The 2022 Metadata Roadshow

In this series, we’ll explore DAMs that are delivering the objectives of metadata as one of the principal foundations of your DAM.

Metadata is the foundation of DAM, and digital strategy. You want your assets to be discovered, they want to be found, and they want to be used. Good metadata is essential for meeting these objectives.

Over four sessions, you will learn how technology is helping you manage your metadata and digital assets easier and better. 

The series, led by John Horodyski covers and includes:

  • New approaches and best practices in DAM metadata management
  • Case Studies and examples of real-world metadata best practice
  • Healthily rigorous Q&As in every session

Workflow is best described as the sequence of processes through which content passes from creation to production, ending with distribution. Good metadata powers that process.

This session focuses on unlocking the potential of metadata in your DAM to: 

  • Ingest, discover, share 
  • Distribute assets through a strategic design of your asset lifecycle
  • Speed approvals, deliver better asset tracking and ensure compliance
