Canto, a leading provider of Digital Asset Management (DAM) Software, and Magnolia International Ltd, the company behind the Java Open Source Magnolia CMS, step up their collaboration by combining their solutions with a jointly developed integration. With this integration digital assets such as photos, videos and infographics can now be more easily integrated into websites and apps in an efficient and straightforward manner. The solution also offers comprehensive features for addressing duplicates and versioning of assets across all marketing channels.

Cumulus is a proven DAM platform for enterprises and enables organizations to manage large digital media repositories with comprehensive, searchable metadata. All edits are documented in a version history, which automatically recognizes file dependencies. Licenses and access rights can also be controlled in the system. With Magnolia CMS’ intuitive editing interface, complex websites can be managed simply. Its pervasive and standards based Java architecture enables the development of custom functionality as well as the integration of Magnolia into existing IT environments.

The integration between Cumulus and Magnolia allows users to access Cumulus content without ever leaving the Magnolia interface. This ensures a coherent digital presence, as the integration avoids duplicates and makes sure that users always work on the latest version. Additionally, site performance and user experience are continually optimized: Cumulus Image Factory automatically renders images in a web-optimized format and Cumulus Video Cloud is device aware and provides video in the exact quality that network bandwidth and device allow for.

“Digital marketing and the management of visual content on the web have become highly complex - and with that complexity, expectations on organizations have increased. Everybody needs their own, customized combination of systems in order to stay agile in their field,” says Lucas Schnabel, Business Development Manager at Canto. “The end user of digital content is then presented with an optimized customer experience.”

Jan Haderka, Chief Integration Officer at Magnolia, further explains the benefits of this best-of-breed strategy: “We believe that a seamlessly integrated solution should encompass several best-of-breed systems. That way, enterprises have the tools they need to communicate in a targeted and efficient way in today’s fast-paced digital world. We call this approach ‘Open Suite’ - organizations can build their own suite with Magnolia, instead of purchasing an expensive suite of tools they don’t need.”
