Digital Asset Management: Who is Preserving Our Digital Legacy?

shutterstock_79347715.jpg No one is arguing that we aren't an increasingly digital culture, both at work and at home. The digital assets that we create for business, personal and educational purposes are quickly replacing the books, tapes, CDs, newspapers and magazines that most of us grew up with.

DAM Irony and the Evolving Ecosystem

Back in the early days of Digital Asset Management, one of the major benefits touted was the advantage of all your digital assets in a single place. The ability to collect, manage and organize digital media in a single repository was huge.

The Road to Digital Asset Management

shutterstock_58984612.jpg In my practice and within my profession, I am often asked where DAM is headed and what needs to be done to foster a greater sense of community. In the DAM course I teach at San Jose State University, I empower my students with the knowledge that community is created by action and shared beliefs, and DAM is no different to this.

How to Maximize the Potential of Localized Marketing

Other findings of the survey reveal the importance that marketers place on localized marketing and demonstrate that more work is needed to make localized marketing effective.

The Time for DAM in Customer Experience is Now

shutterstock_92850838.jpg The intersections of Digital Asset Management (DAM) and Customer eXperience Management (CXM or CEM) is an overwhelmingly understudied and underutilized area -- both in theory, and more so in practice. While it is evident that rich media can play a tremendous role in enhancing customer interactions and overall experience, we are not thinking, doing and talking enough about the use cases, specific product features, processes or strategies for employing DAM under the CXM umbrella.

This Week: The Rise of DAM + Optimizing Web Experiences

Our Digital Asset Management (DAM) Tweet Jam was a great success this week. The group worked to define what DAM means today and then dove into strategy, opportunities and the relationship between DAM and Customer Experience Management (CXM).

The views were varied, the insights great. Read the Tweet Jam Summary to get more info or if you're brave check out the full Tweet Jam archive.

Complimenting a great Tweet Jam, we examined the role of DAM in a series of new articles:

DAM in the Enterprise: What Does it Do, Where Does it Belong?

shutterstock_58670884.jpg As this past week's Tweet Jam showed, while the uses and demands on digital asset management (DAM) have evolved, the foundation remains the same: intelligently managing, distributing and delivering rich media assets. While there is disagreement about where it fits in the enterprise, there is consensus that it is time to take DAM out of its silo and integrate it more fully with other workflows.

We also heard about how ads are reaching us everywhere we go, learned some questions to ask to spur creative thinking and were introduced to fuzzy logic which I admit, I am still a little fuzzy about.

Tweet Jam Recap: Is DAM the Future of Customer Experience? #CXMChat

There is definitely more to digital asset management than meets the eye. That became very apparent during yesterday’s #CXMChat in which we dissected Digital Assets & the Customer Experience.

To discuss digital asset management with a host of enterprise thought leaders, digital marketing professionals, self-described technology geeks, web developers and leading digital asset vendors is like peeling back the layers of an onion -- it’s so complex, it stings your eyes to think about it all. Fortunately, we’re here to sift through the skins to make sense of it all.

The Decline of the DAM System and The Rise of the DAM Solution

shutterstock_91435838.jpg Before getting into the main discussion points of this article, it is perhaps worth reviewing where we are in the overall DAM product life-cycle. I would argue that not only are we well into the growth stage of DAM, but that the maturity phase is in prospect in the medium term also.

With these capabilities come new requirements that are changing the way publishers work with their rich media assets.

DAM Evolves into a Key CXM Technology

“What is digital asset management (DAM)?” This is by far the most common question that comes up in Forrester’s DAM-related inquiries. In part, it’s because the DAM term is going to quickly become antiquated.
