IEN 2019 DAM Practitioner’s Summit – Feedback

by Charles Russell on February 22, 2019

While other DAM conference place the focus on new cutting edge technology or impressive large-scale projects, this conference was a great reminder that the success of a Digital Asset Manager is not necessarily linked to the technology that they choose, but instead depends on the relationships that they can develop and the goals that they set for themselves” – Pauline Lopez  [Read More]

The first part and the second part of the articles present feedback from the following DAM professionals:
