Athento makes it possible to integrate capturing features to your SharePoint by using a CMIS interface. Paper documents and electronic documents can be captured, processed and exported to SharePoint. Intelligent document capture with Athento allows for document recognition, document indexing and data extraction.
Using a CMIS connection, it is possible to apply Athento’s intelligent capture to documents that will be stored and used in SharePoint.
SharePoint is compliant with CMIS since its 2013 version.
SharePoint Server compliance with version 1.0 of the OASIS Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard enables integration between SharePoint Server content repositories and other enterprise content management (ECM) apps in an enterprise. CMIS enables information to be shared across Internet protocols among and between document systems, publishers, and repositories, within the enterprise, and between companies—all in a vendor-neutral format. The CMIS standard supports basic document management operations such as create, read, update, delete, check in, and check out. The standard supports managing versions of documents and their metadata. CMIS is available on any on-premises SharePoint 2013 site after the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Producer feature is activated in the Manage Site Features section of Site Settings. In SharePoint 2013, the SharePoint CMIS Producer is available but turned off by default on all on-premises sites.
CMIS provides interoperability between the APIs that support it, but it is not a replacement for native APIs. The objects that CMIS supports intersect with objects that SharePoint Server developers commonly interact with, including documents and folders.
