Organisations in the digital era have to realise that the content they create, commission or license, needs to be mobile-ready, responsive, and readily consumed. The technology at the core of making this possible is Digital Asset Management (DAM). DAM can be thought of as a managed metadata engine that networks, connects, indexes, analyses, assesses, abstracts, categorises, organises, relates and presents digital media files.

The Codified DAM Consultant™ only cover accredited and certified digital asset management vendors, meaning they pass the Ten Core Characteristics of a DAM system.

One of the questions we are constantly asked is which DAM is the best and, as we all know, there is no such thing. It all depends on what and where the DAM customer is. The question layer is critically important–do I want cloud?, is my preference SaaS? or On-Premise?, do I know or even understand the functional and nonfunctional requirements, do I have a sound taxonomy, a content-based information architecture? The list of questions goes on and on.

Without expert non-partial advice, sifting through the complexity is down to the will of the researcher. Unless, of course, they bring in consultants that fully understand the transformative nature of what DAM as a strategy can bring to everyone.

The Codified DAM Consultant™ takes all the guesswork out of vendor selection and focuses in on the vendor data, their scores within each dimension and what each metric means in terms of a fully enabled DAM strategy.

This enables our users to quickly go from long list to a short list of accredited vendors very quickly and in a guided way. 


Covering technical specifications and how they match your enterprise requirements.

Of course, DAM is much more than a basic strategy without workflow it is simply a metadata engine and the hard work of integration all the content endpoints are at the skill within the enterprise. We have that covered too.

Ten core is a standard where metrics are assigned to vendor capability, workflow tools and modules extend the reach of DAM for all content touch points and finally, your requirements can be matched directly to the appropriate vendors
