DAM Best Practices workshop

Abstract

An Extensis DAM subject matter specialist shares best practices to help you successfully implement digital asset management in your organization. Throughout the session you will see examples from organizations like American Museum of Natural History, Yale, and National Wildlife Federation. Collections Information Manager, Maggie Hanson, from Portland Art Museum joins Extensis as co-presenter.

In this session you’ll:

  • Learn to assess your current workflow and how it relates to defining your future workflow with DAM
  • Gain an understanding of the solutions available and how to evaluate different technologies
  • See real world examples from successful DAM projects
  • Receive example documents and tools that can be used for new and existing systems

During the roundtable discussion you and your peers will discuss the top challenges organizations such as yours encounter:

  • Integrating DAM with your current workflow
  • Implementing DAM across multiple departments

You’ll learn insights from others at your table about challenges and successes they’ve experienced as well as share your own. This will be your opportunity to start networking to make connections you can maintain well after the conference. In the regroup section you’ll learn what those at the other tables have identified as the key take-aways for each of the round table topics.
