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.

It seems to suit our purpose well - ie storing of artwork, brand livery, collateral, documentation, and images.

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?

Workfront Library

  • The UI is a little clunky
  • We are missing the functionality to quickly add metadata to the contents of a whole folder at once
  • The search function can be a little hit or miss

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.

Workfront Library

Seems to have similar features to other NZ local options we investigated. But what appealed was its integration with Workfront which we use.

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.

Workfront Library

  • Reduces the risk of not knowing where a certain asset is stored
  • No more file retrieval fees
  • Everything located in one place that everyone can access
  • But ..... it’s a painful process locating all your files and setting it up. No fault of the DAM
