Deinze, OV, Belgium, 2009/03/10 - ADAM Software released ADAM 4.4 – the latest version of its enterprise Digital Asset Management platform. Next to known strengths such as infinite taxonomy, robust media workflows, all format support.
With the release of ADAM 4.4 both customers and system integrators benefit from:
Introduction of Classification Mappings automatically catalog records in standardized classification structures, such as UNSPSC or eCl@ss, based on your internal classification structure. Using a single global classification system offers company-wide visibility of spend analysis, cost-effective procurement optimization and full exploitation of electronic commerce capabilities. ADAM Classification Mappings offers a semantic Web environment by means of formalizations into ontologies.
Introduction of HTML Fields for storing rich metadata, supporting formatted text as well as all common HTML tags. Users can freely create and edit rich content without requiring any knowledge of HTML. This rich content formatting creates a consistent look and feel for feeding e-commerce websites or online catalogues.
Up to 300% performance improvements in complex searching, loading images and retrieving record and classification information.
The Maintenance Job Log framework has been redesigned and its user interface greatly improved for easier and more efficient troubleshooting. Administrators will benefit from a centralized overview of the maintenance and ordering log and the easy method to analyze and filter the log.
Introducing ADAM Data Source Controls for ASP.NET allowing developers to use standard ASP.NET or even third party web controls to build custom websites on ADAM. This greatly minimizes the need for code behind when developing custom websites and studios that interact with the ADAM Engine for retrieving, displaying, updating and creating data.
The benefits of this new approach are:
• no more need for writing code for common ADAM interactions;
• all standard ASP.NET controls can be used when creating custom websites and studios;
• support for third-party controls, such as DevXpress, Telerik.
“The introduction of the ADAM Data Source controls for an established platform as Microsoft ASP.NET secures our client’s investment and offers system integrators an error free rapid development environment. Next to drastically reducing the amount of code writing it gives clients the ability to choose for intuitive interfaces fed by rich media on top of ADAM.” concludes Pieter Casneuf, partner of ADAM Software.
ADAM 4.4 is available for ADAM partners in the download center from now.
