A deep well for DAM

This article appears in the issue February 2005 [Volume 14, Issue 2]

Open Text has announced the latest release of Artesia for Digital Asset Management (DAM). Version 6.0, an enterprisewide solution, provides new security features built on a service-oriented architecture.

In order to minimize the dependency on a centralized administration staff to manage security, Open Text says, Artesia for DAM 6.0 offers delegated administration, enabling selected 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 be applied or removed to enforce the access levels appropriate for the stage in which the asset resides. Open Text claims this approach significantly reduces the security burden on users while providing powerful and efficient tools for administrators.

Open Text reports Artesia for DAM 6.0 begins its evolution to the recently announced Livelink ECM Services Architecture, a J2EE-based service-oriented architecture on which all Open Text products will be built. This Artesia release provides asset, metadata, search, user and security services that leverage J2EE's messaging and clustering capabilities, the company says.
