Open Text Corporation, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, has announced the latest release of Artesia for digital asset management (DAM), version 6.0, which provides new security features built on a service oriented architecture. The new release is designed to address such enterprise needs as enabling companies to administer a scalable, flexible, and sophisticated security model across an entire company, not just within a few departments. The Artesia for DAM 6.0 release also delivers new digital asset management services in a J2EE-based Service Oriented Architecture, demonstrating Open Text's commitment to maintaining an advanced architecture for scalability, reliability and ease of delivering new functionality. Artesia for DAM 6.0 marks a major new release of the solution following the acquisition of Artesia Technologies by Open Text a few months ago.
The Artesia for DAM 6.0 Policy-Based Security feature offers customers a flexible, decentralized security model, which allows administrators to manage security policies and user groups throughout an entire company. This feature is designed to enable individual groups, departments, and business units to control access and views into their own universe of digital assets. Artesia for DAM 6.0 also offers ‘delegated' administration in order to minimize the dependency on a centralized administration staff to manage security and empower trusted individuals to manage and define the specific security policies for their user communities, as well as the users that belong to their communities. In addition, as assets advance through the phases of a particular workflow, security policies can be applied or removed to enforce the access levels appropriate for the stage in which the asset resides.
Artesia for DAM 6.0 begins the evolution to Open Text's recently announced Livelink ECM Services Architecture, a J2EE-based Service Oriented Architecture on which all Open Text products will be built. This Artesia release provides asset, metadata, search, user, and security services that leverage J2EE's messaging and clustering capabilities.
