Cumulus

It feels like Digital art is exactly what it is designed for, it should be used as a versioning tool allowing someone to basically check out artwork, make changes, check it back in preventing anyone else from doing the same.It is not a general file share program, it is far too robust to limit it to just file sharing.

OpenText MediaBin

If you want to share (or access) the most current version of any content MediaBin can be useful for ensuring that you are getting the right thing - assuming you can find it. Another useful functionality - OS sharing or exporting different file formats for a file. Often PDF works, but sometimes you need a file in a different image format and the software can allow that.

Pros

Cumulus

  • Our clients (faculty/staff and students) number close to 50,000. Cumulus' online database allows us to share photos and place any restrictions we deem appropriate, like password protection or print permissions.
  • Cumulus' dashboard is really easy to navigate. There are two sections on the left rail (categories and filters), and approximately 10-40 photos per page, whichever you choose. There's a rollover function that enlarges the pic, and the tabs to download or compile is underneath.
  • Cumulus' search is pretty precise. Our photo data base is 300,000 photos deep, and it was once twice that amount, with many photos falling into the same categories.

Cons

Cumulus

  • Easier reporting
  • It should prevent drag and drop in the tree that would orphan linked files
  • More ways to search
Jason Lane | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText MediaBin

  • Search is often a chellenge - using the file name or "item number" doesn't always bring up the expected results.
  • Navigation is not intuitive in places - finding different functions
  • The export function is powerful but not always clear, several options seem like the same thing. e.g. Do I need FTP ot HTTP download? Do I care?

Alternatives Considered

Cumulus

We've used Cumulus through my five years here, and have gone through a pair of upgrades. Personally, I've used Dropbox to share photos, and I've considered Dropbox Business. Dropbox doesn't have nearly as much storage or as clean of a layout as Cumulus, and the upload process is much faster with Cumulus.

OpenText MediaBin

I was not involved in the selection process but MediaBin seems to be more of a "repository" than a "file-folder" system. It also displays thumbnail previews of files making it useful for sorting through visual elements, like photos or PDFs. I am not certain how it compares with regard to version history.

Return on Investment

Cumulus

  • This is not an incredibly expensive product/support
  • I have been able to prevent costly file recovery due to its internal backup system
  • We can see who accesses what files, internal or external
Jason Lane | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText MediaBin

  • This software is more of a tool that resides in the background, so it is difficult to measure ROI.
  • One negative impact is the challenges of managing access and thus limiting productivity when people can't access things.
  • Another negative impact is the poor search functionality reducing productivity in finding the correct files when needed.
