Our success with AEM Assets

A cruise line in the midst of a digital transformation process wanted to enhance customer experience by marrying their e-commerce system with AEM Assets DAM solution. With terabytes of digital assets to be managed, uploading and retrieval of content posed a major challenge.

Autowoven developed an integration between AEM Assets and SAP Hybris that allowed automatic association of product data with AEM Assets. By bringing in library science expertise and AEM development resources we developed a rich taxonomy and automatic product image tagging processes. We developed API based services for asynchronous data integration between various systems. Further, we optimized performance by enhancing caching at various levels including Akamai CDN, AEM Dispatchers and webservers.

Both desktop and mobile applications were able to leverage digital assets from AEM Assets for a rich guest experience both on and off the cruise ships.

Frequently Asked Questions about Adobe DAM Solution

You can host an image library using AEM Assets Brand Portal solution. This easily customizable portal solution can either be hosted on Azure or AWS Cloud using Adobe Managed Services or within an organization's own data center(On-premise solution). Users can upload, tag and publish content from AEM Author instance to the Brand Portal.

Adobe DAM solution is your single source for all your digital assets - images, videos, audio or other binary files. With images, you can store high resolution images in Adobe DAM repository and serve lower resolution images on demand. Preset original source images that are transformed into derivative images are called image renditions.

AEM Workflows can automate steps within a business process. For example, you may want to run a work flow on all images uploaded during the day in one batch process to transform images into a web-ready format followed by an email notification to image curators within the organization for approval

You can apply any number of keywords as metadata to an image or video. These keywords/terms can then be leveraged to quickly pull up an asset upon search. Tagging is a more thought-out, premedidated hierarchy of categorization. Tagging, synonymously called Taxonomy allows your images to be grouped according to predefined industry or product-line specific groupings. For example an image can have the keyword of "cat" but it's tagged as an "animal" because of where it sits in the image hierarchy.

When uploading original resolution assets, automatic background proccesses can be run to transform images or videos into different formats. Such automatic proccessing and subsequent tasks can be performed by AEM Workflows called rendition workflows

AEM Repository has an expandable storage. The out-of-box repository for AEM is a TarMK repository that stores files as tar files. For additional storage capabilities like in a distributed AEM environment we can switch to use a MongoDB repository instead. There's also an Amazon S3 bucket storage capability - but that requires an add-on OSGi bundle. At any given time, AEM assets allows for up to 2G of assets to be uploaded (if you are using TarMK repository). It is also recommended that you do not store more than 2000 assets at any given directory level, as performance may degrade beyond those number of nodes.
AEM Assets can be hosted either on-premise, customer's own datacenter or on an Adobe managed cloud hosting service that uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure Cloud.
AEM Assets Brand Portal is an AEM Sites based, ready-made application that provides a simple portal-like solution where users can browse, search and download assets in multiple formats.
It's a rich media content serving service from Adobe. This is different from AEM assets which is typically used for collecting, managiing and tagging assets for internal organizational needs, as opposed to delivering content to large audiences, which is what Dynamic Media offers.
