Digital Asset Management Industry Trends

shutterstock_63756370.jpgDAM user I’ve worked with in the past recently emailed asking for a few bullet points on DAM industry trends.

In this article, we’ll take a high-level look at what the core Semantic Web technologies are, why they’re different from conventional technology approaches and how they deliver tangible benefits for enterprise information management.

Managing Metadata - Any Volunteers?

Who Should Enter Metadata in Digital Asset Management?

Smith_July_image.jpg Metadata is important because it helps you and other DAM users find the right files (keywords), understand the content of the files you find (descriptions) and use those files correctly (rights management). That sounds great and all, but who is going to enter all that metadata?

The short answer is: hopefully someone else!

The Semantic Web and the Modern Enterprise

shutterstock_97855988.jpg For over a decade the Semantic Web has been maligned, misconstrued and misunderstood. It’s been overhyped by its supporters while its critics have hung the albatross of artificial intelligence around its neck. Even its successes have been understated, often coming with little fanfare and without the mindshare and hype surrounding other trends such as Web 2.0, NoSQL or Big Data.

Organize SharePoint Content: Don't Upgrade Your Mess

shutterstock_58512671.jpg It’s a common story. An employee reads about how SharePoint is a great tool for document sharing and collaboration, a great place for teams to work on projects, a great tool for the company intranet.

Enterprise Information Inefficiency: No Sector Has Found a Definitive Solution

Information is at the heart of what most enterprises do. For some it is their product and lifeblood; for others it lubricates all aspects of their operation.
