Challenge: A stable and secure system with an SAP interface

Before the Baden-Württemberg State Media Center decided to use easydb , the worst case scenario occurred: the image management provider dam was insolvent and bugs could no longer be fixed. There was a data loss. Reason enough to take a close look at the tender. The Programmfabrik was selected from over ten applicants. The central requirement was a stable and secure system with an interface to SAP.

Solution: easydb . digitalasset

Today the LMZ uses two easydb : The regular inventory is stored internally via easydb . digitalasset is developed and managed. With the connector, teachers use media research from 3 databases. The geo-data module can be used to display the locations where images were taken on a map. Part of the inventory can be researched openly on the Internet via the media shop and can be viewed in low resolution with watermarks. To access the high-resolution images, you must register in the shop. These can then be activated through a direct debit payment process.
