It’s that time of year when we look back and forward simultaneously. Looking back at what we have accomplished while looking forward with anticipation as to what opportunities and yes, challenges, the new year will bring to each of us and the industries we work in. CMS Wire brought this information to our attention in their article, “A Sneak Peek at DAM’s Roadmap for 2015 and Beyond.”

What innovative new features and technologies will 2015 offer? One exciting area is in the world of digital asset management (DAM). This consists of management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloging, storage, retrieval, and distribution of digital assets. Vendors are working hard to improve the usability of their DAM systems. One specific focus is re-imagining the user interface (UI). This will make it quicker and easier for users to find and repurpose assets.
