Signiant intros new software modules
Signiant will be demonstrating version 9.0 of its Content Distribution Management (CDM) software. Version 9.0 includes two new software modules that allow media and IT-oriented enterprises to manage their content.
The new Media Gateway module allows for the transfer and sharing of large files between individuals and organizations, and the Resource Management module queues delivery of assets and manages network bandwidth. Operations can now prioritize the delivery of assets based upon attributes such as revenue, margins, service level requirements, and news deadlines with either automated or manual delivery to B2B partners or to buyers, and can match internal business rules and workflows.
Signiant’s Cloud Optimized Delivery (COD) enables companies deploying cloud computing to accelerate, automate, and control the movement of data to, from, and between clouds. COD connects between cloud applications and cloud infrastructure and fosters B2B relationships between enterprise and cloud service providers.
Signiant Media Exchange (MX) is a secure browser-based application that enables IT and non-IT managers and staff to send content that is larger than email can handle. Users working from their offices, production sites, or homes can exchange content with other employees, customers, systems, and applications, regardless of location and size of digital assets. Media and project files can be moved across WAN, DSL, or cable, and has new notification features that allow users to track workflow benchmarks, confirmations, and alerts for other departments, such as accounting and finance. A range of custom workflow options is available through integration with Signiant’s full system via the Media Gateway application.
