Content Management Interoperability Spec(CMIS) Ready for Public Review

We expect the CMIS OASIS Technical Committee is feeling pretty good right now. Yesterday they voted CMIS specification draft 0.70b to be the official Committee Draft and approved it for submission to the OASIS public review process.

Now the fun part really begins.

CMIS: Draft at v0.7, a Public Review Vote and WCM Potential

Summer has come and gone and we still haven't seen a public review of the Content Management Interoperability Specification (CMIS). But while many of us have been impatiently waiting, it does appear that things have been happening.

Twitter is all a flutter with one individual tweet from enterprise content management vendor Nuxeo's Florent Guillaume (@efge):

#CMIS 0.70 soon official draft, and to be submitted for Public Review. Still on track for standardization near end of year!

Packt's Author of the Year: Jeff Potts for Alfresco Developer's Guide

Packt's Author of the Year: Jeff Potts for Alfresco Developer's Guide Three cheers for Jeff Potts! The author of Alfresco Developer Guide took home Packt’s (news, site) Author of the Year award along with a cool US$ 1000 cash prize earlier this month. Not bad for a guy’s first published book, right?

“I am excited and honored to win the award,” said Potts, “especially because I know there were several popular and well-written books among the finalists.”

The finalists included 5 other nominated titles:

Drupal Multimedia by Aaron Winborn
Learning Drupal 6 Module Development by Matt Butcher
Learning Ext JS by Shea Fredrick, Colin Ramsay and Steve "Cutter" Blades
Object-Oriented JavaScript by Stoyan Stefanov
Service Oriented Architecture with Java by Vincenzo Caselli, Binildas A. Christudas and Malhar Barai

Judges praised Potts’ book in particular for “providing a strong balance of background, actionable items, and wisdom” and bringing a complex, challenging topic “down to earth”.

“Most of our authors write in their limited free time alongside demanding full time jobs and this award gives us another, more fun way to reward and thank our authors,” said David Barnes, Packt Acquisition Editor and organizer of the award.

Inspired? Check out Potts’ book here.

Alfresco Hooks Blue Fish in New Partnership

Alfresco_Logo_2009.jpg Our open source friends at Alfresco (news, site) are branching out to the Lone Star State via a strategic partnership. Blue Fish Development Group, a Texas based ECM consulting and application development outfit, announced earlier this week that they will join the Alfresco Software Gold Partner Program.

While Alfresco is contemplating whether or not bigger really is better, Blue Fish will presumably be swimming in its decision to embrace enterprise open source. The openness of the platform comes with the support of a very large community, making it both easier to innovate with Alfresco and better serve clients at a lower cost.

“We’re very excited to have Blue Fish join our team,” said John Newton, CTO and Chairman of Alfresco. “Blue Fish has a track record of successfully delivering creative ECM solutions, building ECM user communities to share knowledge and solving challenging business problems for Fortune 1000 companies. They bring to open source ECM invaluable expertise based on over a decade of development on traditional ECM systems.”

The two teams will be  kicking off the partnership with a joint webinar on the 25th of this month. For more information about the webinar including a sign up sheet, move along this way. And while you're at it, why not take a peek at our events list as well?

Document Management Vendor KnowledgeTree Embraces CMIS

Document Management Vendor KnowledgeTree Embraces CMIS

CMIS, in its current state, seems to be best suited for document management scenarios. Hence, it was only a matter of time before a DMS vendor like KnowledgeTree (news, site) jumped on the CMIS bandwagon (joining the many Web and Enterprise CMS players) and released its own implementation of the draft Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification.

Admittedly, quite a timely move, considering that the latest OASIS CMIS Technical Committee face-to-face meeting took place only two weeks ago, getting CMIS an inch closer to the actual standard level.
