Widen teams are participating in several live events this month, so our wheels will be greased as we look forward to Confab Central next week, May 20-22. We're gaining momentum and ready for more! Confab Central is a great content strategy conference, and we are excited to attend, host a customer appreciation dinner and lead an educational breakout session all about digital asset management (DAM).
Confab Central is sold out for the third year in a row, which means both Jake and I couldn’t be more excited to attend and cheer on Widen customer, Corey Chimko from Cornell University and Widen team member, Sam Schnepf, as they co-present, "Making Digital Asset Management a Success,” at 1:50 p.m. on Friday, May 22, 2015.
Corey’s success in setting up and maintaining Cornell’s digital asset management system and managing it on a day-to-day basis is a story to be shared with much to learn from. Corey’s experience and ability to share strategies and best practices makes him a perfect teacher to lead this session. Sam will also be there to answer any questions and weigh in throughout the session!
This valuable breakout session will cover:
- Best practices for metadata, search and user governance in digital asset management
- How to migrate existing assets from disparate locations to a centralized DAM system
- The role and characteristics of a good DAM administrator
- How to maintain your DAM system and keep your users engaged
In addition to learning about great tools, practices and ideas in and around DAM during the conference sessions, we also welcome any Widen customers in the area to join us for an appreciation and networking dinner the evening of Thursday, May 21. As always, we love any opportunity to get together and share a little quality face-time with our customers. Let us know if you are free and would like to join us!
