Content Management Interoperability Services, or CMIS, is an OASIS standard for content management systems and applications that talk with them to interoperate. It defines a vendor and language neutral way for applications to work with content repositories.

To support this industry effort, Nuxeo has helped define the CMIS 1.0 standard and continues to contribute to the Apache Chemistry OpenCMIS library. The Nuxeo Platform CMIS connector is a built-in CMIS compliant interface of the Nuxeo Platform repository. This lets your content based applications (including Digital Asset Management, Document Management, and Case Management) create and access content in a standard / vendor-independent manner.
It also makes your Nuxeo Platform repository compliant with third party software vendors (such as digitization tools, ERPs and CMS) that support the CMIS protocol for accessing a content repository.
