LONDON, September 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment Solutions for the Enterprise, and Alfresco, the leading open source alternative for enterprise social content management, today unveiled an integration enabling the deployment of its flagship content enrichment platform Luxid® to Alfresco's open source content management solutions.

Based on patented, award-winning TEMIS technology, Luxid® is a powerful and scalable content enrichment solution that automatically extracts meaningful information (topics, entities, facts, sentiments, categories) from documents. When deployed on Alfresco Enterprise, Luxid® can seamlessly access documents to generate rich metadata and complete the embedded Apache Tika™'s metadata detection and extraction with the power of semantic analysis. Once this semantic metadata has been extracted by Luxid®, it can be leveraged throughout Alfresco Enterprise, to enrich search facets, recommend related content, link to enterprise knowledge bases, feed Business Intelligence dashboards or trigger business workflows.

"Alfresco sees tremendous value in enabling customers to explore valuable content with Luxid®. In teaming with TEMIS, we are demonstrating the value of an open source solution for ease of integration", said John Powell, President and CEO of Alfresco. "Given the recent changes in the proprietary content market (Fast acquired by Microsoft, Autonomy by HP, I2 by IBM) we are seeing increasing numbers of customers demanding open solutions as this development with TEMIS exemplifies."

"The next-generation CMS will be semantic or it will not be at all", said Eric Brégand, CEO of TEMIS. "We are thrilled to join forces with Alfresco to bring the power of semantics to all Alfresco Enterprise users."

The benefits of this Luxid®-Alfresco integration can be felt enterprise-wide, and most notably by:

  • Making end-user access to relevant content both faster and more effective, bringing productivity and insight to all decision-making and innovation processes,
  • Alleviating the need fortime-consuming, manual metadata contribution,
  • Helping Content Management and Information Management teams optimize their content management, archival and distribution decisions and deal with the growing mass of available content.

The joint integration of Luxid® for Alfresco Enterprise is available now through TEMIS and its network of partners and system integrators.
