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.

I like the organized user interface/dashboard that WoodWing provides for their CDN solution. Being able to provide user access and control what they can do permissions wise makes the process very easy to manage. Managing a team of 5+ designers can get hectic at times and this helps solve that issue. The speed of the Elvis CDN servers were on par if not faster than the other CDN solution providers out there and our website load time went from 5.0 seconds to fully load down to 2.8 which was a drastic savings. I dislike the price point that they offer as there are cheaper CDN alternatives out there. Such as Cloudinary or even Amazon's AWS depending on your overall needs. The dashboard is not as easy or simplistic as other CDN alternatives but it does get the job done of delivering assets in a timely manner.

Cons

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?

WoodWing Assets

  • Can be a bit expensive when compared to other CDN alternatives such as AWS or Cloudinary
  • Learning curve involved for the user interface/dashboards
  • Lacks more advanced manipulation of assets that can be served dynamically

Alternatives Considered

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.

Overall Elvis DAM is a great product although when you compare the solution to other providers of similiar asset CDNs such as Amazon's AWS, Rackspace CDN or Cloudinary it can get quite expensive. This is especially true if you have a team that is at the larger enterprise level in which case you are charged by the user.

Return on Investment

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.
