Why IKS should matter to CMS technology providers

The landscape of content management is changing: the application builders are becoming more “webby” and the web content providers are becoming more “appsy” – the whole movement is towards interacting with the user. IKS (Interactive Knowledge Stack) is providing the community with open source, permissive license components that can be added to existing systems via RESTful services. Our two main directions in 2011 are: (1) further maturing the semantic enhancement engines currently developed at Apache Stanbol and (2) the “Vienna IKS Editables” – pushing RDFa semantic annotations to HTML5 based “rich editors”. The next big event will be a workshop in Paris, from 5-6 July, 2011. Check it all out on http://www.iks-project.eu/
