Best Practices: Digital Asset Management

Why Read This Report

In a world with increasing numbers of rich media assets and a diverse set of distribution channels, content and collaboration (C&C) pros are taking a closer look at rich media management options. Despite this increased interest, digital asset management (DAM) initiatives remain nascent at best. To better help C&C pros create mature and successful DAM strategies, Forrester compiled a list of best practices from numerous in-depth interviews and client inquiries. These include: aligning existing and projected needs with the DAM solution; establishing a governance strategy; and creating comprehensive rich-media-specific metadata models to enhance the end user experience.
