Yet, a recent CMSWire poll revealed that almost 50% of respondents use things like "shared file servers and other less wonderful practices" to manage them.

  • The compelling business drivers and use cases for Digital Asset Management (DAM)
  • Key characteristics/components of a DAM solution stack
  • Rivet Logic case studies and best practices implementing Digital Asset Management using Alfresco
  • What to consider when planning your Digital Asset Management implementation.
