Digital Asset Management is a core technology and a critical infrastructure component for Customer Experience. From creation to consumption, OpenText Media Management provides a "single source of truth" and consolidated asset repository for marketing, branding, commerce, video and global distribution. It’s an integral part of an ecosystem with interconnected and interdependent contributors and production environments (such as agencies, photo, video, audio, graphics, layout) provisioning digital media content for the multi-channel digital supply chain, digital operations, marketing and brand management.

Organizations who leverage OpenText Media Management can now extend the reach of this data into their existing search indexes via the BA Insight Connectivity Hub and our OpenText Media Management Connector.

The key capabilities of the OpenText Media Management Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise are:

  • Provides both full and incremental ingestion of content into the index of your choice
  • Provides all management of security, role, and access list management, requiring no specialized security software or search index add-ons
  • Supports all information stored within OpenText Media Management
  • Supports filtering of the OpenText Media Management content, allowing administrators to define the data that is sent for ingestion into the search index
  • Brings all associated metadata into the search index to drive refinement and relevancy
  • Supports attachments, custom properties, structured data, and unstructured data

The benefits of including OpenText Media Management data within your Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, or Elastic Cloud Enterprise index include:

  • Provide enhanced search capability into your existing search application while ensuring OpenText Media Management retains the master information.
  • Increase adoption of OpenText Media Management via direct links back into OpenText Media Management to any content found by a user.
  • Provides awareness of OpenText Media Management information to users who otherwise do not have access to OpenText Media Management.
  • Indexes with a very high throughput.
  • Minimal impact of the source system, even helping to improve source system performance by offloading taxing search features.
  • Requires no custom code, with full support and enhancements.
