Connected assets is a long-awaited feature by many enterprise customers of AEM. Customers that have their separate central DAM (Digital asset Management) for assets and different instance for Sites. Connected assets also called as remote dam allows seamless access to a centralized DAM for search, drag & drop, save and publish remote assets from your AEM sites instance.
