The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) has appointed a technical committee to develop the CMIS standard. The schedule of current and future activities can be found here.
Skepticism related to new standards aside, let’s just wait and see what comes out of this CMIS story. Chuck Hollis of EMC insists that CMIS is not JAS (Just Another Standard). No BS.
