The OASIS international consortium recently announced the approval of Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) version 1.0, a new open standard that enables information to be shared across Enterprise Content Management (ECM) repositories from different vendors. In collaboration with other major ECM solution providers worldwide, ISIS Papyrus, an OASIS Foundational Sponsor, contributed to CMIS becoming an official OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification.
“The OASIS CMIS 1.0 ratification is an important first step to enable businesses to freely make important solution choices for ECM, BPM and CRM applications without being limited to the functionality of the underlying archive system vendor,” says Max J. Pucher, Chief Architect of ISIS Papyrus. “We hope that subsequent releases will reach beyond access to content and metadata, and we are positive that this emerging standard – which Papyrus Platform already supports – will be widely adopted and increase motivation for continuous expansion to full content interoperability in process-oriented environments.”
Using Web services and Web 2.0 interfaces, CMIS dramatically reduces the IT burden around multi-vendor, multi-repository content management environments. Companies no longer need to maintain custom code and one-off integrations in order to share information across their various ECM systems. CMIS also enables independent software vendors (ISVs) to create specialized applications that are capable of running over a variety of content management systems.

We are proud to announce that ISIS Papyrus has become a foundational sponsor of OASIS – the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards. OASIS is a global consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of standards for Web infrastructure and e-business. It produces more Web services standards than any other organization along with standards for security, e-business, and standardization efforts in the public sector and for application-specific markets. Founded in 1993, OASIS has more than 5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual members in 100 countries.
With this move ISIS Papyrus joins only a few but some of the most notable organizations in the global IT world. As a worldwide leader in its own right when it comes to consolidating inbound and outbound business communications and related processes in a single platform, ISIS Papyrus is certainly poised to contribute substantially to the efforts of the non-profit body. The technological edge developed by ISIS over the years and its ongoing commitment to promote benefits for business users match perfectly with the user-oriented approach and transparent governance advocated by OASIS.
It will be of great interest how this cooperation brings about synergies for the broader IT community and for users and businesses around the world. Another focus will be on how open standards can provide for more flexibility in application development as the latter has been the major concern behind the unique Papyrus technology. We hope to offer some exciting news in the future as they develop.
