NetX - easy; effective; delivers to its promise
After a couple of rounds to evaluate Digital Asset Management solutions available in the market, Healthdirect Australia chose to implement NetX by NetXposure ¿ evaluation criteria was broad, however the following key criteria stood out:
- the NetXposure team was eager to assist on every level of detail, the entire NetXposure team is highly educated on the product and its capabilities.
- NetXposure was willing to adapt the product to support our AWS-S3 requirements and incorporate it into the mainstream release to ensure an open upgrade path for our organisation.
- easy and simple installation and configuration through Continuous Delivery & Integration.
- simple, yet cost effective licensing model for an organisation who requires Enterprise grade software, but with limited amounts of digital assets to manage.
Security (Authentication and Authorisation) behind the management of assets was a crucial area of evaluation ¿ NetX hit the mark on this front with fine grained access control, coupled with the appropriate user levels built into the application. Integration with 3rd party authentication providers like LDAP made it an easy call.
NetX integrated into our environment without a mammoth effort ¿ not having fully integrated with the various API¿s NetX offer, the path is definitely there to expand on the usage thereof in future.
The user interface of NetX was easy to understand and train our digital content producers on ¿ most of them found their way around the interface without a lot of guess work and was able to get going in no time.
Primary assets managed within NetX are still graphics, however some audio and video are also stored and managed within NetX. Although not currently utilised, the options to support various 3rd party video encoders/transcoders made NetX a good choice to expand on future capabilities and fulfil business requirements.
The implementation timeframe of NetX and willingness of the NetXposure team to assist was a definite benefit ¿ with limited time left on the project to get a Digital Asset Management solution in place, we were pleasantly surprised at the simplicity of NetX to get up and running.
NetX delivers on its promise ¿ a very good Digital Asset Management product with a great support team behind it.
