Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard is a uniform means for applications to work with content repositories. IBM participation in CMIS development drives better interoperability between ECM products regardless of vendor and helps provide clients with more choice and lower costs when it comes to basic ECM needs.
The CMIS standard opens new possibilities for business partners and systems integrators to easily and effectively integrate content management systems. CMIS delivers effective interoperability through content federation and integration.
More than a year in development, the CMIS standard is supported by IBM, Microsoft, SAP, BEA/Oracle, EMC, OpenText and Alfresco. Submission of the standards and specifications to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) is underway.
