I just watched a very interesting screen cast at:

Alfresco-Drupal Integration via CMIS:http://labs.optaros.com/2009/04/07/alfresco-drupal-integration-via-cmis-screencasoach

This video presents an approach to integrating Drupal 6.X and Alfresco.  Alfresco is a powerful  commercial or opensource J2EE ECM and Drupal is smaller agile PHP CMS/developement framework.  Drupal is powerful opensource solution to enable web sites with various features via modules/plugins.  Such features are such as content management, OpenId, Facebook Integration, blogging, comments, and social media.  However Drupal does not have the scalability required by most fortune 500 businesses who want an ECM to centralize/archive a majority of their content.  This screencast demonstrates a very innovative approach that leverages Alfreso ECM to centralize and govern content via workflow and its robust web content management and then push/pull/sycnchronize content using CMIS across various distributed Drupal Sites and Alfresco.  The presents a very fitting solution for managing content across multiple Drupal sites for blogging, marketing, intranets, microsites, and campaigns etc.  This further shows how to decouple content from presentation layer and even another PHP CMS solution. Can’t wait to play around with this approach, it could solve many issues revolving around the distribution of content across channels,widgets, mobile, etc..

Question: Could I get this to work Alfresco to WordPress? Hmmmm
