Why Use a MAM to Archive When I Can Automate Using an Archive Manager’s Policies?

One of the challenges an administrator at a content company stumbles with when beginning to implement a MAM-based workflow with a tiered storage solution is which one to lead with. It’s almost like new dance partners stumbling over each other’s feet. Even in well-integrated solutions, where the MAM vendor has coded to the archive vendor’s APIs, there is room for conflict. Does one stick solely to the MAM software itself to drive the archival and retrieval of content to the repository? Or does one complement this with policies in the storage archive software itself to automate the archival? Folks in the Hollywood area have an opportunity to learn more about MAM, archive and workflow storage in a live demo event at MelroseMac’s offices on June 9 with BlackMagic Cameras, Cantemo and StorNext. Read on and RSVP for the event.
