Frankly, my dear, we've got a better DAM

The Story

The journey began in 2018. At Kablamo, we were observing ongoing customer frustration with existing Digital Asset Management (DAM) software offerings. These frustrations with regular DAMs are common across most legacy platforms and include: large up-front licenses costs, overselling of basic features, inflexible storage solutions and “feature-waste”.

“Beware the Do-Everything DAM” became our motto. So Kablamo committed to developing something better: we decided to build our own, simple to understand and easy to use solution.

Underpinned by AWS cloud, and built using Kablamo’s expertise in media data, DAME™ (Digital Asset Management Experience) is a highly customisable, modular cloud-based Digital Asset Management platform. The pre-built software platform enables Kablamo to accelerate the time to market and to reduce costs for our customers’ digital product development journeys.

The Result

Kablamo designed, developed and built a software product, DAME™, which utilises Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver an advanced, truly modular cloud-based DAM solution. As we built it from the ground up, we could include all the components that are lacking from other DAM solutions. DAMson™ is built to embrace change: it is quick to customise, easy to support and it can be extended for new features and workflows effortlessly.

DAME™ can store multiple types of media, in sizes up to 5tb, with enriched meta-information sourced from both internal and external locations. Media types can include existing asset archives, existing DAMS, physical storage and systems, or content imported directly through APIs. We have built the platform with enterprise-grade requirements in mind.

Technology

AWS Cloud Solution: Using the best tools for the job is key to building a flexible and stable DAM platform. AWS is the chosen base plate, as it provides the greatest breadth and maturity in its cloud offering. Modern cloud application development principles allow greater adaptability as new cloud service offerings become available, and effective pricing that continually decreases.

Machine Learning: DAMson™ consumes the latest in cloud artificial intelligence and machine learning services, including those offered by AWS. These services include Rekognition for object and face detection, Transcribe for speech to text and Comprehend for sentiment analysis.

APIs: DAMson™ is built to consume data and be plugged into your existing platforms and services via a concise set of easy-to-understand cloud-based and secure API endpoints.
