Acquia adds new Channel Portals capabilities to Acquia DAM

Acquia announced new capabilities for Acquia DAM (previously Widen), Channel Portals. They allow businesses to easily create and share branded, secure, and up-to-date digital product catalogs with individual partners to accelerate sales and ensure products are accurately represented in the market.

In-store displays, sales conversations, email promotions, and websites all require current product content. Channel Portals makes it easier for a business user to filter down a product catalog to the information and assets each group needs to market and sell the products, and then share it in an portal. Channel Portals removes the need for ad hoc spreadsheet exports and zip files of images, videos, and PDFs.

Using Channel Portals, sales teams can access product details for training purposes or create a custom portal for each dealer and distributor channel, exclusively featuring their organization’s branding, including logo, font, and colors. Customers can embed Channel Portals into a webpage or share them via a link, made public or password-protected.

In addition, Acquia released task management for product enrichment, which extends Acquia DAM’s product information management (PIM) capabilities. Task management for product enrichment allows product managers to automatically delegate tasks for writers, marketers, and creatives as new products are added to the system.

Deepnote data notebook comes out of beta

Deepnote, an early-stage startup backed by Accel and Index Ventures, launched version 1.0, opening up to the general availability of collaborative data science notebooks to data teams. Data team efficacy relies on the process of access to, exploration of, and collaboration around data—for example, when an organization needs to make a data-informed decision, it will rely on data teams to explore datasets and share insights that lead to action. This process is siloed within a single department, findings are inconsistent, and insights quickly become out of date. Deepnote makes data collaboration a reality improving three pain points of traditional data science notebooks:

  1. Collaboration: Sharing analysis and collaboration is as easy as sending a link because everything is hosted in a fully-managed cloud environment. Analysis is done in real-time with multiplayer mode if needed. And everything is organized and hosted in a single place.
  2. Connectivity: With dozens of native integrations to tools in the modern data stack—Snowflake, BigQuery, Postgres, S3, GitHub—data teams can seamlessly connect to the tools they’re already using.
  3. Productivity: Underserved data analysts and scientists are now equipped with productivity features—reproducibility, autocomplete, scheduling, version control—to do better work in less time.
