Selecting and Implementing the DAM Solution That’s Right for You – Marc Marsocci

Molly Hamm has written a valuable article/podcast for the Widen Blog titled “Selecting and Implementing the DAM Solution That’s Right for You – Marc Marsocci”.

It is most interesting because it starts off with a failed DAM implementation for 250,000 digital images and 1,500 videos – one that did not function as “advertised,” at the Mariners’ Museum and Park, in Newport News, Virginia, wasting nearly a year on an inappropriate system  Once they got on track, eliminating duplicates and applying proper taxonomy, they reduced their asset count by 50%.

They highlight the importance of doing your research! They discuss lessons learned about preparing for migration, the value of a series of soft, limited launches, advice for tackling permissions and roles, and their future plans for the API. Very useful stuff, indeed, well worth your time.
