DAM New York 2020

The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


John Florance

DAM Practice Manager


John has been managing and designing production workflows for over twenty years. He got his start in publishing by helping businesses and associations move from typesetting into desktop publishing. This led to careers centered around database publishing, process color separating, XML-based editorial workflows and eventually, digital asset management. Media asset management is his platform of choice for developing digital workflows built on top of a variety of disruptive technologies. Today, John consults on media management as part of Risetime, a Chicago-based company that specializes in managed services on both public and private clouds. Customers range from consumer product companies, pharma, M&E and electronics manufacturers. Through close collaboration with clients and experienced development partners, Risetime both designs best in class digital workflows and rescues struggling DAMs. He also is one of the founders of the Artesia and Media Manager User Community, comprised of DAM professionals that use the OpenText DAM products and is the co-founder of the Midwest Digital Asset Managers Meetup.

Before attending a HS DAM event, I never knew the true impact or importance of DAM. For the first time it felt like I wasn't alone, but part of something so much greater. I left inspired and motivated to take what I had learned and apply it our DAM system. I look forward to the event every year!

The Henry Stewart DAM NY conference did not disappoint. The breadth of topics and experiences covered were amazing.  I could have used three of me to cover all the sessions I was interested in attending!
