Appnovation Technologies Congratulates Acquia and Alfresco on new Partnership

With the announcement of the new Acquia Alfresco Partnership, Appnovation looks to the future of the Open Source Initiative and Drupal Alfresco Integration.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and LONDON, UK (June 19, 2013) – Appnovation Technologies is pleased to announce its support, and offer congratulations, for the new partnership between Acquia and Alfresco made public on June 18th. As the highest-level partners of both organizations, Appnovation pioneered the integration of Drupal and Alfresco ( as part of the initial osCaddie (formerly Canopy) solution.  The success of the osCaddie solution highlights how an integrated open source solution is the answer to solving complex IT and content challenges. Over time, osCaddie ( expanded beyond a technology solution and has become an initiative to help organizations implement integrated open source systems. To further advance the open source ecosystem, osCaddie has included support for 2 other open source technologies: MuleSoft and Hortonworks Hadoop. They key of the initiative is more than simply integrating top open source technologies, but getting the organizations behind those technologies to align as well. Through the initiative, Appnovation provides implementation services, code libraries, tools and best practices around open source systems integration.

“We are glad to see Acquia and Alfresco moving closer together with this new partnership and look forward to working with them to assist progressive organizations like Mercy Health and The International Council on Systems Engineering with their web applications and open source integration needs,” said Appnovation CEO, Arnold Leung. He went on to say, “Our recent webinar ( case study on Drupal Alfresco integration with Mercy Health demonstrates just how powerful these two technologies can be when combined together.”

osCaddie, which was created in 2009, started with integrating the highly scalable website development tool (Drupal) with a proven open source document repository application (Alfresco). This Drupal Alfresco integrated solution, was recognized and supported by both Acquia and Alfresco, even winning Alfresco’s “2012 Partner Solution of Year” award. Today, osCaddie has become an initiative moving beyond integrating only Drupal and Alfresco, to now include Mule ESB for middleware, HTML5-based frameworks for mobile and cross-platform needs and Hadoop/MongoDB for Big Data/business intelligence.
