Last week I got to spend time with Jon Snow, Mr. Peanut, and some monster trucks – thanks to spending a day at one of the regular OpenText™ Media Management User Group Meetings. This gathering of Digital Asset Management aficionados was kindly hosted by HBO at their building in mid-town New York. As well as the use of their impressive theater we also got to enjoy some great views of The Empire State Building from the top floor location.
Customers like HBO, Kraft-Heinz, Monster Energy, and others, shared how they use the Open Text Media Management (OTMM) platform as the core of their digital marketing and content channel distribution (you can see us in the photo at the top of this blog). In these meetings each customer brings new perspectives and insights on building business cases, implementation, usage, and extending the use of DAM across the enterprise.
Another highlight of the day was the opportunity for the customers and partners in attendance to hear, and see, what is in the recent Release 16 version of OTMM, and ask detailed questions of the product team. The session was highly interactive with great questions, observations, and some impressive feature demos. Overall everyone seemed very impressed by what they saw of the latest release.
These single day User Groups are a great place to network with industry peers and find out what other people are doing with a technology solution; as well as get ‘under the covers’ with the folks who are developing the software.
We’ll be taking this approach to a whole new level at the upcoming OpenText™ Enterprise World conference in Nashville the week of July 11. The focus for Enterprise World 2016 will be to provide more informative and detailed technical sessions, alongside customer case studies, making it the most informative user conference to date.
For example, the OpenText Media Management specific sessions on offer in Nashville include:
- Best Practices and tips for a Scalable, Secure and Performance Tuned Media Management Platform
- Media Management – System Monitoring, Troubleshooting, and Logging.
- Creating custom widgets and transformers in Media Management
- How to Leverage the new Adaptive Media Delivery features in V16 to publish assets to your WCM
And that’s just a small selection of more than 20 sessions around the Customer Experience Suite and the 200 plus breakout sessions, roundtables, labs, and demos on offer across the whole OpenText portfolio.
Enterprise World 2016 is a must attend event for anyone in the Customer Experience and Media Management world.
