  • Alfresco Software has acquired pernexas, a provider of connectors for seamlessly integrating the Alfresco Digital Business Platform with SAP NetWeaver®, SAP S/4 HANA®, and SAP Fiori®!

    The acquisition strengthens Alfresco’s market leadership position in the enterprise content management market and provides customers with fully-certified, native integration with line-of-business SAP applications. Furthermore, SAP customers are now able to enhance their digital operations using content, process and governance services and derive greater value from their enterprise resource planning (ERP) investment.

    Customers can benefit from a seamless connection between SAP and Alfresco, providing an unprecedented level of control and visibility of the unstructured information that always accompanies the structured data that SAP handles so well. Users can take advantage of these capabilities without leaving the applications with which they are familiar, meaning user adoption is easy and frictionless.
