Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-30) Survey Cloud-Based Document Interop Solutions
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2015 17:28:35 GMT


Peter Kelly commented on COR-30:

On the topic of cloud - and this might be somewhat different due what you had in mind for
this issue, but anyway - I think there's a lot of potential for us to promote Corinthia (particularly
with the editor, running in-browser) as an open source alternative to Google Docs and similar
web apps.

One of the main problems with the current web-based editors like Google Docs is that they're
hosted on the public Internet. This is a major security concern, due to the well-known potential
of such services to be compromised. For organisations that want a web-based app but don't
their data hosted externally to their network, the ability to host it internally within the
organisation's own network would, I think, be quite attractive. At to that the fact that it's
open source - and you have two major benefits that you can't get from Google et. al.

There is are also many proprietary and open source content management systems which are often
deployed on internal networks but lack built-in editing capabilities, and integration with
Corinthia could be attractive to some of those as well.
