CARA vs Alfresco

Alfresco was developed by the same team behind the Documentum platform, and as such shares much in common in the legacy approach to content and data management.

CARA was rebuilt from the ground up as a standalone cloud-first application, with modern design principles, use of fast database and indexing technology (think Google speeds rather than traditional content management systems) and a focus on providing a tailored user experience in a highly configurable but compliant way to end users of differing profiles.

Rather than a one-size fits all (typically lowest common denominator) approach, CARA allows you to set up a series of interconnected data / document sets, with business processes taking you through your daily work with all the information to support your task, just a click away.

This enables us to serve the highly regulated use cases alongside the informal enterprise content management needs equally easily.

Ask us for a demo or access to our Cloud Sandbox to see how we can provide value above other systems such as Alfresco.
