MoReq2010 – Records Management Rant

Usually, I am pretty positive about a bunch of people meeting up and deciding about how to make the (software) world a better place. Particularly if this bunch includes me! I was devastated though, to be part of the DLM Forum’s spring meeting this year. Not only did I see my concerns about the future of MoReq2 confirmed, but I had to learn that now we have another bunch of people who are working to make MoReq2010 the RM standard that could (or would, or should? Whatever.). Now, this in itself is not news anymore, as others have brokered information like this to the general public much sooner.

The (comparatively new) news is that the new standard will -of course- be incompatible with the old one: (more…)

The ‘World’ just got more complicated (again)

I am not sure if this has been happening more often than once in the past (haven’t checked older versions of the graphic), but since last year, the Real Story Group has added complexity to their content technology vendor subway map. Not only are more vendors covered (though SAPERION still seems to be the only German ECM vendor – at least at a quick glance), no, new lines have been built (SharePoint Add-ons), and others have been re(de)fined.

Two thoughts strike me about this image – one is dealing with the overall market, the other is, well, somewhat related to the presentational choice itself. (more…)

CMIS 1.0 Public Review

Saturday saw the announcement on the OASIS members email list that Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Version 1.0 was ready for public review. Review remains open until Dec. 22nd, and is open for non-OASIS members as well; thus we encourage everyone to participate and provide comments on this important ECM standard. Here is how to do that:

“Comments may be submitted to the TC by any person through the use of the OASIS TC Comment Facility which can be located via [...], or directly at: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/comments/index.php?wg_abbrev=cmis.”

Now, we are already at work to support CMIS (see CMIS, Chemistry and SAPERION Content Repository) but what about you? So far, CMIS is all the rave among the vendors, but the user community remains somewhat quiet ;-)

SAPERION 6 Available

You may already have heard that SAPERION 6 has finally been released (hmmh, okay, it took a little longer than first expected, but we’re far from becoming an entrant of the Vaporware Awards…). With this new release, we have added more than a 100 new features, greatly overhauled the core architecture, and made available more than a 1,000 API calls in addition to those already available. While in the process of creating SAPERION’s newest ECM release, we also created SAPERIONforge, a SAPERION-centric platform for open source developers we intend to further expand in the future.

Is MS (getting) serious about CMIS & MOSS?!

We think: yes. There are several reasons to believe just that, among the least important of which is the fact that MS was among the group of companies who originally submitted the standards effort to OASIS. However, there are other things that make us believe that CMIS may be in for a treat by MS, particularly that MS folks have started to prove the point of CMIS by actively publishing an example about CMIS-based MOSS integration on MSDN.

CMIS F2F Meeting almost finished

SAPERION in good neighbourship

SAPERION in good neighbourship

A (actually, the first) CMIS TC F2F in Redmond is coming to an end (ok, at the time of this writing, folks are still considering the issues that have been raised so far (see the CMIS Jira at http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/CMIS)). Many valuable contributions and discussions evolving around controversial aspects have taken place. Not surprising, one of the important results is the aggressive schedule set for the release of CMIS 1.0. The preliminary schedule leading to a first public draft can be found here: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/30951/CMIS%20strawman%20schedule.xls. This schedule requires some functions to be restricted to a common denominator or to be dropped entirely. Thus, ACLs (particularly, the distinction between reading and writing ACLs), batch processing, and mix-ins (or aspects, think decorators when not familiar with AOP) will need to be further refined.

At the current DLM Forum (www.dlm2008.com), MoReq2 is a hot topic. Here, a delegate from Romania is detailing changes required to make MoReq2 a worthwile and lasting iniative.

Update: imbus and the DLM Forum have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding effectively paving the way to make imbus the first MoReq2 testing center.
