OASIS: Approval of version 1.1 of Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS)

The OASIS international consortium announced the approval of version 1.1 of Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS). This broadly adopted open standard frees content trapped in traditional "content silos" and facilitates "content in the cloud" and mobile computing.

Functionality added in version 1.1 includes type mutability, supports for object retention and hold, named sets of properties and a JSON-base protocol binding, and now repositories can list supported extensions or additional CMIS-based standards for CMIS clients to discover.

"As an OASIS Foundational Sponsor, ISIS Papyrus participates in shaping the CMIS standard to ensure archive and content management systems become a well-managed back-end to 'Systems of Engagement'. CMIS 1.1 is an important step forward, and widespread industry adoption continues. Enterprises requiring access to multiple content platforms should request that vendors adhere to this standard for long-term stability, as well as vendor and software version independence." -- Max J. Pucher, co-founder/CTO, ISIS Papyrus.
