Canto, Razuna, Woodwing/Elvis, VYRE and EMC updates

  • 4-Jan-2013

Yesterday we released version 5.2 of our Brand & Digital Asset Management evaluation research, with updates on vendors & tools across the market spectrum.

  • VYRE, longtime a prominent player in the UK DAM market, has increasingly productized their platform, gearing it more towards brand management and marketing resource management - which was no doubt one of several reasons that compelled North Plains to acquire the company. We take a critical look at their new video and workflow features, as well as configuration options, recently debuted in their flagship product, On Brand.
  • Canto, 20+ years in the making, continues to make its way up-market by piling on features to facilitate integration with 3rd-party platforms, SharePoint and WCXM systems in particular. We also take a look at the company's acquisition of a Germany-based services firm.
  • Mega-vendor EMC has never cared much about DAM. But customers already working with Documentum often ask us about the capabilities of EMC's DAM add-ons. We update our research with the latest take.
  • Open source DAM platform Razuna has made updates in the areas of asset rendering and UI customization capabilities. We explain what that might mean for you.
  • Recently acquired by Woodwing, Elvis DAM made some additions to its featureset that we see as long overdue: versioning, for one. We also analyze in-depth how this acquisition will affect both companies.

I'm sure the DAM market will remain dynamic and fast-moving in 2013. You can subscribe to our research for all our in-depth analysis on an ongoing basis.

Our customers say...

"Choosing a digital asset management solution was a daunting undertaking that was alleviated by our subscription with Real Story Group. RSG's research and advice benefited us greatly and insured that we made the correct decision. Not only did we save time and effort but we avoided wasting money on a digital asset management system that didn't fit our needs!"

Oracle Addresses Analytics with Moat Acquisition

  • April 21, 2017

Suffice it to say that with Oracle, like its competitors, these toolsets remain standalone offerings rather than an integrated whole. So a savvy customer will still cherry-pick the right solutions rather than going with a single vendor....
