As part of the DAM Guru Program initiative to connect people and expand DAM education, we will be sharing deliverables from relevant DAM group events. The “Guru Share” is a way to expand DAM knowledge provided by peers, and promote the great content being discussed and dissected by these groups worldwide.

Our first share, a video recording of “Metadata Automation,” from the New Jersey Digital Asset Management Meetup from 14 Dec 2016. The impressive panel for this month’s virtual meetup included David Riecks, Mark Walter and Picturepark’s Peter Parker. Meetup organizers Deb Fanslow and Frank DiCarlo hosted the #LearnDAM event.

All organizers and panelists (except for Mr. Walter) are active members of DAM Guru Program.
