The way businesses manage and distribute media has changed dramatically in the past ten years. Like the recent #10YearChallenge meme that caused a stir on social media, there is often a world of difference between the technologies of 2009 and those of 2019.
It’s hardly surprising. In this age of digital transformation, you can’t hope to use old processes and systems to effectively and speedily manage media today.
There’s an expectation, for example, that media requests should be fulfilled in seconds rather than hours (or days). So having a media library where files are scattered across local computers, DVDs, and shared Dropbox folders just won’t cut it.
There’s an expectation that sharing, promoting and licensing media should be easy and automatic. So why would you have a media library controlled by a slow-to-respond human gatekeeper who needs to send out content manually?
There’s an expectation that security should go beyond simple password protection; that content should only be seen by those who need to see it. So having a media library that doesn’t include extra authentication options such as Single Sign-On and watermarking seems absurd.
