Today, there are over 10,000 users of Alfresco in Bizkaia, and the repository is used to manage and archive over 100 million documents.
"We saw value just 10 months after implementing Alfresco platform, and the feedback from users has been very positive," Garcia said. "Currently, Alfresco platform is a core part, meeting all the storage and treatment requirements of the images in our data collection, both from Java and Cobol applications. Alfresco platform is a powerful management technology using open standards with an unbeatable return on investment."
The move to Alfresco was part of the construction of a new, wider digital technological strategy for the government of Bizkaia. The goal was to simplify and standardize content management through digital transformation. The next step will be to enrich content by increasing the amount of metadata to improve searchability and make it easier to access documents through a unified framework.
In just two years, Lantik has already seen a huge cost savings and productivity has substantially increased, as users only need to use a single platform.
"We have obtained economic savings higher than 50% per year," Garcia said. "Our experience with Alfresco platform could not have been better. It has allowed us to do everything we wanted with a single tool and also fits with our strategy of using open-source business programs."
