DAM. As soon as you start thinking about getting a Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution for your organization, you will hear the jokes coming.
Having a DAM day? Is this the hour of the DAM? Having a DAM moment?
What if you were:
- the DAMM (Digital Asset Management Manager)
- the DAMD (Digital Asset Management Director)
- the DAM VP (Digital Asset Management Vice President)
(It is just a title)
- Do you have DAM-IT (Digital Asset Management and Information Technology) group meetings?
You can imagine the DAM conversations:
- Do you have DAM access?
- You need a DAM account.
- Here is the DAM URL.
- Got a DAM login?
- What about a DAM password?
- Having DAM problems? What is your DAM problem?
- What about DAM permissions?
- What is your DAM role?
When you have a DAM, there are often:
- DAM assets
- DAM budget
- DAM consultants
- DAM department
- DAM downloads
- DAM groups
- DAM meetings
- DAM metadata
- DAM people
- DAM reports
- DAM ROI (Return On Investment)
- DAM strategy
- DAM support
- DAM TOC (Total Cost of Ownership)
- DAM training
- DAM uploads
- DAM vendors
All DAM, all the time.
Been there. Done that. Got the DAM t-shirt. (Yes, there are some DAM t-shirts available. Really. Google it.)
Learn DAM. Live DAM. Love DAM. (Keep up the enthusiasm.)
Don’t give a DAM? Well, of course not. You don’t give a DAM. DAM is not free (even when it is open source, it still requires time to implement). Instead share a DAM within your organization and save money.
Let everyone make the DAM jokes and do not take it personally. DAM humor is a good thing.
Do you have any good, clean DAM jokes?

Metator? Is that the modern version of an ‘information minotaur’? Or a matador of information? While I agree the function of this position is vital for consistency and continuity of assets (and its metadata), the title “information specialist” sounds more appealing for this role.
