Develop Your Own Sustainable In-House DAM Consulting Expertise – Selecting DAM Solutions

Author: Ralph Windsor

Digital Asset Management is now an integral operational and strategic concern for most enterprises.  DAM solutions and the processes required to support them are fast becoming fully embedded in organisations as the volume and range of digital assets increases at an exponential rate.  In order to implement DAM initiatives, however, too many DAM end users end up over-spending on consulting services to go over the same rudimentary issues on multiple occasions, when they need to be building up their levels of in-house expertise so their strategies are more sustainable and of wider benefit than a single implementation.  This package consists of two in-depth educational reports, six months access to a premium account and vendor directory.

111 pages (across two reports), 850 page vendor directory and six months premium access

Cost: $499 until 28th February 2017 (usual price $799).  This report can be purchased with the DAM Vendor pricing survey for a discount and existing owners of the survey can upgrade for a reduced price, see the report description page for more details.
