Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS)

EMC, IBM, and Microsoft have drafted Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS), a proposed standard for a set of web services for sharing information among disparate content repositories. CMIS is designed to solve a difficult business problem—ensuring interoperability for people and applications using multiple content repositories. This white paper describes the technical capabilities of CMIS and identifies how the proposed standard, once adopted and implemented within enterprise applications, will accelerate the development of interoperable content solutions.
