Here is a video interview of me shot by TiViPro during the recent Open World Forum un Paris.

Here is a rough transcript:

Nuxeo is the pioneer and leader of ECM. Our software is used by large companies throughout the world to help them manage all their documents and digital assets, such as images or emails.

Nuxeo is an open source vendor. That means we are developing a platform, a technology, in a completely open source and transparent way. Everyone can access our source code, make contributions and participate in our community. And we work with partners, such as systems integrators or vertical application vendors, to help them create specific applications that are used by the end users. These applications can deal with aspects such as collaboration, workflow, compliance on processes around documents. Since our technology is base on open source Java, it is very easy to set up, to customize and to extend for systems integrators, because a lot of people around the world already know the Java programming language, and there are a lot of supporting tools.

Nuxeo is quite satisfied by its current situation. We are selling new contracts every day in several different countries. We are growing, in France and in the USA, and we are looking for 15 new people to hire in our team.

A similar interview has also been conducted in French.

J’étais hier à une présentation de SkinMuseum, application de gestion de collections de musées dévelopées par la jeune entreprise innovante SkinSoft.

Nel Taurisson, responsable de la R&D chez SkinSoft, a accepté de répondre à mes question au cours d’une courte interview vidéo que vous trouverez ci-dessous.

Transcription de l’interview

Bonjour, je suis Nel Taurisson, je m’occupe de la R&D chez SkinSoft.

SkinSoft, c’est une société qui développe des applications sur la base de Nuxeo. Notre première application est une application de gestion de collections de musées. On va ensuite s’orienter vers des applications métiers: photothèque, médiathèque, bibliothèque.

Ca fait plus d’un an maintenant qu’on travaille en recherche et développement sur ce sujet. On est parti sur la base de Nuxeo, après avoir regardé de tous les côtés ce qu’on pouvait utiliser comme moteur. On est parti sur Nuxeo pour l’architecture de composants, pour l’architecture globale du produit, parce que c’est une plateforme sur laquelle on arrive très bien à développer, et parce qu’il y a une vraie communauté, qui marche bien, qui répond bien.

Voilà, c’est un beau produit et on essaye de faire de beaux produits avec.

Interview on ComputerWorld UK

| Comments

interviewed by Glyn Moody, one of the best journalists covering open source, for the ComputerWorld UK web site.

France is not a country many would associate with free software startups, but that's changing – not least because the French government is showing itself far more receptive to open source than its UK counterpart. One of the leading companies of this new Nouvelle Vague is Nuxeo, which was set up by Stefane Fermigier, now its CEO.
