Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is an OASIS standard for content management systems and applications to interoperate and talk with one another. It defines a vendor and language-neutral way for applications to work with content repositories.
To support this industry effort, Nuxeo helped define the CMIS 1.0 standard and continues to contribute to the Apache Chemistry Open CMIS library. The Nuxeo CMIS connector is a built-in CMIS compliant interface of the Nuxeo repository.

Benefits of Nuxeo + CMIS

  • Lets your content based applications (Digital Asset Management, Document Management, and Case Management) create and access content in a standard, vendor-independent manner
  • Makes your Nuxeo repository compliant with other CMIS third party software (such as digitization tools, ERPs and CMS)
  • High performance, HA Compatible architecture
  • Easy deployment - run on Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL Server or even NoSQL backends such as MongoDB
  • Cloud support - native binary store for Amazon S3 (and other cloud storage solutions) support for Amazon RDS
  • Configurable via Nuxeo Studio - easy to manage Content Model, Metadata, Security, Structure, and Business rules
  • Ready-to-use and highly configurable content authoring / content management console
  • Advanced repository, configurable traceability, and content processing scheduler
  • Embedded Workflow Engine for long term content management rules
  • Easy to integrate in a continuous integration chain since Nuxeo provides all the necessary tooling

Additionally, developers can use OpenCMIS to connect their content-centric applications to Nuxeo, migrate content from legacy CMIS-compliant repositories to new Nuxeo instances, and expose other third party content inside their Nuxeo interface.
