26 August 2011, London, UK.- Leading digital asst management consultancy, Daydream, have recently released a new report that seeks to guide managers through the often complex task of planning a digital asset management solution across the complete implementation process. Titled 'The 8 Steps To DAM Success: A Manager's Guide To Planning And Costing Digital Asset Management Projects', the report provides impartial advice on the key steps in any digital asset management project. As well as selection advice, the report also includes details of all the costs that are likely to be incurred, not just those relating to the software.
The eight steps include:
- Selecting The Software
- Arranging The Technical Infrastructure
- Setting-up And Configuring The System
- Integrating With Other Business Systems
- Migrating Data And Loading Existing Assets
- User Training
- Supporting The System
- Extending The System
Ralph Windsor, Project Director at Daydream said “So often we review RFPs that are merely wish-lists of technical features. Although this 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. Our aim with this report is to arm project managers charged with more demanding DAM projects with the information they need to bring their projects to a successful conclusion.”
