10 Characteristics of a DAM
Digital Asset Management systems are a combination of procedures, people working within the system, the life cycle of a digital asset, hardware and software. In “What is a DAM? The 10 Characteristics of a Digital Asset Management System” Elizabeth Keathley of The DAM Foundation lists the following:
- Unique ID codes
- Workflow capability
- Version control
- The ability to create metadata fields/categories that follow metadata standards
- A robust and extensive taxonomy built
- Advanced search using metadata/keywords
- Ability to share assets and/or links to assets
- Upload, download, apply metadata and organizes batches of assets
- Handle several different file types ranging from documents, video, audio files, photos, images, etc.
- Ability to administer rules, access, users and user groups.
Full details of these aspects can be read in “What is a DAM? The 10 Characteristics of a Digital Asset Management System.”
