Backbase Content Hub enables the integration of different types of content assets from multiple sources (e.g. RSS, ECM, WCM, UGC, CMIS) into a single location. Different portal applications and widgets can access the repository and (re)use specific content where needed. Content Hub supports the CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard, which provides repository interoperability, reduces vendor lock-in and simplifies content migration.
Search and Indexing
Backbase Content Services comes with a scalable, high-performance indexing engine (based on Lucene & Solr). It has open interfaces for XML, JSON, HTTP, and Binary capabilities. It offers ranked search results (best results returned first) and comes with powerful query types: phrase queries, wild card queries, proximity queries, range queries and more.
Integration with Existing CMS
Backbase widgets can consume content from any third-party WCM or ECM. If the content is already available as HTML output, widgets can directly consume it. Alternatively, widgets can consume web services (CMIS) provided by the WCM / ECM. In both cases the Backbase Integration Services can be used to aggregate content from multiple locations into a widget. Backbase does not impose any limitations on the choice of CMS/ECM.
