Multiple Share-based applications on the same back-end Alfresco repository: pitfalls and best practices
Hans De Bal (Alfresco Consultant at Amplexor) will present an expert session at BeeCon covering the pitfalls and best practices in multiple Share-based applications on the same back-end Alfresco repository.
Organizations often wish to use Alfresco as the back-end repository for a number of diverse business applications. However straightforward this requirement is, the technical implementation is often a challenge since these applications all require specific front-end customizations. When deploying multiple customized Share front-end for these business applications, some aspects such as workflows, dashboards, etc. cannot be easily separated.
One option is building your front-end applications from scratch, but that ignores the wealth of functionality that is available in Share out-of-the-box. Moreover, some organizations already use Share as a front-end and would like to keep a consistent experience for their users.
In this talk we will share our experience on using multiple customized Share instances as business application front-end on the same Alfresco repository.
