SAN FRANCISCO, April 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interwoven GearUp 2007 Conference -- Interwoven, Inc. , a global leader in content management solutions, today announced a new version of its award-winning digital asset management product, Interwoven MediaBin 4.6, as well as continued momentum and success in the Digital Asset Management (DAM) market.

With the proliferation of new media, new forms of content and new delivery channels, Digital Asset Management technology has become a top investment priority for marketing organizations. In a Web 2.0 world, companies are demanding a more streamlined approach to the management and delivery of marketing messages and brand imagery across the full spectrum of communications media.

"Ultimately, all content will be managed at a more granular object level -- very much like digital asset management (DAM) does today," said Toby Bell, research vice president at Gartner. "Combining DAM and Web Content Management (WCM) technologies and disciplines to better manage all forms of content, and to better engage a business's external audiences, will drive faster growth in those markets. Gartner expects interest and investment in DAM to outpace the overall ECM market over the next several years as microcontent and commerce strategies merge."

Interwoven can attest to this growth with the addition of many new brand name customers over the past two quarters. A partial list of new MediaBin customers includes Culinary Institute of America, Clear Channel Outdoor, EMAK Worldwide Inc, Mannatech, and Sikorsky Aircraft (a division of UTC Corp), to name a few. Meanwhile, numerous existing customers have invested further and expanded their current implementations due to their positive experiences with MediaBin, including adidas Group, Avaya, Boeing, Clorox, Cole Haan, Harrah's Entertainment, Lucille Packard Children's Hospital, SKY Italia, Ubisoft, Wartsila, Yamaha Corporation, and Yamaha Motor Corporation, among others.

"For Ubisoft, MediaBin has saved our people a significant number of hours in searching for approved digital assets," said Allen Adler, vice president of creative services at Ubisoft. "We use MediaBin to manage all of our brand assets and to provide our sales, marketing and PR teams, as well as external business partners, with self-service access to the materials they need. We are looking forward to the new capabilities of MediaBin 4.6 and are impressed by Interwoven's dedication to meeting our needs."

"Interwoven works with many of the world's top brand names" said Ben Kiker, chief marketing officer at Interwoven. "Now more than ever, these companies are relying on rich, persuasive content to both differentiate themselves and win over new customers. MediaBin is helping marketing teams around the world deliver a more consistent and compelling customer experience by effectively managing, distributing, and publishing the thousands of customer-facing digital assets used to promote their products and brands."

The new functionality introduced in MediaBin 4.6 is designed to meet the demanding needs of creative services and marketing teams. The product update encompasses numerous new capabilities, performance enhancements, and usability refinements including:

-- OS Support for Windows Vista & Office 2007 -- Updated browser support for Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.0 -- Server optimizations for Oracle 10i & Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -- New support for Digital Camera RAW file formats and the Digital Negative (DNG) specification -- New support of CAD and 3D modeling file formats -- Numerous usability refinements within Web, Windows and Mac clients

"Our implementation of Interwoven MediaBin product has had a profound affect upon our organization. MediaBin has helped us to accelerate and control our distribution of electronic marketing materials. We're now planning for expanded usage of MediaBin around the globe," said Jeff Mandell, manager, multimedia services at Synthes, a leading global medical device company. "We have also tested the new version of MediaBin, and we're particularly eager to utilize the new support for 2D and 3D CAD files. This capability will further speed our process for developing marketing collateral based upon early product imagery coming from our engineering teams."

Availability

Interwoven MediaBin 4.6 will be available in May 2007. The new product will be featured at the company's annual customer conference, GearUp 2007, to be held April 25 - 27 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Nearly 1,000 members of the Interwoven community -- customers, partners, prospects and employees -- will attend the conference themed "GearUp for Growth" which will include several tracks on Interwoven MediaBin and the Interwoven Brand Management Solution. In addition, Allen Adler, vice president of creative services at Ubisoft, will present a case study of their MediaBin implementation.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
