A Fusion of Digital Asset Management & Digital Preservation
Digital asset management (aka DAM) is broadly defined as management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets while Digital preservation is defined as "a formal endeavor to ensure that digital information of continuing value remains accessible and usable. It involves planning, resource allocation, and application of preservation methods and technologies, and it combines policies, strategies and actions to ensure access to reformatted and "born-digital" content, regardless of the challenges of media failure and technological change."
We bring these principles and functions together to provide services and solutions that allow your team to effectively manage your images, videos, documents and more in a central workspace while ensuring files are protected and preserved for long-term storage. Our team, consisting of solution architects, librarians, systems engineers and software developers, develop solutions ranging from closed repositories intended to preserve and protect company's internal assets to public repositories designed to bring organizational assets online to share with the world.
Our OnDemand offerings make it easier than ever to start a digital repository so all you have to worry about is uploading your data. No need to worry about maintaining complicated server, storage and backup infrastructure. We do it all for you and provide you with a customizable platform that can be tailored to meet both your visual and functional requirements!
Have a piece of custom functionality or a custom integration you want to develop? Require the implementation of a custom metadata standard? Want to migrate your data from an existing system? Need training for your team? We can help!
