, we rely on Aragon’s views because they have a rich history and proven cutting-edge vision for the enterprise content management market.
5. What is one app you can’t live without?
It’s hard to name just one. I rely on my smartphone apps to help with everything from grocery shopping to keeping up to date with the latest technology news to monitoring where my kids are! One that I use every single week is my grocery delivery app—it’s hard to overstate the convenience of being able to fill my grocery cart while I’m miles away at a conference. I’m looking forward to these apps and all of the data becoming more connected in the future.
Aragon would like to thank Jennifer Smith and the entire team at Alfresco for their support of Aragon Transform 2019.
