Stephan Klevenz is software architect at SAP and has more than 10 years of experience in large scale software solutions in the area of enterprise content management. He is a member of the OASIS CMIS Technical Committee and active committer to the Apache Chemistry project.
This talk will be of interest to any developer or architect curious to discover how a Content Repository can be a great middleware to help develop faster and better applications dealing with structured and unstructured data. It is also recommended to anyone who is interested in standards and who would like to have a better understanding of the OASIS CMIS standard and how it is implemented within the Apache Chemistry project.
The talk will provide:
- A global understanding of what a Content Repository is from a functional standpoint: exploring all the services it offers, identifying the main standards and technologies integrated (such as CMIS, which is a key one), and understanding the main technical challenges to be resolved, such as high scalability and high performance.
- An introduction and presentation of the Apache Chemistry project, which became an Apache top level project earlier this year.
- A retrospective on the evolution of this project and what it can bring compared to other technologies such as JCR.
