If the vendor operates through a sales channel they may use intermediaries who have regional focus or additional specialisms in a given vertical market.
This refers to the type of licence the DAM system software is supplied under. Proprietary means that the developer restricts access to the source code (the instructions used to generate the software). Open source means that the developer provides full access to the code so you can modify it yourself. Split model is hybrid and means they may offer both options with some restrictions removed (or added) depending on the model chosen. If split is selected, it is advisable to verify the differences with the vendor.
Split OS and Proprietary
TACTIC is available to companies under the Eclipse Public License, an OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved open source license. For companies, institutions and organizations that prefer or require commercial licenses, Southpaw offers a commercial license for TACTIC.
Open Source OSI Licence Used
If the vendor has indicated they offer an open source or split model licence (i.e. both open source and commercial options) then for the open source element, they should be able to provide an OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved licence. If one is not specified, their product may not be genuinely open source.
Eclipse Public License - v 1.0
Open Source Component Usage Notes
CherryPy, Apache, Postgres, SQLite, Python are used in the TACTIC platform.
Software Delivery MethodsHybrid
Google Drive Applications Integration
DAM users whose organisations provide the Google Drive application suite (Docs, Slides, Sheets etc) may need to search for digital assets without having to switch to their DAM system interface. This question aims to find out whether that is possible with a vendor's product.
