The ABI Research press release from September 3, 2008 gives mention to a lingering confusion about the definition of digital asset management.  ABI Research Analyst, Zippy Aima cautioned “There is still a lack of clarity around defining the system.  DAM Systems are often confused with ECMs. Currently, DAM is considered to be a subset of enterprise content management (ECM).”
