Open Text’s latest version of Artesia DAM software helps manage assets in a highly sophisticated way while making them available to multiple network users.
Open Text, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, has announced the latest release of Artesia for DAM, version 6.0, which provides new security features built on a service-oriented architecture.
The new version enables companies to easily administer a scalable, flexible, and sophisticated security model across an entire company, not just within a few departments.
Artesia for DAM 6.0 marks a major new release of the solution following the acquisition of Artesia Technologies by Open Text last year. The policy-based security feature is designed to address a key challenge in the adoption of an enterprise-wide repository: the need for individual groups, departments, and business units to be able to control access and views into their own universe of digital assets.
In order to minimize the dependency on a centralized administration staff to manage security, Artesia for DAM 6.0 offers ‘delegated’ administration, empowering trusted individuals to manage and define the specific security policies for their user communities, as well as the users that belong to their communities.
In addition, as assets advance through the phases of a particular workflow, security policies can easily be applied or removed to enforce the access levels appropriate for the stage in which the asset resides. This approach significantly reduces the security burden on users while providing powerful and efficient tools for administrators.
Artesia for DAM 6.0 also offers a new feature, Dynamic Enterprise Metadata, a new concept in metadata management. With this feature, Artesia dynamically retrieves asset metadata from an external data repository such as SAP, Siebel, or any other custom data application based on the identity of the user. This allows Artesia users to retrieve enterprise metadata from where it resides, in a robust, secure, and Web-friendly manner.
