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

Wednesday, October 22, 2014.

9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET for 60 minutes.

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.

Turning Semantic Metadata Into (More) Gold

Wednesday November 5th, 2014

9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET for 60 minutes.

Metadata is more important than ever. It drives the digital business, enables content re-use and efficiency and has an impact on every part of the business from content creation to delivery - there truly is gold in them there tags.

But like any gold rush, metadata usage is exploding and traditional approaches can't keep up with the complexity and diversity of metadata created and needed for every use - but what if there was a way to accurately manage the critical metadata while delivering the accuracy and complexity needed?

In this one hour webinar MarkLogic colleagues Matt Turner and Diane Burley will be "talking triples" -- the components of semantic data modeling -- and how semantic metadata solves that really toothy problem - how to manage the complexity of metadata while maintaining the accuracy needed in today's digital marketplaces.

What you will learn:

  • How metadata is impacting digital media today
  • Why defining metadata relationships is currently near impossible with traditional technology
  • Key concepts in semantic technology
  • How semantic metadata - stored with binaries and documents - yields even more power and gold!

Join us for a lively 1 hour discussion on the latest metadata technique for the digital gold rush!
