PRESS RELEASE: Liferay Improves Access to ECM Document Repositories with CMIS 1.0 Compatibility

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Liferay, provider of the world's leading enterprise-class open source portal, today announced its plans to further improve ease of integration with third-party ECM document repositories via full CMIS compatibility in its upcoming release of Liferay Portal EE 6.1.

CMIS is an industry standard that unifies ECM and DM repositories and enables easy integration for a wide range of repository types. Liferay introduced CMIS compatibility in Liferay Portal EE 6.0 to its out-of-the-box Document Library. Full compatibility in 6.1 EE will allow users to pull in data from multiple CMIS-compatible data repositories, including vendor-specific products like SharePoint and Documentum.

"The CMIS protocol has quickly become an important strategic element for companies looking to improve access to data across different vendor repositories," said Alexander Chow, Senior Software Engineer at Liferay, who implemented the CMIS standard. "This gives our Enterprise users easy access to data no matter what repository the documents are stored in. As Liferay itself becomes a strategic platform throughout their enterprise, we are committed to making access to data as seamless as possible."
