Summary Digital Asset Management: Content Architectures, Project Management, and Creating Order out of Media Chaos is forthose who are planning a digital asset management system or interested inbecoming digital asset managers. This book explains both the purpose of digital asset management systems and why an organization might need one. The text thenwalks readers step-by-step through the concerns involved in selecting, staffing, and maintaining a DAM. This book is dedicated to providing you with asolid base in the common concerns, both legal and technical, in launching acomplex DAM capable of providing visual search results and workflow options. Containing sample job models, case studies, return on investment models, and quotes from many top digital asset managers, this book provides a detailedresource for the vocabulary and procedures associated with digital assetmanagement. It can even serve as a field guide for system and implementation requirements you may need to consider. This book is not dedicated to the purchase or launch of a DAM; instead it is filled with the information you need in order to examine digital asset management and the challenges presented by the management of visual assets, user rights, and branded materials. It will guide you through justifying the cost for deploying a DAM and how to plan for growth of the system in the future. This book provides the most useful information to those who find themselves inthe bewildering position of formulating access control lists, auditing metadata, and consolidating information silos into a very new sort of workplace management tool, the DAM.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 165-167) and index.
