I see 2013 as the year of adaptability for DAM, and by that I mean systems that easily adapt to IT environments as well as user needs.
DAM needs to seamlessly share information with other business systems and provide users the files and information they need as soon as they need it -- even if they’re working in an application separate from the actual DAM system. DAM should adapt on the fly to meet user and business needs, not the other way around. -- Edward Smith, Editor of DAM Learning Center and Product Marketing Manager at Extensis
