Digital asset management

Digital asset management (DAM) systems emerged in the 1990s to help publishers and media manage the digitization and retrieval, workflows, and distribution of digital assets such as photographs, videos, animations, and music. Most systems were complex and custom built. Canto and XiNet were early commercial vendors. By the late 1990s most large organizations needed much of the same capability for managing digital brand assets, training materials, and websites, and document management systems and early content management systems didn’t provide much, if any, of the required functionality. The broadening of the market to corporate applications led to additional digital asset management system vendors such as Artesia, North Plains, and MediaBeacon. While larger content management, or digital experience platform, vendors have acquired DAM vendors, the vendor market landscape has continued to grow.

Media asset management (MAM) systems are a type DAM system, but typically focused more on audio visual production.

Technology and operational integration remain the most difficult and costly implementation issues for digital experience and digital transformation initiatives. Understanding the integration technologies and practices most critical for your project is a requirement for success. Integrating open source and proprietary technologies can save cost, but what’s involved? Does open source add additional challenges? Veteran Joe Bachana describes a current project integrating a mix of five different systems. This is bound to be interesting!

A201. Case study in integration of open source with proprietary technologies for AGBU, a global not-for-profit 

In this talk, Joe Bachana presents how open source technologies such as Drupal (CMS), Entermedia (DAM), OpenKM (records management), and CiviCRM (CRM) are being implemented with an Intacct Accounting System for the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU). The resulting system manages the entire customer relationship, from inception through to management of donations and membership activities.
