Today we released a new white paper about managing and costing DAM projects.
We have written the report partly in response to the narrow focus of many of the RFPs we have to review (either in a consultative capacity or when responding to them ourselves). So often we see RFPs that are merely wish-lists of technical features presented as a ‘scorecard’ style quantative evaluation that consists of either highly specific feature requests or glibly summarised, close-ended questions such as “Easy to use: yes/no? Although this approach may suffice for ‘phase one’ or simple DAM systems, it is a blunt instrument if the requirements are more specialist or involve larger enterprise solutions. We often find insufficient consideration is given to the overall DAM delivery and implementation process and managers can be unprepared as a result.
