Digital asset management (DAM) systems are experiencing a booming market that according to reports will continue to grow through 2019. Market Watch brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Digital Asset Management Market to Grow at 21% CAGR to 2019.”

What is a DAM system? It consists of cataloging, storing, retrieving, and distributing digital assets such as photos, videos, animations, digital documents, etc.

Over the past five years, DAM vendors have been improving the products on a steady basis to improve the customer experience. By moving to cloud-based offerings instead of on-premise solutions, they have expanded their client base to organizations of all sizes.

A strong DAM is only as efficient as its system of indexing to create findability. We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
