Working on the development on new DAMS at UofT Canopus - it is now in production!
One of our issues has been lots of different platforms and keeping track of all of it and think/plan/address in a uniform way, tried to centralize, but there were always technical issues - scaling, suitability - Moved towards a DAMS model
Steve gave a demo of Canopus DAMS, showing the interface and discussed some of the reasoning behind the technical decisions
The DAMS is controlled by a series of APIs that do various tasks including retrieval, renaming, etc. If you need to pull all files from a collection, you can retrieve via identifier etc. through the API and show location etc.
The DAMS has enabled an analysis dashboard in kibana that provides counts of files, size, breakdown of types
This has been developed with Scholars Portal because it is a problem facing the whole OCUL community
