Submission + - Enterprise Media Storage and Management

dalutong writes: "Our company, like many companies, is dealing with more and more media content: videos, audio clips, and photos. We are now facing two problems.

Second, because the files are not stored in any structured fashion, they are only available to whoever remembers where they were saved.

Sites like have made this less of a problem for individuals, but how can IT shops benefit similarly?"
