Installing a new digital asset management (DAM) system can be a challenge. After a great deal of planning and coordination across multiple departments and groups, the biggest task is left – the migration of existing assets from one or more sources into the new DAM system. CMS Wire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Using DAM Content Migration to Maximize Asset Value.”

Some vendors may offer a simple way to migrate old assets into the new DAM, but rarely spend the time necessary to see how your organization can get the most value out of old assets. This leaves the onus on you to get the most out of your data migration plans. It is key to have standardized metadata and a solid taxonomy with which to index the content.

 Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies with integrated indexing rule bases to make their information findable.
