Optimizing your DAM Program

Very soon after a DAM system is installed managers must ask:

  • What more could I do?
  • What more do I need?
  • When should I consider updating / upgrading?

After just a year or two, more new questions are asked:

  • How can we make the system better?
  • How do we evolve into a full enterprise program?
  • How should we develop a roadmap towards integration with the broader MarTech stack?
  • What else can we do to take our DAM to the next level?

And if the questions are not asked, or asked and left unanswered for years, they must be posed anew and, this time, answered – with the answers implemented.⠀

In this five-part series, led by Theresa Regli, we cover how to evolve a DAM system from a siloed application to a core enterprise capability and lynchpin for marketing technology success.

DAM technology is foundational to the larger enterprise marketing stack, and the puzzle of fitting together the best mix of technologies becomes ever more complex. In this session, we address questions such as:​

  • Do you have the right system in place? How do you know if you do or do not?
  • How can you prioritize integration points for your DAM system?
  • Are you taking full advantage of the functionality of your DAM?
  • How can you increase capacity and improve infrastructure for scalability and growth?
  • How should you go about system replacement, if you need to?

Session 3: Data

We've all heard that a DAM is only as good as its metadata. But, Assets + Metadata is only part of the equation. In this session we delve into:

  • The differences between and best practice for taxonomy, metadata models, and keywords
  • How to assess what data you need from other enterprise systems to achieve higher levels of asset findability and automation
  • Using analytics; not just what's happening in the DAM system itself, but new trends in mashing-up data from multiple systems to assess asset performance
  • New developments in artificial intelligence, and practical applications for its use as you evolve your DAM

What used to be just "workflow" is now a much more complex ecosystem of touchpoints. Instrumental to evolving your DAM system and the surrounding technologies includes:

  • Overcoming the limitations of DAM system workflow tools
  • DAM vs. WIP vs. standalone workflow management tools vs. MRM
  • Solving process challenges with technology vs. just applying good, old fashioned governance
