PRE-EVENT AFTERNOON TUTORIAL
Sunday 9 November, 2pm to 5pm
Many first-time DAM projects begin with flawed assumptions and unrealistic expectations, calling attention to the need for a solid grounding in the fundamentals of how to design and provision complex technical systems and, in particular, digital asset management systems.
This practical ‘how to’ tutorial establishes a foundation for understanding DAM as a business-productivity strategy, enhancing the ability of participants to compare and contrast various technical systems as well as to assess whether their firm should build, buy, rent, or by-pass the purchase and deployment of on-premise software applications or, alternatively, subscribe to an on-demand software-as-a-service.
Consider this session as an essential full-immersion for managers or directors driving a new DAM initiative. It will cover:
Asset types: Understanding the 9 essential types of digital assets and how to manage them
Metadata: Discovering the pivotal role of metadata in transforming content and files into true digital assets
Life cycle of digital assets: Defining the eight phases and 55 asset activities that comprise the life cycle of digital assets
Enterprise or Department Applications

Asset-creation workflows: Optimizing the authoring, capture, acquisition processes and workflows for the creation of digital assets, metadata, and accountability in publishing and DAM service workflows
