Daydream (www.daydream.co.uk), leading Open Source Enterprise Digital Asset Management (DAM) specialists have released a whitepaper that describes a number of best practice techniques IT professionals can use to ensure that DAM is implemented successfully in large or medium sized enterprises.
The report condenses Daydream's experiences of the enterprise DAM market into a report packed with useful advice, checklists and best practice guidelines that will provide IT managers with a useful framework for developing their Digital Asset Management strategy.
The subjects covered include:
- The benefits DAM systems can offer
- Outsourcing vs Insourcing: How to decide which is best
- A typical DAM project team: staffing requirements
- Roles and responsibilities for IT managers
- The importance of training to successful implementations
- Hosting, support and maintenance of DAM systems
- Selecting a vendor: what to consider
Ralph Windsor, Managing Director of Daydream said:
"Although most DAM systems tend to be procured by marketing departments, we have found that IT managers are frequently asked to act as internal consultants and advise on best practice. There is a limited amount of information available about what to expect at an enterprise level and how to formulate an effective strategy."
"Many IT managers may wrongly assume DAM to either simply about storage facilities or the same as ECM systems like SharePoint. This can be problematic when they come to discuss requirements with marketers. In this report, we aim to dispel some myths and present practical advice for successfully delivering DAM whether using internal or outsourced resources."
