Widen’s Jake Athey on SaaS DAM

Widen Collective has posted an update of a brief but interesting article by Jake Athey discussing the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS) DAM models. It mentions typical in-house-out-of house issues — build-or-by, outsourcing-challenging issues — like freeing up IT Staff to focus on governance to me, that means (ID and security management, and freed from maintaining hardware, data centers, storage, upgrades and patching.) It provides links to further articles on related topics, and some points on what to look for in a SaaS DAM vendor.
