CMIS will take center stage at this year's event as AIIM plans to leverage the new draft specification to host a federated demonstration allowing attendees to access conference materials stored in multiple content management systems (CMS). The proposed CMIS standard currently is being advanced by an OASIS technical committee and is designed to enable content to be accessed regardless of CMS. Developers can build and test CMIS applications using Alfresco which then can be deployed on SharePoint, EMC, IBM, or OpenText. Alfresco is participating in the AIIM CMIS demonstration by providing access to a hosted Alfresco implementation, which uses an Alfresco ECM repository and delivers out-of-the-box, collaborative content management. The OASIS Technical Committee expects to reach standards approval on CMIS by the end of 2009.

Alfresco also will make a CMIS and Cloud Computing Developer Kit available to AIIM attendees. The developer kit includes example code for connecting Alfresco to Joomla! and Drupal, plus examples of CMIS using Java, Flex, Javascript and Alfresco, as well as a live Alfresco system to develop and test CMIS applications.

"CMIS has huge momentum and will become the foundation for building a new generation of content collaboration and social computing applications," said John Newton, CTO, Alfresco Software. "The AIIM Conference presents the perfect venue to demonstrate the benefits of CMIS in action with live systems and discuss how ECM vendors, users and developers can leverage this emerging standard to provide a new range of content applications that will bring content management technology to the masses."
