Definitely looks like a mess. If your DAM looks like this (and I’m willing to bet it does if you’re in a big company), the thought of fixing it might bring to mind this dark Woody Allen joke:

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

Investing in a Digital Asset Management system can be a huge win for your business. It can accelerate your speed to market, increase marketing’s impact, and boost productivity while giving you back control of your content and reducing spend. Or it can be a nightmare journey through expensive customizations that don’t work, functionality that doesn’t scale, and a system that can’t adapt as your business changes. Picking a system that can meet your needs today and into the future is essential to getting the value your business needs and avoid the nightmare you fear. Caveat emptor!
