Lessons learned about digital asset management (DAM) from early adoptersThere is bad news and good news for the growing numbers of organizations that are turning to digital asset management (DAM) solutions to handle the torrent of photographs, video, and other rich media that are playing increasingly key roles in their operations.
 
The bad news is that many organizations can find themselves overwhelmed by the daunting array of tools, capabilities, and options that are offered by the latest DAM technologies. The good news is that those newcomers to DAM can turn to a growing number of experts who are emerging from their experiences as early adopters of digital asset management.
 
In an industry as young as digital asset management those experts are sometimes difficult to find, so we’ve written a new white paper called Lessons learned about digital asset management from early adopters that profiles the first-hand experience of Cornell University’s Global DAM administrator, Corey Chimko. Corey has been the system admin of Cornell's University Photography group for two years. As such, Corey spearheaded the implementation and setup of their DAM system and manages the day-to-day user experience of the DAM system across all departments at Cornell.
 
Key topics covered in this paper:
  • Considerations when planning for a DAM system
  • Approaching metadata and search
  • Migrating assets to a categorized structure
  • Choosing a DAM administrator
  • Strategizing user governance
  • Keeping your system up-to-date
 
This is a great piece for anyone who is looking for best practices around the who, what, and how of digital asset management. Get it here!
