Content Management Interoperability Services, short CMIS, is the new buzzword in the ECM world and is also the name for a new ECM standard. CMIS offers a common view and access on ECM repositories in terms of document management. It provides the least common denominator between all vendors which have been involved in the CMIS standardization.
