Nuxeo, an Enterprise Content Management company founded in 2000, announced today the release of their newest product, Nuxeo Document Management 5.3. This product comes replete with integration of OpenSocial initiatives, Windows Sharepoint Support services, improved search functions, and CMIS support.
Nuxeo’s newest release aims to please the demands of customers who need an all-inclusive solution to the management of digital content while simultaneously incorporating social business applications. The introduction of OpenSocial support to Nuxeo DM 5.3 allows users to create gadgets to use within enterprise applications. Nuxeo DM 5.3 can be used as an OpenSocial container, allowing for enterprise mashups with products such as Atlassian’s Jira, as well as being a publisher of gadgets.
Another new feature to Nuxeo DM 5.3 is deeper integration with Microsoft Sharepoint for document collaboration. Users can see information regarding their content via the Document Panel in Microsoft Office and files can be opened and saved directly through Nuxeo DM. Additionally, integration with Windows Explorer allows users to access content from Nuxeo while performing familiar browsing operations.
Nuxeo DM 5.3 has added support for draft 0.62 of the CMIS initiative. The inclusion of this, via an add-on component, will ensure interoperability for users who are supporting multiple content repositories.
Search functionality has also been improved in this version. Users are now able to search granularly for metadata and can search for information in multiple fields.
Nuxeo faces stiff competition from the likes of IBM, EMC, OpenText, and Oracle; all of whom are proponents of the CMIS platform. However, the price point of Nuxeo, through developer and production support subscriptions (Nuxeo DM is freely available under the standard LGPL), is lower than many of their bigger competitors.
