Recognizing a need in the marketplace to bring together Drupal, a dynamic content management system, with Alfresco, a robust back end repository for content, Appnovation created a set of tools and services to easily manage their integration.
Today, what started as integrating two leading open source technologies has now transformed into an initiative, led by Appnovation and supported by our partners, to enable open technologies in the enterprise environment. Integrating Drupal and Alfresco not only combines these two powerful platforms, but also aligns the organizations behind those technologies with each other and the goals and needs of the enterprise.

How Drupal & Alfresco Work Together
Communication between Alfresco and Drupal are easy and seamless.

- Content created in Drupal can also be pushed and replicated within the Alfresco repository. Webscripts grab the data and create the node from a preregistered model. Along with content, metadata is replicated across the two systems.
- Communication between Alfresco and Drupal are done using a custom RESTful API using JSON.
- Data is replicated across both systems and each platform functions as intended out of the box.
- Also integration using CMIS.
