Silicon Connector for OpenText Media Manager enables Adobe Creative Cloud workflows
OpenText Media Manager ("OTMM") is perhaps the premiere Enterprise DAM. Widely used in major film studios and corporate Marketing departments, OTMM has established a solid reputation in the DAM space.
Yet on its own, OTMM provides no direct connectivity to Adobe Creative Cloud applications. This is understandable, as Adobe InDesign does not readily
link InDesign documents to
assets stored in the Cloud: it only supports digital assets on the local
file system or network. InDesign is too locally focused to see your
assets on OpenText out of the box.
Silicon Connector fixes that, by linking InDesign to OpenText simply
and automatically. Beyond URL-based links to OpenText assets from InDesign, Connector
enables access to OpenText from directly within Photoshop and Illustrator.
Simplicity is Sophistication
Before Silicon Connector, Adobe InDesign users had to link assets to an
InDesign document locally, but when sharing outside of the network,
they had to package the entire project as well as all the assets,
creating redundant copies. This resulted in
mass duplication of assets, long file transfers and versioning issues,
challenges that were only compounded when sharing projects with multiple
remote resources such as consultants, design houses or agencies.
With Connector, these barriers to collaboration are removed: everyone on
your InDesign team shares assets via OpenText. Update an asset in OpenText, and
the updated content automatically references the latest versions.
