Museum administrators face critical decisions each day. It is no different in the planning of a new digital asset management system.
Speaker Susan Barrett offers viewers a better understanding of the process for planning, selecting or transferring to a new DAM system. She knows this can be an overwhelming project to conquer. Join Susan as she slays the planning dragon by taming “technolust” and shows you how to develop a digital strategy, prior to investing in a DAM system.
Susan has been a DAM Guru Program member since December 2013. Connect with her on Twitter.
Webinar recorded on 16 July, 2014.
