One of the 50+ public/private storage connector’s that Storage Made Easy support is a CMIS connector.

CMIS) is an open standard that defines an abstraction layer for controlling diverse document management systems and repositories using web protocols.

Essentially CMIS defines a domain model plus bindings that can be used by applications to manipulate content stored in a repository.

CMIS denies three protocol bindings one using WSDL and SOAP, another using JSON and another using AtomPub. which is the CMIS protocol binding that the Storage Made Easy connector supports.

Many Document Management systems support CMIS including, but not limited to:

OpenText, SAP Hana Cloud Document Service, IBM Filenet, Apache Chemistry, HP Autonomy Interwoven, EMC Documentum, and Sharepoint from Microsoft.
