Although not as ubiquitous as DAM for marketing/creative scenarios are these days, law enforcement agencies were certainly one of the early adopters of Digital Asset Management technology and it ‘s fair to say that along with the stock photo industry, DAM users from this sector drove forward many of the innovations that are now either de rigueur or becoming economic to implement in more mainstream DAM systems.

For example, facial recognition technology has improved considerably as a result of its use by law enforcement agencies and there are now several a number of DAM vendors who include features using this to simplify metadata entry where assets contain images of recognisable people (such as cross referencing back to HR photo records of employees).  If you are interested in how Digital Asset Management technology may develop (as a buyer or vendor) it could be well worth either attending or sending someone from your team along to the expo.
