We understand also that this is asingle sign onmovement of assets from MediaBeacon into WCM.
Currently, they are showing as an exhibitor at the event.
If true, this is a major leap forward for MB straight off the back of theirGoogle IO appearance courtesy of the The U.S. Navy Visual News Service.
Good for them and good for the larger Digital Asset Management community also.
