25
Mimsy (Axiell)http://www.lookatmedam.com.au/NoEhhhhYesNoEhhhhYesYesYesYesYesYesNoNoNoEhhhhYesYesNot 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. [I'd add that enhancement, above and beyond, remains necessary to suit GLAMS sector requirements.]
26
http://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.

52
DSpacehttp://www.dspace.org/NoYes0YesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesYesA 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 ...
