When speaking with Newspaper or magazine publishers, we often hear the same complaints: For every task there seems to be a separate application and editorial staff is having a hard time locating the growing number of media files.

Right after Easter I met again with some of my former colleagues mainly from the time I worked for M&T Publishing – twelve friends having lots of pasta, red wine and fun.    Today, some of them still work as journalists or graphic designers, some work for communication and creative agencies, others are freelancers. The number of employees in their companies ranges from 1 to 34.   As usual, we soon started to discuss current developments in the media and communications world. This time it was interesting to hear that all share the same problem – how to manage the ever increasing number of mostly large media files, their digital assets.

It's rare that I cannot follow a discussion on a particular topic. No matter what your opinion is you can usually empathize with the reasons that made up the different minds involved in the discussion.    However, there is currently a debate in the media world, which I can hardly understand.
