Boston, Paris -- June 14, 2011 -- Nuxeo, the provider of a content management platform for business applications, today announced a technology alliance with Hippo, a leading vendor of commercial Java Open Source Web Content Management.
The two companies have built an ECM / WCM connector based on the OASIS CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard. A webinar with a demonstration of the connector will take place on July 20th.
Both Nuxeo and Hippo are open source, Java-based, CMIS-compliant platforms, so the partnership between the two is a natural extension -- bringing high value functionality to developers, content architects and end users of both systems. The Nuxeo / Hippo connector benefits from a high degree of flexibility and ensures that content coming from other sources within the organization can be easily integrated into both platforms.
"The Hippo CMS and Hippo Portal help empower our customers' audiences, by driving multi-channel, multi-lingual, multi-site solutions," said Hippo CEO Jeroen Verberg. "The CMIS connector to Nuxeo applications adds yet another possibility for the online communication of content. And, of course a connector between these two open source, Java-based platforms is quite empowering for organizations that need a scalable system that can grow and integrate with other tools."
Based on the CMIS standard, the connector allows for content from a Nuxeo-based ECM application to be accessible on a Hippo-based website. Content from Nuxeo ECM applications, such as Nuxeo Document Management and Nuxeo Digital Asset Management, is typically managed by business processes internal to an organization. With this new connector, internal business content can be communicated via a website or portal without taking it out of its managed lifecycle. This eliminates the need to duplicate the information, and maintains the content history, validation workflow, versioning, and associated metadata.
"The content management acronyms ECM and WCM can be misunderstood, but they are clearly in separate, but complementary domains," said Nuxeo CEO Eric Barroca. "Nuxeo's Enterprise Content Management solutions address content-centric business processes that are internal to an organization. Web Content Management communicates information online, to both internal and external audiences. Hippo is a fast-growing company with a top-notch WCM solution, and we are pleased to partner with them."
The July 20 webinar, featuring a live demo of the Nuxeo / Hippo connector and Q&A session, will be led by Mathijs Brand, Technical Sales Director for Hippo, and Roland Benedetti, VP of Products and Marketing for Nuxeo.
