Nuxeo World 2011: Opening Keynote


Attending Nuxeo World this year as a day 2 keynote speaker and as a sponsor. Those two facts are related but not tied together (My company didn’t pay to be a sponsor in order for me to speak).

As I didn’t write an rules post, using this paragraph. As with EMC World, I will try and take notes. Errors and omissions are likely mine. I’ll be using the normal disclaimer.

The Notes

  • Overview of Nuxeo, emphasis on frameworks that can be scaled up or down as necessary
  • Diving into a series of client case studies (Only a few below).
    • Intercontinental Hotels Group distributes rules and policies, integrated into their Guest Management App, located in the Nuxeo Cloud offering, built in “weeks”
    • Electronic Arts is going to be using Nuxeo to manage their game delivery to testers to control access and track who releases games to the public without authorization
    • Orange is distributing content through an Enterprise Portal. Over 10 million documents being delivered
  • Showing growth of Nuxeo Studio Product. Stressed that it wasn’t downloads but actually usage.
  • Run their test suite on every build, automatically, on the daily releases.
    • Showed test results from past week. Didn’t hide failed tests
    • Showed performance testing over time. Moving up overall but had big dig when they switched to Java [Edit: Occurred with switch to JBoss 5 as per comment below] which they have more than recovered from
  • Improvements:
    • Hot-reload (Critical for live cloud-based apps)
    • OAuth and OpenSocial
    • CSS engine
    • Dynamic Schemas
    • AWS s3 Blob Store, used by some clients as archive storage area
    • Local Configuration for per-domain tenants
    • Mobile SDKs for Android (now) and iOS (soon), includes cached Content Lists and a Store for offline access
  • Core Repository is going to be Eclipse Apricot, Full OSGi, will be using it themselves, not a give and forget
  • Developer Experience comes first, Build/Test/Run in the cloud or on-premise
  • Nuxeo Cloud is Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
    • Hosting on Amazon is easy, switching to a Platform
    • (Missed a lot of this detail-wise, looks very cool and mentioned switching between private and public clouds)

All information in this post was gathered from the presenters and presentation. It does not reflect my opinion unless clearly indicated (Italics in parenthesis). Any errors are most likely from my misunderstanding a statement or imperfectly recording the information. Updates to correct information are reflected in red, but will not be otherwise indicated.

All statements about the future of Nuxeo products and strategy are subject to change at any time due to a large variety of factors.
