by ,

What's ahead for Widen Digital Asset Management in 2012'Tis the season of predictions and lists! As a follow-up on the CMSWire article "A Look Back at Digital Asset Management" by Rikki Endsley (@rikkiends) on December 29, 2011 which included bits on metadata, social and video, we look at what’s ahead for Widen Digital Asset Management in 2012.

Here are a few bits on our take of what you can expect from Widen Digital Asset Management Software as a Service in the coming year:

Metadata Makes It

Software as a Service continues to evolve by offering more services revolving around metadata & taxonomy development, site audit & clean-up, ongoing metadata administration and best practices training.

Widen’s latest upgrades include powerful search and refine filters, allowing you to truly leverage the power of your metadata fields and Collective intelligence.

Social Marketing Integration

Look for the Widen Media Collective version 6.0 coming in late January which features social integration features for publishing images & videos to popular social networks—YouTube, Facebook and Twitter—direct from Widen DAM.

DAM will also see social business and collaboration features within the Collective experience with new Facebook-like alert features and improved collaboration, workflow and community interactions.

Video Grows & Grows

Widen continues to add features and products to support the growing video demand—including high-quality previews, on-demand transcoding, HTML5 video embed links and analytics.

By leveraging the cloud, Widen DAM supports massive scalability with cost-effective storage based on a pay-for-what-you-use pricing model. We're ready to handle the video demand, are you?
