SAN MATEO, Calif. -- October 6, 2017

Alfresco Software, a leading open source provider of enterprise content
management and process automation, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has
named Alfresco a Challenger in its October 2017 Magic Quadrant for Content
Services Platforms, based on its ability to execute and completeness of
vision. 2017 marks the second year in a row that Gartner has placed Alfresco
as a Challenger in the evolving Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market.

“We believe being recognized as a Challenger in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant
for Content Services Platforms is validation of Alfresco’s ongoing innovation
and execution in the rapidly evolving content services market,” said Thomas
DeMeo, vice president of product management at Alfresco. “Alfresco’s Digital
Business Platform is a great fit for organizations that are looking to
differentiate themselves by delivering engaging customer experiences at scale.
For organizations with digital transformation initiatives, our open source
roots and transparent approach are appealing to developers, content
professionals and architects alike.

“We have expanded our technology partnerships to advance differentiation and
innovation, including being the first content services provider on Amazon to
launch an Alfresco instance with an Amazon Web Services Quick Start. By
providing an extensive set of open APIs, developer tools and cloud-ready
deployments, we build a level of agility, customer engagement and loyalty that
is fundamentally different than many of our competitors,” added DeMeo.

“Gartner's new definition for this market is as follows: A content services
platform is a set of services and microservices, embodied either as an
integrated product suite or as separate applications that share common APIs
and repositories, to exploit diverse content types and to serve multiple
constituencies and numerous use cases across an organization.” Alfresco’s
cloud-ready and developer-friendly open source software powers the daily work
of millions of people, addressing the unique needs of financial services,
healthcare, insurance, government, manufacturing, and publishing companies, in
countries around the world.

Alfresco’s inclusion to the Magic Quadrant was based on Gartner’s evaluation
of Alfresco’s enterprise-wide capabilities and vertical use cases. The full
