Nuxeo and Ephesoft Join Forces to Provide Document Capture to Content and Case Management Solution


Wed 07 September 2011 By Prateeksha Barman

Boston, Paris -- September 7, 2011 -- Nuxeo, the provider of a content management platform for business applications, today announced a technology alliance with Ephesoft, provider of an an intelligent document capture system.

A new connector between the Ephesoft document capture platform and the Nuxeo content management platform is based on the OASIS CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard. A webinar with a demonstration of the connector will take place on September 14th.

The technology alliance between Nuxeo and Ephesoft joins two open source software vendors with best-of-breed solutions for content management initiatives and a commitment to open standards. The connector between the two platforms is a fully open source, end-to-end solution for managing the entire content lifecycle, from capture to publish to archive. With technology from both vendors grounded in open standards, the whole solution is flexible enough to integrate easily into an existing IT infrastructure. Because the Nuxeo technology is platform-based, the end-to-end solution is fully adapted to document management, case management, or other specialized content management scenario.

Both Ephesoft and Nuxeo platforms are cloud-ready platforms, and the end-to-end solution can be deployed on the cloud quickly and easily.

"Content management architects frequently have a requirement for automating the flow of content from the data capture phase to the ECM application," said Ephesoft CEO Don Field. "Now we can offer a standards-based solution that is quick to deploy and easy to integrate."

Based on the CMIS standard, the connector allows for automated content flow from Ephesoft to the Nuxeo platform. Ephesoft captures documents from virtually any possible source (e.g. a scanner, multifunction peripheral, email, existing images, a fax server), then fully automates document separation and data extraction based on the document classification. With the CMIS-based connector between Ephesoft and the Nuxeo Enterprise Platform, the document can then be passed to a full-featured document management repository and incorporated directly into content-centric business processes, with automated workflow, versioning, search/retrieval, and publishing capabilities. The content captured from Ephesoft could also be fed into Nuxeo Case Management Framework, for a fully customizable capture-to-case processing solution.

"Enterprise-grade content management solutions should be scalable and sustainable to mitigate long-term, unforeseen deployment and maintenance costs to the organization," said Nuxeo CEO Eric Barroca. "Because the Nuxeo-Ephesoft integration is based on the CMIS standard and fully cloud-ready, it is flexible, and can grow seamlessly with evolving project requirements."

The Nuxeo - Ephesoft integration is available immediately as a service offering. An easy-to-install CMIS-based integration has been prepared and will be demonstrated in an open webinar on Wednesday, September 14, 2011.
