Updated DAM reviews of Asset Bank, Bynder, Canto, censhare, MediaBeacon, OpenText, ResourceSpace, and ZONZA

  • 21-Nov-2016

We've just released an update to RSG's Digital & Marketing Asset Management evaluation research, weighing in on the latest releases and company changes at several of the vendors we cover.

Here's a short preview:

  • Hogarth Worldwide recently wrote-off ZONZA, a platform which the large advertising firm marketed prominently as an enterprise DAM a few years ago, and now only maintains for existing Hogarth customers
     
  • UK SaaS stallwarts Bright Interactive / Asset Bank and Brandworkz continue to expand their offerings, adding to the extremely competitive and ever-growing cloud-based DAM market
     
  • WAVE recently lost its CEO; in the research we discuss the implications
     
  • ResourceSpace, one of the few significant open source DAM projects, continues to grow thanks to both community and commercial contributions 
     
  • OpenText acquired HP's MediaBin earlier this year, which has significant overlap with its other DAM product, Media Manager — but the vendor claims they will "continue to protect existing customer investments"
     
  • MediaBeacon, formerly a small and eccentric DAM pure-play, has catapulted into the bigger leagues with backing from Danaher and integration with Esko tools
     
  • FotoWare, Norway's most prominent DAM, is expanding its presence in the super-competitive North America
     
  • Censhare along with Stylelabs is pushing into newer models of data management and tightly coupled DAM with PIM
     
  • Bynder continues to invest heavily in UX, web2print, and workflow tools
     
  • Canto is struggling with its long-attempted reach into the higher echelons of large enterprise DAM

These quick bullets only scratch the surface of the 10- to 14-page reviews we publish about each vendor and their technologies.

What Is a Real Quadrant?

Customers have a love-hate relationship with marketplace "quadrant" diagrams. You suspect there's something not right in the arbitrary positioning...and you're correct!...
