Cloud CMS - Enterprise Content Management and Web Forms for MongoDB.

Cloud CMS is an open-source and cloud-ready Enterprise Content Management product that runs on top of MongoDB. It provisions your MongoDB projects with enterprise content services like content modeling, data integrity validation, mimetype transformations and extraction, workflow and custom rules, scriptable behaviors and more. It also provides one-click configuration for a wide array of services to support your content-driven applications such as team/role-based security, object-level permissions, service-level auditing, users and groups management, analytics and reporting and more.

With Cloud CMS, you can augment your new or existing MongoDB projects with robust enterprise content services - all built around JSON, MongoDB and a modern cloud-ready architecture.

This talk will introduce Cloud CMS and its affinity for MongoDB. We'll discuss why we chose MongoDB and how we utilize MongoDB in the cloud. In the latter half, we'll go through some examples of getting started and walk through how to build mobile applications that connect to Cloud CMS. We'll look at a collection of prebuilt authoring tools and framework integrations (such as jQuery Mobile, Appcelerator Titanium, jQuery Web Forms and more).


Michael Uzquiano ( is an open-source contributor and has been a part of the content management industry for 15 years. He's led innovations at such companies as Trilogy Software, Vignette and most recently Alfresco Software. He has an avid interest in collaboration systems and the technology that powers mobile experiences.

Michael is one of the founders of Cloud CMS. His goal is create a company and culture that builds products that deliver authentic value to customers. He'd like to reduce the frustration inherent in typical enterprise software by making things easier and more enjoyable. That way, people save time and money. And focus more on what they'd often rather be doing.

Michael graduated with a BS and M.Eng in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University and earned an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
