Open Text announced the news at the Gilbane Content Management Conference."With this new release, Artesia continues to add breadth and depth to its digital asset management solution," said Frank Gilbane, President, Bluebill Advisors, Editor, Gilbane Report. "As the ECM space continues to grow, it is important to have industrial-strength DAM capabilities that integrate well with a range of content management and collaboration functionality, as the evolution of Artesia for DAM toward the Livelink ECM Services Architecture is headed." "With Artesia in the Open Text family we have the opportunity to offer our customers unparalleled solutions for managing and using business content regardless of file type. We want to continue to expand and enhance the DAM-specific features while moving toward an integration strategy that fully meets our customers' needs," says David Glazer, Chief Technology Officer at Open Text. Artesia for DAM 6.0 begins the evolution to Open Text's recently announced Livelink ECM Services Architecture, a J2EE-based Service Oriented Architecture on which all Open Text products will be built.
