James and Cheryl started by discussing the rise of open source enterprise content management systems.
They went on to discuss the impact of CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Standards).
CMIS is an OASIS specification, created by a group of enterprise content management system vendors (IBM, EMC, Microsoft, Alfresco, Open Text and others).
CIMS enables different content repositories within an organisation to interoperate with each other even if they are written in different programming languages. If a vendor adds a CMIS compliant layer to their application, then other applications can use CMIS protocols to perform basic content management operations on that application.
For example if an organisation installed an application that had a CMIS layer, it could allow one of its other applications to use CMIS protocols to do things such as
James and Cheryl discussed the progress vendors had made in adding CMIS layers to their products.
Towards the end of the podcast James and Cheryl discussed the question of whether it was either possible or meaningful to make a distinction between 'documents' and 'records'.
The podcast was recorded on 21 April 2011 via skype.
