There are three fundamental use cases for CMIS:

1. Repository to Repository: This is the direct communication between repositories. This most often occurs when content needs to be managed from a central, “master”, repository.

2. Application to Repository: This is when an application that uses content stores that content in an external repository. Through the use of CMIS, the application can focus on providing its core business solution without managing the content or integrating with different repositories that may each have their own API.

3. Federated Repository: This is the presentation of a collection of repositories to a user or application as a single repository. This model occurs frequently when users need to combine the services and information available from multiple systems to satisfy searches for content across a scope larger than any individual department.
