Nuxeo and Ephesoft Join Forces to Provide Document Capture to Content and Case Management Solution
BOSTON, MA and PARIS, Sep 07, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Nuxeo, the provider of an Open Source Content Management Platform
for Business Applications, today announced a technology alliance with
Ephesoft, provider of an an intelligent document capture system.
A new connector between the Ephesoft document capture platform and
the Nuxeo content management platform is based on the OASIS CMIS
(Content Management Interoperability Services) standard. A webinar
with a demonstration of the connector will take place on September
The technology alliance between Nuxeo and Ephesoft joins two open
source software vendors with best-of-breed solutions for content
management initiatives and a commitment to open standards. The
connector between the two platforms is a fully open source,
end-to-end solution for managing the entire content lifecycle, from
capture to publish to archive. With technology from both vendors
grounded in open standards, the whole solution is flexible enough to
integrate easily into an existing IT infrastructure. Because the
Nuxeo technology is platform-based, the end-to-end solution is fully
adapted to document management, case management, or other specialized
content management scenario.
Both Ephesoft and Nuxeo platforms are cloud-ready platforms, and the
end-to-end solution can be deployed on the cloud quickly and easily.
"Content management architects frequently have a requirement for
automating the flow of content from the data capture phase to the ECM
application," said Ephesoft CEO Don Field. "Now we can offer a
standards-based solution that is quick to deploy and easy to
Based on the CMIS standard, the connector allows for automated
content flow from Ephesoft to the Nuxeo platform. Ephesoft captures
documents from virtually any possible source (e.g. a scanner,
multifunction peripheral, email, existing images, a fax server), then
fully automates document separation and data extraction based on the
document classification. With the CMIS-based connector between
Ephesoft and the Nuxeo Enterprise Platform, the document can then be
passed to a full-featured document management repository and
incorporated directly into content-centric business processes, with
automated workflow, versioning, search/retrieval, and publishing
capabilities. The content captured from Ephesoft could also be fed
into Nuxeo Case Management Framework, for a fully customizable
capture-to-case processing solution.
"Enterprise-grade content management solutions should be scalable and
sustainable to mitigate long-term, unforeseen deployment and
maintenance costs to the organization," said Nuxeo CEO Eric Barroca.
"Because the Nuxeo-Ephesoft integration is based on the CMIS standard
and fully cloud-ready, it is flexible, and can grow seamlessly with
evolving project requirements."
The Nuxeo - Ephesoft integration is available immediately as a
service offering. An easy-to-install CMIS-based integration has been
prepared and will be demonstrated in an open webinar on Wednesday,
September 14, 2011.
