Rebuttal: Do Users Want A Self-Service DAM - Or A DAM Servant?

Ed Smith recently wrote an article for CMSWire, "My Other DAM is a Self-Service Intranet Portal," comparing DAM systems to self-service petrol stations where drivers can fill up their cars themselves. While Ed makes some good points, my own experience suggests that self-service isn't a stop and pump solution.

My Other DAM is a Self-Service Intranet Portal

gas_attendant_shutterstock_90537463.jpgRunning a digital asset management system without a self-service DAM intranet portal is like buying gas in Oregon -- the “drivers” (end users) must rely on an “attendant” (a person in charge of managing digital assets) just to get to work.

Weekend Reading: In Social Business - Context is Everything

shutterstock_93816259.jpgThe Jain legend of the blind men and the elephant came up at this week's Dachis Social Business Summit during David Gray's presentation. 

The story goes a little like this: six blind men are led up to an elephant, each left in front of a different part. One man feels the tail and says, "It's a rope." Another feels the ear and says, "It's a fan."  You get the idea. The story is usually told to show the value of collective intelligence, but I think it works for many of this week's articles as well. 

If you segment and analyze your data without keeping in mind the bigger context, you lose value. If you search for information in your DAM system and it's missing context, your results will be irrelevant. If technology continues to explode at a pace faster than people can adapt to, we run the risk of losing perspective on its place in our lives. 

Curious? Read on.

No matter how many different ways you restate your points, it’s clear that meaningful communication is not what’s taking place. What goes on between a DAM and a DAM user often feels much like this.
