A useful table is provided, comparing the implications of processing SRRs with and without information governance (IG), along with additional information covering the various types of requests that can be submitted to an organisation, and the key differences between manual processing and those using automated eDiscovery tools.
Digital Asset Management software provider Widen provide a quick recap of the most common maintenance and housekeeping tasks that a DAM manager is likely to undertake. The primary task is keeping the user dashboard up-to-date – the first thing that users will encounter when they log into the DAM system. This includes updates to the company’s brand, spotlight searches, new collections, and addressing common user issues by way of documentation, FAQs, or user surveys. Other responsibilities include a monthly review of your user list to review and approve any new accounts and delete inactive ones, and setting up a regular schedule to identify assets that need to be archived – ensuring that they are correctly tagged and categorised prior to archiving so they can be easily found should they be reinstated at a later date.Share this Article:
