There are many solutions to choose from for clous/SaaS based DAM. Once you start pricing though, it becomes clear that you can get storage cheaper almost anywhere else – often one tenth the price – but most solutions are bundled. However, you can get DAM functionality and get you storage from someone who is competitive in that arena.
This is precisely why Otec Solutions started working with pics.io last year. They have a DAM solution with the type of functionality required by DAM users but they don’t sell you the storage. The DAM system connects you to your own google drive. So, whatever great deal you or your company have with Google, it is completely leveraged by pics.io and you aren’t locked into whatever they want to do. Google has to compete with the world and will always be competitive.
One other advantage of this model is that you are always in control of your files because they are on your Google Drive. If you decide to change vendors, there is no requirement to extract all of your data in the process because it is on your Google Drive.
