DAM News editors, Ralph Windsor and Nick Brookes have collaboratively written this special whitepaper: Digital Asset Management Hosting: Making The Right Decision For Your Organisation. The document considers the various hosting options available for DAM solutions from internal, self-hosted, SaaS and hybrid choices also. Both the risks and the benefits are considered in an impartial manner so managers can make informed decisions about what is the best route for their organisation:
“DAM hosting is a fundamental element of your Digital Asset Management provision but also the least understood by prospective purchasers of DAM systems. Often, organisations end up choosing one hosting option or another on a vague set of criteria that may be influenced by what their vendor or IT department has recommended for them.

A significant volume of your company’s Intellectual Property (IP) will be left in the custody of the hosting provider, whether that provision is provided in-house or outsourced. It is essential, therefore, that you understand the implications of different hosting choices and use a rational method to compare options based on a factual analysis of your circumstances.” [Read More]
