Content storage methods have certainly evolved, and it’s been repeated time and time again that “cloud computing” has opened up many windows for complex filing sharing in an open-architecture environment. This loosens the noose of many an off-the-shelf, enterprise software offerings that’ve have many companies on the lock down. Content storage is a no-brainer and shouldn’t be any more complicated than an easy, user interface to store enterprise assets and content. So, why not create a Digital Asset Repository (DAR or DAM) that’s yours and only yours; not a repository that requires your document or content to be saved in a proprietary format or one that’s closed to custom integration or specific language barriers. It could be custom built to manage and access digital assets and metadata allocated information and allow for more defined usages and integrations that meet your specific needs and no one else’s. Since mobility and augmented consumption are a significant catalyst for the empowerment of today’s asset management tools, a customized DAR will ease the distribution no matter what the format or the recipient’s device.
As structured and corporate content management and distribution needs increase, legacy content can be converted into structured, modular content, repurposed for multiple usage and maintained much more cost effectively in a customized DAR. This then creates transparencies to your internal or external network, multiple departments, each and every customer or employee. Any enterprise managing a large fleet of aircraft, parts lists, operational documents, technical publications, compliance-sensitive manuals, learning management content for your current SMS program or even your company’s graphic standards and marketing assets, a customized DAR simply reduces waste, materials, resources and personnel costs across the entire enterprise. It improves supply chain communications and expedites compliance. And, your workflow becomes more visible and accessible to the entire enterprise.
