From pre-DAM to workflows with DAM: Identifying your use cases

In the initial research of Digital Asset Management solutions for your organization, pre-DAM use cases are analysed to help decide on the best DAM solution for your organization’s business needs. This is not simply management’s need, but the potential DAM users’ needs with all their real world workflows. We will walk through how to do this from A to Z, including commonly forgotten parts of the workflow.

Of course, if you are reading this blog, you can save $100 by registering for DAM LA 2010 Conference by using the discount code.

You can also save on the hotel reservations with a special discounted room rate by requesting the group rate for the Henry Stewart Events or simply book the hotel online.

Digital Asset Management Los Angeles 2009 Conference

On November 9 and 10, 2009, I will be a guest presenter at DAM LA 2009. This is a two-day DAM conference held  in Los Angeles where I am scheduled to present on the following topics:

  • Dealing with Costs, Budgets and ROI
    • How do we budget for costs of implementing a DAM solution as well as the ongoing costs of operating a DAM? How can we measure return on investment in a consistent manner and justify the expenditure? We’ll explore real world cases and the pitfalls to avoid.
  • DAM and Change Management
    • As soon as we begin implementing a new DAM within an organization,we will need to deal with people, process and technology changes.
    • What about management issues? How do we evaluate employee competencies and their results?
    • What do employees need to do differently now than in the past? To whom do they report, when and how?
    • What skills are needed now more than ever?
  • DAM Career Planning, Qualifications and Hiring
    • Can people plan a DAM career? What does it take to be a DAM professional or Digital Asset Manager? We will explore resources available today to enrich our DAM knowledge and skills as well as explore the DAM job market.
