Digital Asset Management for Enterprise Applications

A Platform Approach to Digital and Media Asset Management

Are digital assets in your organization limited to media files? Or are they core components of your business – essentially your company's intellectual property? In any case, the need for content sharing, traceability, versioning, and secure access apply in any context. 

For solution architects and developers who are building DAM applications to delight users, the best solution adapts to your business environment and connects with other content in your organization. The Nuxeo Platform helps you develop content-driven applications in a sustainable and cost-effective manner, for more connected content and processes.

The Best DAM Tool Ever: APIs

Nuxeo API

The Nuxeo Platform is built on a powerful plug-in architecture, inspired by the Eclipse Platform. The plug-ins' extension points have API interfaces, providing a clean and graceful way to add new functionality. The UI is also included as part of the platform, so the plug-in architecture allows for modification without rewriting the code. The platform also features a full and extensible set of  blazingly fast and lightweight REST APIs that can be used to integrate with other applications and services.

Authentication, Access Control, and Security


The Nuxeo Platform provides highly customizable access mechanisms to adapt to even the most stringent requirements. Out of the box functionality includes:

  • Local SQL directories or remote LDAP, Active Directory or SQL
  • Single sign-on (SSO)
  • Permission-based access control
  • Mandatory access control with security policies

Security exists at all levels of the platform, from repository-level access control checks to defensive strategies at the application level (e.g. XSS counter-measure) to pluggable authentication methods and HTTPS.

A Single Repository for All of Your Content

Content does not exist in a vacuum. Too often, DAM initiatives are isolated within a single department and disconnected from the organization's content management solution, an opportunity to make connections that drive better processes is missed.

Single repository

When digital and media content is viewed as a set of assets for the whole organization, and is included in the overall content management strategy, processes become more efficient, transparent, and sustainable. 

A central repository for all of your content offers an inclusive, connected way of managing your assets across the enterprise. 

Customization: Adapt the Platform to Your Use Case

Nuxeo Studio

From simply adding your company logo to your application to more advanced content model and workflow configuration, Nuxeo Studio provides the complete environment to help you adapt the Nuxeo Platform to your use case quickly and easily. A cornerstone of the Nuxeo Connect subscription service, Nuxeo Studio is a hosted graphical customization and configuration environment, enabling you to focus on the functional and technical requirements of your application, without the complexity of coding or installing yet another tool.
