The City and County of Denver located in Colorado has a population of over 600,000 people and is the 21st largest city in the United States. It has a Mayor form of government and employs more than 10,000 people with an operating budget of $1 billion.
As a result of the decentralized IT environment, Denver acquired 14 separate document management systems, including EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint. This required Technology Services to maintain multiple systems, which was both costly and time consuming. Document sharing was also burdensome. In addition, scanned document applications, such as the City’s contract and financial records application, were difficult to use and did not provide the required security and auditing functionality.
Denver needed to implement one centralized document management system that could serve as a platform for all its document and content applications and they chose Alfresco.
“We are extremely excited to leverage Alfresco as the document management platform for our City. Alfresco’s support for open standards, flexible architecture, rich functionality and low cost means that we can begin to standardize on one ECM system while being mindful of budgetary constraints.” Chuck Fredrick, Director, Enterprise Applications for the City of Denver.
