DAM 101: What you Need to Start your DAM

April 14, 11:50 AM

The decision to implement a DAM system is the right step in the right direction to gain operational and intellectual control of your digital assets and is to be taken very seriously.

DAM bestows great responsibility for how the organization’s assets will be managed efficiently and effectively in its daily operations and is essential for growth.  All successful DAM implementations require more than just new technology. Success requires a firm digital strategy foundation that begins with the business, and then extends to the technology. 

This engaging session will outline what you need to start your DAM from the business case onwards, to selecting the right team, to business goals, and to the foundations of DAM: Content, Metadata, Taxonomy, Workflow, Rights Management, Digital Preservation, UX/UI, and Governance.

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!
