CMIS, or Content Management Interoperability Services, was created to avoid the difficulties organizations face when integrating content with proprietary, partner and 3rd party repositories. CMIS uses REST or web services as a unifying technology to allow content repositories to exchange information with any web services-enabled repository. Once adopted by the industry, it will allow any organization to reach across technological borders, retrieve permission-based content and information for use in multiple systems.
“Fresh, highly relevant content is the most crucial aspect of building traffic and converting visitors into customers. CMIS unlocks the power of a content repository, creating opportunities for those organizations that know how to pair content with commercial opportunities,” said Will Ezell, CTO of dotCMS. “This standard will re-shape the industry and we are proud that dotCMS, as an OASIS TC member, is helping to lead the way.”
The adoption of the CMIS 1.0 specification within the dotCMS product will roll out in phases. Version 1.9 – due to be released in Q1 2010 – will include a draft implementation that will be finalized by release 2.0, scheduled for Q3, 2010.
To learn more about the CMIS implementation in version 1.9, plan on attending Will Ezell’s Product Lab presentation at Gilbane – Thursday, December 3 at 2:00 pm.
