I would like to know how a CMS, for example, Alfresco fits into the Enterprise Information Systems context and interoperates with other systems.
In particular, what sort of interfaces (direct access to the data, messaging, services,�) other applications can use to access and use the content managed by the CMS.

Hi Edvins Reisons,

CMS like Alfresco are fit for enterprises due to the following reasons:

1. Wide range of solutions for Enterprise

Alfresco offers not only document management, but also Records Management, Web Content Management, Collaboration etc solutions for the large enterprises.

2. Enterprise level scalability

One of the critical requirements for any CMS is scalability. Alfresco is tested with million of documents/content with thousands of users.

3. Interoperability and Integrations with existing systems

Alfresco out of the box offers wide range of integration points including WebDAV, Web Services, CIFS, FTP, HTTP etc. Using web services any application can connect with the Alfresco's repository.
