A Digital Asset Management System From Design to Production

databasepublish.com – There are times in the evolution of an organization when the timing is right to transition f r o m old processes and procedures into new ones. These are opportunities that must be managed professionally and with meticulous attention to detail. Stakeholders f r o m many areas often get involved and can produce monumental results for the future direction of the organization.

Many organizations produce a variety of catalogs, direct mail and other collateral in order to support the selling and marketing of their products. In addition, many organizations are seeking to improve their online presence, necessitating a web content management system that works seamlessly with other sales and marketing campaigns.

As an organization evolves, for example, the decision to go f r o m a cumbersome film-based photography approach to a digital asset-based approach is no trivial matter. The advantages of a digital asset management system are vast, for improving the creative and production processes. However, a third-party content management system consulting business can greatly improve the associated transition process.

An appropriate digital asset management strategy is the first step in moving toward a more effective system. The design of digital asset management work flow models and use cases are essential tools for understanding archival procedures and determining future support requirements.

The evaluation of vendors by soliciting responses is vital to matching business requirements and vendor constraints. Additional opportunities for integration with merchandising, an inventory management system, and a new web content management system may be discovered along the way and taken into consideration for final product selection.

A qualified content management system consultant has a better chance of providing the most independent evaluation of vendors, especially if they can translate the technical specifications and functionality into layman’s terms. This enables stakeholders within the organization to make more informed decisions about the final selection. This reduces selection process time, ensures user adoption, and mitigates risk.

Oftentimes, customization is required for legacy system integration in order to capture campaigns that will be replaced by the new digital asset management system as well as for bulk asset upload. Additionally, many digital asset management solutions can be leveraged to act as a centralized hub and as a traffic controller for all assets to be managed and distributed in the organization’s digital work flow.

High integrity content management consultants are vital participants for organizations to accomplish digital asset management objectives. Proven experience is essential in order to reduce risk and efficiently facilitate a smooth transition to a digital asset management system or a web content management system.

Selecting the right vendor that best suits the organizational requirements and offers flexible integration into additional systems is vital. The assistance of a content management system consultant that is well versed in tailoring and implementing digital asset management systems reduces time especially when confronted with understanding and translating the technical attributes of each vendor.

As a result, the potential of a digital asset management system can be more fully realized through the assistance of a qualified consultant. Organizations that find the right consultant are better able to effectively deploy digital asset management solutions, in less time, with tighter integration, and with greater peace of mind.

Nowadays if a business is going to be successful it is vital that modern technology is not only used, but it should be embraced. This is necessary because competition is fierce and keeping up is simply not good enough. An Internet presence is key to continued success but not every website is equal. The truth is that unless a website is developed with knowledge and expertise it is unlikely that it will get ranked well with search engines. And that means the site could virtually get lost in cyberspace. A well designed website includes proper utilization of keywords for search engine optimization. It also includes such things as branding materials and company logos, audio and video clips, photos and images, and a number of other types of content that make a site more compelling. As a company grows it naturally accumulates an increasing library of digital assets which results in the need for a reliable digital a s s e t management system. That’s where DPCI comes in.

State Of The Art Approaches to Digital Asset Management

Every modern business has an online presence and that Internet connection requires having a website. If the site is not search engine optimized it will not receive traffic. First impressions do count in cyberspace – if the website is not interesting enough to catch and hold a visitor’s attention the result will be a loss of sales. One way to brand a company and to add interest to a site is through such things as logos, videos, audios, still and stock photos and images, and other forms of content. But in a short period of time this arsenal of content adds up and if it is not properly organized in an effective digital asset management system time can be wasted in searching for, accessing, and updating content.

DPCI works to assist companies with increased speed and functionality in updating online content. An online presence is an absolute requirement of every modern day industry, corporation, business, and organization. But simply having a website does not guarantee visitors to the site. In fact, there are several things that must be in place before visitors can even find a website easily. Perhaps the most important concern is that of search engine optimization. This is a method of utilizing appropriate keywords and phrases in the correct way to get noticed by the search engines. A good ranking with search engines helps to insure that people in need of a particular service or product will find the right site.

Another important part of having a positive online presence is having interesting content that keeps visitors coming back. This is sometimes done through the use of photos, videos, audios, logos and other branding materials. As a company grows and develops new products and services the more of this digital content there is to manage. Obviously the digital asset management is a vital component of any content management system.

Depending on IT personnel to handle this responsibility is how some companies tackle the job. However, this is not the most efficient use of this personnel’s time. While it takes them away from other tasks that they are better suited for the content management system they may decide to incorporate is likely to be less effective than other options available. Any digital asset management system implemented will place more responsibility on marketing professionals and content experts and less on It personnel.

DPCI was incorporated 10 years ago. In ten years time Database Publishing Consultants, Inc.’s expert consultants have expanded their already extensive knowledge about what makes the perfect content management solutions. Whether working with a museum or a large corporation, DPCI can easily implement a digital asset management that allows even non-technical personnel to become producers.

Resources, information, and an online community relevant to the particular needs of the targeted market group will enhance visitor’s experience.

Many companies rely on their IT personnel to develop, manage and deliver all web content used. This often takes the IT professional away from other tasks that require his/her expertise. Web content management systems provided by DPCI are based on the belief that access should be instant and it should be convenient to use with a template driven web browser interface. With the right content management system, even non-technical personnel can become producers.

Every company has unique needs. DPCI can implement a digital asset management system that is geared specifically to the requirements of a large corporation or smaller organization. The fact is that over a short period of time companies acquire numerous corporate logos and branding materials, still and stock photography, audio and video clips, and archival content of all kinds. This must be organized and handled via digital asset management.

Database Publishing Consultants, Inc. is now celebrating 10 years of business. In that time DPCI has gained a vast knowledge regarding what makes an ideal content management system.
