Alfresco Software Inc. announced that 100 percent of the Alfresco Enterprise Edition will be open source. The model commercial open source companies are using is to offer the same functionality across all product lines. This gives the customer the option of purchasing, not extra functionality, but support, consulting, integration and training. This approach enables the customer to get the benefit of open source in the short-term, low-risk trial with easy access to source code, product details and roadmap, and also in the long-term by having the flexibility to stay with enterprise support or move to a community model with no loss of functionality and no code change requirements. Alfresco offers two functionally similar product lines – Enterprise and Community. The Alfresco Enterprise Network offers: Certified Stacks; Maintenance, Updates and Patch Support; Customer Support – Problem Resolution, Compatibility and Migration Advice; Customer Portal – Information, Bug Tracking and Case Tracking; Performance Tuning Advice; and Indemnity and Warranty. http://www.alfresco.com
