This new partnership may prove to be picture perfect.
Kodak has teamed up with open source content management system Alfresco to offer businesses robust content and document management services.
Although more famous for being an imaging innovator, Kodak has delivered managed services and solutions to large enterprises and governments around the world for years. A lot of Kodak’s work focuses primarily on providing better usability and accessibility to data through scanning, storing and retrieving critical documents and information. Additionally, the company has helped governments capture and share hundreds of millions of documents. And with this new partnership, Kodak and Alfresco will aim to provide a stronger set of services and solutions than previously offered.
“This is the beginning of a strategic relationship that will differentiate both Kodak and Alfresco in the marketplace,” says Roberto Colangelo, Kodak’s General Manager for Worldwide Services. “By combining Alfresco’s industry leading enterprise content management systems with our own technology and capabilities, we will address the growing need for complex content and document solutions, serving customers in ways they never thought possible. We expect to have an immediate and long-lasting impact in the markets we serve.”
According to Colangelo, Kodak is moving beyond scanning to participate in more sophisticated content and document management services.
“The combination of Kodak’s brand paired with our trusted platform makes this an extremely valuable alliance for us,” says John Powell, CEO, Alfresco. “We are very excited to partner with Kodak to extend our services and software offerings on a global scale. We look forward to future collaboration in the cloud, mobile, and on-premise all working seamlessly together to meet Kodak’s growing content management needs.”
