Produce Content and Results More Quickly

Any organization managing a large volume of video, images, and other valuable file data needs to catalog and organize these assets – both in-work and after completion. Teams can collaborate more effectively and produce content more quickly. Managers can control and track who is working on what and manage access control across the full data lifecycle for secure sharing and data governance. Complex tiered storage is made simple. Large content archives can be indexed and searched across local and cloud repositories. And the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning technology can be leveraged to enrich the data further. In short, an asset management platform can help organizations unlock the business value in their digital data.
