Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS): I’m seeing this float around more and more. CMIS is an abstraction layer designed so different content management systems can talk to each other, or so a CMS can separate itself from its repository and work with multiple repositories.
CMIS is designed around a services architecture based on SOAP, REST and Atom to simplify application development. The process of developing content centric applications that are repository independent or that are capable of working with the content from various repositories becomes a viable option as a result of the CMIS specification.
Conceivably, someone could sell a CMS without a repository, and you could buy the repository from another vendor.
Two articles on CMSWire today have tossed this in front of me:
- Open Text Support New Enterprise CMS Standard
- Alfesco Offers First Implementation of CMIS in Alfresco Labs 3
