There are significant advantages to hosting your DAM in a cloud, but there are many factors that you must consider when deciding whether a hosted DAM solution works for your organization. In this webinar we will provide a description and overview of the different DAM hosting models including cloud-based, on-premises, and hybrid structures. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each hosting solution, and we will look at a hypothetical use-case in which we will compare cost and resource needs among the different hosting models. This webinar will not evaluate or compare specific DAM vendor products, but it will provide information to aid you in the selection of a DAM hosting model.

Questions this webinar will help address:

  • What are the benefits of hosting your DAM in a cloud?
  • What hosting/cloud models are available?
  • What factors must you consider when deciding to host your DAM system in a cloud?

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
