The Digital Resources (Digital assets) are information and files which, due to their higher value than other data or files, are managed and stored in order to be controlled, reused, and shared.
Digital resources can be of any format or type: text, images, video, audio, 3D or VR environments, various documents (e.g. spreadsheets, presentations, projects, PDFs ...), or structured or unstructured data stored in a database.
The semantic value of a digital asset can be greatly enhanced by enriching it with further classification elements such as metadata. The more metadata assigned to the resource, the easier it will be to classify and filter it and the more value (both semantic and economic) it will assume.
A digital asset management solution is a multimedia information system designed and implemented to respond to a specific purpose
The best known and most popular solutions for digital asset management are:
- Product Information Management - PIM
- Web Content Management System - WCM or WCMS
- Digital Asset Management - DAM
- Digital e-Commerce Platform
All these solutions are nothing more than a multimedia or hypermedia information system, which is an organized archive of data and information of a heterogeneous nature concerning a specific theme or topic, which is interrogated by authorized satellite systems or which actively distributes information based on rules and logic well defined.
The archive of a museum aimed at the use by visitors, or the information and technical material of a product catalog aimed at marketing, training, and after-sales assistance are two typical examples of multimedia information systems or management solutions of digital assets.
In increasingly complex and articulated contexts such as the current ones, where information is shared, multilingual, and multimedia, the need to centralize control and management is increasing
Especially for companies with an important presence on the network or with significant information assets, the multimedia information system is the ideal tool to collect your database in a single collector and to make it usable through a single interface to the editorial staff, translators, to agencies and users.
A centralized solution that is easy to access and complete with all the search functions will allow users to create, edit, upload, download, share, correct, print, filter, authorize and finally release, with the right control, their own digital resources.
A single information system that can be queried in real-time from sites and applications but also equipped with a set of procedures to automatically distribute content or generate documents
Thanks to a standard API interface, any authorized external system will be able to query the database and acquire all the necessary information according to its needs and timing.
Thanks to the revolutionary and exclusive Hyperspace Application Platform we are able to quickly implement customized solutions for the management of digital assets, significantly reducing both project time and costs.
The basic functions of the Hyperspace platform allow to support all the required functions natively, in particular:
- Differentiated access: for single user, workgroup, security level (Security Clearance Levels) and external users
- Full-Text Search
- File Management (Media Manager)
- Dynamic data association (Dynamic Chunking and Relationships Network)
- Model-based data merging (Data Merge)
- Word Interface for direct access to documents in the Media Manager via Microsoft Word
- Data import and export
- Integration with standard e-commerce platforms or web content management
- REST API query interface
- Class library to independently develop your own procedures
- Author environment to model and evolve your data structure
The technological platform Hyperspace will therefore make it possible to control access, carry out searches, establish relationships, generate documents, import and export data, support services, and integrate with other information systems.
Instead, thanks to the class library it will be possible to develop all the procedures necessary to manage the automatic distribution of one's digital resources to other connected information systems or to dynamically generate test documents on models.
Finally, thanks to the native integrations of the Hyperspace platform, it will be possible to directly interface your information system with the most common e-commerce, social network, or digital marketing platforms.
