DAM frontend build using Google Drive
Professional Services Firm (Big four)
Our client had a Google Drive-based API, and we built a DAM around it.
This client’s IT department had developed a file management proprietary API based on Google Drive. The client’s creative department asked us to build a PoC of a DAM, based on their API.
TL;DR: We built a DAM…
It was a 90% of the work was on the frontend, which really made us appreciate the functionality of a file explorer. UX was very important (as users were migrating from their very comfy network shares) so we tried to emulate standard file management tools as much as possible.
The other 10% was spent on extending the client’s API with some cool additional features, plus integrating the DAM with Workfront so that project folders were created and metadata synched with their online management software.
