This is great news from Microsoft in the area of SharePoint Enterprise Content Management (ECM) on the ECM Team Blog today. From the blog post:
Today, we're excited to announce the launch of a standards effort for Enterprise Content Management systems that Microsoft has been driving with several other major vendors (IBM, EMC, Alfresco, OpenText, SAP, Oracle) called "Content Management Interoperability Services" (or CMIS, for short).
The goal of CMIS is to define a web services standard for interacting with Enterprise Content Management systems like Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, EMC Documentum, IBM FileNet P8, etc.
You can get more info from the blog post as well as from the press release which includes a video interview by Jeff Teper, Corp VP of the Office Business Platform (3 minutes).
