Almhttp://alm.axiell.com/collections-management-solutions/technology/mimsy-xg/YesYesYesYesYesNoYesYesYesNoNoNoNoYesYesYesYesMimsy is java based and has Windows and Mac clients. However, it works better on Windows as its default is to store references to external files using Windows paths. The Windows client supports clicking directly through to files but the Mac client doesn't. It's possible to set up a webserver to translate paths but that's extra work for the institution, or requires additional support. No API out of the box (but one is listed as an add-on in marketing materials), but can query underlying database with SQL tools.

CollectiveAccesshttp://www.collectiveaccess.org/YesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesNoNoNoYesYesYesNoYesYesOpinion from user "Peter B.": "Please do not ever ever ever (!) use CollectiveAccess for anything.
I've now spent (=wasted) over a year of my life trying to make it work. Their code base is broken beyond repair, which causes almost any corner/feature of it be incredibly unreliable. Also: Importing relationship type terms is not possible - and the importer code is also broken for nested hierarchies, etc. PLEASE DO NOT USE IT! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me."

DSpacehttp://www.dspace.org/NoYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesA lot of these are Yes with a programmer, No without. (At least out of the box, not hosted/supported externally.)

2017-08-11 Bram Luyten response: As a 10 year DSpace user, committer and DSpace service provider, I'm obviously biased here with all my hats, but I can't help to think that the above statement is somewhat unfair, especially with the most recent releases of the platform.
However, there IS without a doubt an enormous amount of added value that a service provider or a programmer can add to your DSpace, or to ANY platform that at least allows some flexibility: in-depth customization of the look and feel, integration with your custom on-campus systems and SSO, complicated batch ingests from legacy systems ...

Mimsy (Axiell)

NoEhhhhYesNoEhhhhYesYesYesYesYesYesNoNoNoEhhhhYesNoYesNot very sophistocated when you get past the basic DAMs functions (search, store, discover). Integration with other platforms is managed entirely by the supplier so not very flexible. Storage of video is rudimentary.
