I am in the market for a content and media asset management system.

I don't want the system to publish. I want it to manage.

I have programmers for the front-end. I have a localization department for translations.

What I need is a system that will allow me to manage content and media assets from multiple sources, departments and business units. I want this stored on a sever (preferably a database and/or cache) and then have that content retrieved by the dynamic PHP pages.

Setting out, this didn't seem too big of a challenge. I can't be the first person in the world who needs this - but nothing I've found so far meets my needs.

Information/Assets I need stored are:

- Page Titles
- Meta descriptions
- Text (including in-text links)
--fields for headings and sub headings
--title field for links
- Images (also thumbnails)
-- alt tags per image (and thumbnail)
-- title field for images
- Videos (different formats)

The ability to alter and add/remove content and fields would be a huge plus.

So far all I can come up with is using wordpress and about 432 workarounds. Not my ideal solution.

Client has a fair budget, but open source is a plus.

Any tips?

This sounds like the type of project I would use Zope2 for: [zope2.zope.org...]

The Zope Application server uses an object database, which lets you define various attributes for each class of documents.

thanks for the tip. that hadn't popped up on my radar :)

I have no experience with ModX - would that be another alternative to check out?

I'm open to testing different scenarios, and then having the programmers boil it down to a short list. My focus isn't usability for content managers and publishers, but rather on performance.
