An important part of any DAM strategy is tracking digital rights. Simply finding a digital asset is not enough: users need to know how that asset can be reused without violating copyright and licensing restrictions. Digital rights metadata is complex and highly variable, making it extremely difficult to store in many DAM systems. This webinar will discuss the advantages of using new semantic technologies to manage digital rights metadata.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • Common techniques and limitations of storing digital rights data in a DAM
  • Common digital rights data points
  • Key concepts in semantic technology
  • How to model digital rights semantically
  • Demonstration of querying digital rights metadata in a DAM

Exploring a Stumbling Block to DAM Technology Adoption - Getting Everyone On-Board for Optimal Deployment

Seeking better management of all their digital assets and with great expectations organizations around the world purchase and deploy DAM technology solutions. Successful implementation requires that the people working in the organization embrace the change. This is often a real challenge.

DAM solutions provide terrific benefits and can readily deliver attractive and, importantly, measurable ROIs. However all too often, and unnecessarily so, implementation fails to deliver the expected ROI. In the worst of cases it may become a White Elephant. One can see the same software from the same vendor installed in similar organizations with dramatically different outcomes. In this webinar we address many of the underlying reasons why this happens. Most often it is down to how the issues of adoption and change management have been handled.

In this webinar we will focus on how organizations can avoid the stumbling blocks and bring its people along for the complete journey.

Join our webinar panelists as they discuss the challenges faced and the solutions deployed that ensure effective adoption of new DAM technologies and how to bring about a new way of doing business.

They will address:

  • Factors that inhibit broad user adoption of a new DAM solution.
  • How user experiences impact adoption.
  • What it takes to get a successful deployment going, knowing full well that DAM is enterprise software and that there is a need for the deployment of a battery of structured change management techniques.
  • Best practices and processes utilized to ensure trust and adoption.
  • Complications that arise when organizations and key stakeholders are decentralized and the change management practices that help to mitigate the risks.
  • Governance models business owners can put in place to measure and drive adoption.
  • How to keep projects going and growing.
