Enabling an Out-of-the-box (Simple Content) Repository for Storing Images in SAP Marketing Cloud
With the SAP Marketing Cloud 1902 release, we are excited to announce the availability of simple content repository feature. This simple content repository feature enables you to choose images from your local drive and upload images to a simple content repository.
This feature enables you (as a marketer) to upload images directly from Content Studio while designing marketing content. These images are then also available to any email recipient when they choose to open an email in their respective email clients. It is also possible to map the repository to any Content Delivery Network (CDN) provider like Akamai CDN for efficient delivery of marketing content.
If you also have a marketing administrator role on SAP Marketing Cloud, you can use the Content Repository Configuration app to enable simple content repository feature and maintain the configured CDN Domain name in the app. For more information, see: Configure Simple Content Repository.
Generally, enterprises these days depend on CDN for efficient content delivery over internet, whether it is general web content, higher resolution images and promotional videos, and especially for a web-shop supporting business.
Before you proceed with this set-up, check with your IT Administrator, the IT landscape and get to know the CDN which may, likely, or already be used.
You can choose from a vast array of CDN providers. If you are looking at global presence, then you could go with Akamai, MaxCDN, AWS CloudFront, Cloudflare, Edgecast, Fastly, or choose among many others.
The set-up is simple and should be complete in a day or two, for both configurations on CDN provider’s console and in SAP Marketing Cloud, below.
Here’s a list of the some of the quick help links from different CDN providers:
