DAM software provider ResourceSpace showcase an impressive line-up of their cultural clients and case studies, including the Ashmolean Museum Oxford, The Walters Art Museum, and my personal favourite, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art (creator of classic children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar).

We’ve covered the topic of DAM and ROI a number of times here on DAM News, and this article from DAM vendor Brandworkz focuses on the importance of strategic planning within an organisation in order to maximise their DAM platform’s potential value.
