This is the fifth video in the series of Widen customer interviews with Augusto Rovegno, Business Development & Programming Manager, at HSM – organizer of the World Business Forum and World Innovation Forum. In this video, Augusto talks about scoping the digital asset management project. They started by bringing to the table what they had in mind, what the project plan was, and a whole different range of ideas of uses and general variations of the project.
He talks about starting with the parts of the project that they had in mind, what parts they weren't sure were doable, and then determining what parts were worth doing. They reviewed all of these considerations with the people at Widen, including the project managers, sales team, and all the different people involved in getting the project together. This is where HSM was able to clear a lot of doubts and learn more about things that they didn't know were possible. Augusto goes on to explain that once they uncovered what was possible, the project quickly scaled into working through the essentials of what they wanted to get done and started looking into the different possibilities and ways of executing the project.
One of the main issues HSM faced while implementing a digital asset management solution was that their time frame was very rapid and the main concern was the possibility of not meeting the very strict deadlines. Augusto goes on to explain how they looked at numerous possibilities and ways of carrying out the project in order to meet realistic deadlines. They went through different technical solutions and ways of accomplishing the goals at each stage of the project. The best way for HSM was not rushing through the implementation phases to just get it done and do it bad, but doing it properly in appropriate time.
