This software is well-suited when images are hosted on your own server, but it is less well suited when requiring the "full package" such as manipulations, hosting, uploader, etc.

OCLC
CONTENTdm is well-suited for smaller organizations as a simple solution to present a digital collection on the web. If your need is complex and requires digital preservation as part of the workflow, it may not be the best solution.

Cons
Scaleflex
  • Pricing.
  • Intermittent Dashboard Issues.
  • Image resize traunches. So 100px windows of resizing rather than pixel-perfect rescaling to save on cache size/delivery volume.

  • As a digital asset management system, one would expect the capability of managing preservation, which CONTENTdm lacks.
  • Lack of batch updating and other advanced metadata management capabilities.
  • The usage statistics does not work, and the company is not planning to fix it, at least based the interaction with tech support staff. Customers were referred to use Google Analytics.

We chose Cloudimage for the value for money, and the ability to link with our own hosting.

We selected CONTENTdm because it had a good reputation, was used by many institutions, provided a good product, and supplied feedback and monthly reports. We are wondering about DPLA and if that will be the next evolution or platform.

Return on Investment
Scaleflex

OCLC
  • It helped us to get started with our digital collections projects at a relatively low cost.
  • As our needs grew, it became apparent that we needed something more powerful, and that provides better workflows and better statistics and is able to handle the whole life cycle of digitation projects.
