Artesia Technologies, a specialist in enterprise digital asset management, today opened the industry’s first user conference, “Making Waves — Navigating the Wealth of Enterprise Content,” which focuses exclusively on the exchange of information for effective digital asset management throughout the enterprise.
The two-day conference in London will offer a conference session highlighting specific features of Artesia’s TEAMS solution for Mac users. Representatives from Artesia and such firms as Sun Microsystems, Accenture, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, KPMG Consulting and PCI are on hand “to chart the future of digital asset management.”
At the conference, Artesia Technologies will preview the next generation of TEAMS based entirely on Java and due for release later this year. TEAMS software captures a variety of rich media types through filters that automatically enrich content with its physical descriptive property information.
Introduced last September, the native Mac enterprise client — part of the company’s digital asset management (DAM) solutions — was developed to ease the file-intensive process of graphics production, according to the folks at Artesia. The Mac creative client offers “usability focused functionality” that includes one-click checkout, drag and drop import and export of assets, AppleScriptability, and version control. Its QuarkXPress integration includes Quark drag and drop, XPress thumbnail images and links between assets and the layouts in which they appear.
The Mac client also boasts Adobe XMP integration that includes support for managing XMP settings. And it offers a customizable Project Framework that’s designed to enable the creation of electronic job jackets for users to gather and share collections of assets.
