Cumulus and SharePoint Work In Tandem
Canto offers an integration between Cumulus and SharePoint and with it you can enjoy the benefits of SharePoint and digital asset management. These systems work together to improve team workflows and performance.
As you can see from the diagram below, the integration between Cumulus and SharePoint enables different teams within organizations to use the DAM as a central location for their assets while simultaneously allowing them to use SharePoint. This is the best of both worlds – you get more functionality like easy sharing and central storage for large assets plus SharePoint workflows.
Search, download, and distribute digital assets in Cumulus – without leaving SharePoint.
Accelerate and Simplify Processes
Cumulus optimizes the approval processes around your digital assets. Use Cumulus as the central storage system for your SharePoint to help your team focus on work rather than waste time searching for the right image, video or document.
After selecting an asset from the search results, the Cumulus-SharePoint user has the option to download the asset for further use. The Cumulus server retrieves and stores the original data set. It’s also possible to open an asset in an external web application.
The Cumulus and SharePoint integration helps you collaborate.
SharePoint Communicates With the Cumulus Integration Platform
The Canto Integration Platform (CIP) is a module for Cumulus that allows communication with third parties. Files and information can be exchanged between Cumulus and other systems (which use HTTP Web services), regardless of which third-party system is used and which programming language is used. This means that Cumulus can be flexibly extended at any time.
CIP provides both read and write access to Cumulus and is divided into several services that allow the handling of assets, their metadata, thumbnails and previews as well as the search, sorting and filtering of data sets. Detailed API documentation provides a quick introduction into the possibilities of the interface.
