Recognizing the evolving nature of the open source market, Appnovation, with the support of its partners Acquia, Alfresco and MuleSoft, has developed the Canopy Initiative, which is a more well-rounded approach to help enterprise level organizations adopt open source technologies into their business.

Technologies involved with the Canopy Initiative

Drupal is a community supported open-source content management system (CMS) and content management framework (CMF) written in PHP. Its uses include creating personal, corporate and government websites as well as blogs, forums and social communities. It can also be used for business collaboration and knowledge management.

Alfresco is the premier open source Enterprise Content Management system. With customers in all major industries including major brands such as Air Bus, KLM and Kaplan, Alfresco allows for the deployment of cost-effective and efficient ECM systems.

MuleSoft makes cloud and on-site integrations much more simple. It basically removes the complexity out of integrations and gives developers the ability to easily create high-performance, multi-protocol connections involving diverse and varied systems and/or services.

There’s a great market opportunity for connecting document management and structured editorial workflows with content, community and commerce applications for great digital experiences,” said Joe Wykes, vice president of global channels at Acquia. “Integrating Drupal with leading open source technologies like Alfresco and MuleSoft presents a tremendous opportunity for organizations that are looking to reduce costs and increase flexibility.
