Reusing existing digital assets to cut down costs
Endeca Technologies, a provider of search applications, and Open Text, a provider of enterprise content management systems, have formed a partnership to deliver Endeca’s Digital Asset Navigator system on Open Text Digital Media Group’s Enterprise Media Management.
Endeca said that the joint offering is designed to provide media, publishing and retail organizations with an ability to cut costs and streamline operations by reusing existing digital assets, such as audio, video, and images that are stored in house instead of recreating or purchasing new assets.
Endeca also said that its Digital Asset Navigator offers an access and discovery experience, combining Endeca’s search, guided navigation and content spotlighting capabilities. It integrates related data from Open Text’s enterprise Digital Asset Management system, as well as databases, file servers, enterprise applications and other source systems, providing a 360-view of information relevant to digital asset reuse.
According to Endeca, the joint solution also uses Endeca’s advanced security capabilities to ensure that users only have access to data they are approved to see and use, decreasing legal and compliance costs.
Damian Saccocio, vice president of product marketing at Open Text Digital Media Group, said: The partnership announced today with Endeca is notable not only for the completeness of the solution that Discovery now enjoys, but also for the solution’s speed of development and flexibility which can be directly attributed to the robust set of open standard interfaces that both Open Text and Endeca support.
