Jack McGannon, CEO, Canto
Continue Canto’s Steady Growth
Since its founding in the 1990s, Canto has turned into a full-blown business software innovator. Our flagship product, Cumulus, has evolved from a single-user desktop program into a full-scale and highly-extensible enterprise digital asset management system. Our completely new, cloud-based product, Flight, has quickly turned into a highly-popular digital asset management solution for teams.
In 2017 we want to keep up our ongoing growth from previous years by focusing on what we do best – adding value to our customers as a reliable partner by offering the best digital asset management solutions to meet their needs.
The Best DAM Solutions Are Integrated
Cumulus is the leading enterprise digital asset management – not only because of its flexibility and rich features but because of our technology partnerships with global tech innovators. We believe in a best-of-breed approach and every company should be able to chose the right toolset for their needs. Our open APIs support this highly flexible and individualized approach.
In 2017 we will strengthen our technical partnerships for the benefit of our users. One of our most recent additions has been a new version of the Cumulus Video Cloud powered by Brightcove as well as new integrations to e-Spirit and Sitecore CMS systems. Both Flight and Cumulus have sophisticated integrations to Adobe InDesign. We will continue to develop integrations and partnerships this year.
We Connect With Customers to Exchange DAM Best Practices
Last year our partners, customers and team members traveled tens of thousands of miles to attend digital asset management events as well as host our own Canto DAM Summit user conferences. We do this because we believe in fostering personal relationships with our community. We have been working with many of you for years and have a long-term partnership based on trust and reliability. And many others are new to the fold. In 2017 we want to continue to build and strengthen our personal interactions with you – to learn from each other and exchange ideas face-to-face. We’ll host an exciting Canto DAM Summit Americas in San Francisco on May 8th and another in Berlin on October 9th – 10th.
The Best DAM Solutions Solve Real Customer Problems
The digital asset management market has evolved and we have enhanced our product portfolio to reflect the market dynamics. Canto offers two great products to fit nearly every DAM scenario.
Cumulus is our solution for customers that need an enterprise DAM:
- A standard product that can be highly configured to satisfy complex scenarios and deployed how you like – on-premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid.
- A product that can easily be integrated into existing infrastructure and 3rd party systems
- A product that we can add tremendous value to through consulting and technical services we offer
- A product that can easily be extended to cover global media asset delivery with a technology based on Amazon Web Services (link to MDC)
Flight is a cloud-based solution for teams to get started in DAM:
- For teams that have outgrown basic file-sharing sites like Dropbox and Google Drive, Flight is the perfect pre-enterprise DAM solution.
- Flight is highly visual.
- It is powerful, yet simple to use, without the need for any IT support.
The Best DAM Solutions Stay Ahead of Trends
We will continue to enhance our products with innovative and sustainable technology from our Research & Development experts. Look out for new features and integrations that will facilitate the management of digital content you use across your social media channels and mobile innovations. We are also working on bringing more semantic web technologies into the mix, to optimize asset cataloging and search even further. And we will add more functionality on data analytics and reporting visualization.
