Enterprise CMS specialist Alfresco has kicked off its 2013 European Summit in Barcelona by announcing the launch of Alfresco Test Drive.
The free AWS-powered offering is designed as a trial mechanism for potential Alfresco users, allowing them to register for and launch private demonstration server environments, dubbed 'Test Drive Labs.'
Interested parties can then explore key Alfresco solutions and features, potentially ahead of showcasing them to co-workers or relevant decision makers.
Alfresco Test Drives also offers a step-by-step walkthrough for first-time users, and each trial period is valid for up to four, three hour sessions.
Initially, the launch will feature five solutions from Alfresco and its partners: the company's flagship software, Alfresco One Enterprise Edition, as well as Software Crafter Web Experience Management by Crafter Software, Digital Media Annotator by Ixxus, HPI Controlled Document Solution by Technology Services Group and ZSign Electronic Signatures by Zia Consulting.
To get rolling today, simply visit the newly unveiled Alfresco Test Drive website and follow the appropriate prompts.
The start of Alfresco Summit 2013, which runs from 4-7 November, is perhaps an unsurprising time for the company to launch a new offering, with company CTO and founder John Newton hinting to us that further developments could also be previewed over the coming days.
"[The Summit] is our opportunity to say where we're going. [and] what's next. We're going to talk about the stuff that's obvious, but also give a glimpse at what we're going to be doing in the future," Newton revealed in conversation with ITProPortal last week.
