This is the grant proposal for a Factom integration into a new product soon to be released by Alfresco, under grant proposal ID FACTOM-GRANT-BIF-003.

Sphereon is being asked by Alfresco, one of the largest providers of Document Management Systems by market share, to provide a blockchain solution for a completely new product they will launch at a big event soon. This solution runs on top of Amazon, which has been in close contact with Sphereon as well to provide Content services and blockchain services on top of Amazon. We have worked with the Amazon blockchain lead to make this a possibility. Although Sphereon was asked to do this, we included the Blockchain Innovation Foundation, as we feel some of the goals of the foundation fit rather well for this use case. BIF will develop the open-source integration into the new App of Alfresco, making a direct integration between Factom and Alfresco Content App possible. This will also allow us to provide Factom followers as an infrastructure solution on top of Amazon soon.
As required by document 152 that governs Factom grant round 2: This is the thread for grant proposal FACTOM-GRANT-BIF-003.
The review process starts at 2018-10-29 00:00, so please refrain from starting public review or questions before that time to give everybody an equal chance. If you notice clear errors in the proposal you can contact the author of the grant proposal directly.

This is a fantastic initiative and I applaud all involved. The reality is, this initiative risks not being funded this round because of the highly competitive nature of the current grant submissions which would be unfortunate.

I ask that those working on this grant please communicate internally to see if there's a lower number you can come back to the community with to increase the chance of this grant being funded.

If you can't reduce, I understand, but please let us know that. If you can and others do the same, it creates the opportunity for other projects to be funded as well.

Thank you.

BIF has sponsored 3/4 of this grant already. We are reviewing whether we can lower the price of 750 FCT. We do however believe that creating a fully open-source implementation of Factom into one of the major DMS systems that gets exposure on the largest Amazon event in the world is extremely good value for money. This also is a solution that is into some competition with Sphereon's commercial offerings btw. It shows we aren't only protecting an affiliated entity from BIF.
