Advanced Concepts in DAM: The Technology & Enterprise Touchpoints In-Depth

Wednesday May 1, 9.30 am – 12.30 pm

DAM is no longer a silo: it’s part of a broader content or marketing hub of varied applications. This tutorial is for those who want to take their knowledge of DAM to a more expert level. You may have a few years of experience with a DAM technology, want to benchmark your implementation vs. industry best practice, or you’re looking to understand how DAM fits into the bigger picture.

We’ll focus on the current state of what "advanced" DAM really is and the broader marketing technology ecosystem, going into the features and functions of the more complex “enterprise” grade DAM systems and how they differ. We’ll also look at how DAM fits into a marketing or content practitioner’s day-to-day tasks as you manage ongoing email, web, mobile, social media, and still even print marketing campaigns. How does DAM integrate and feed into these downstream systems? What systems do DAMs typically pull data from, and how, in order to be effective?

In this workshop, you'll get a deeper dive into the industry’s most feature-rich DAM systems, as well as the gamut of technologies for solving the broader digital marketing and content publishing puzzle.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Enterprise DAM technologies: what are the advanced features on offer that the simpler systems don't have? We'll discuss media management, rights management, artificial intelligence, image recognition, and other advanced features in-depth.
  • Digital marketing technology: what are the tools, and what do they really do?
  • Knowing fully what you shouldn't expect your DAM to do - and what adjacent or supplemental technologies you may need, or use differently.
  • What do I need to do from a project leader / practitioner perspective to bring these technologies together?
