ONE PLACE FOR ALL DATA

Digital asset management (DAM), also known as digital asset software, helps organizations store, organize, find, retrieve, and share data from a centralized source.

What is a digital asset?

digital format

Digital assets are assets that are stored in a digital format. Nowadays we observe the increasing numbers of types and cases of usage of digital assets. Each department of the company may have a specific type of digital asset.

For example, the marketing department may produce photography, logos, illustrations, commercials, content for social media, and videos. On the other hand, designers may create all files after Photoshop, InDesign, animations, audiovisual media. Business development specialists also use spreadsheets, digital paintings, and word documents.

For all these files, we can apply the definition of the digital asset.

Digital asset software

Digital asset management (system or software) is a structure that allows an organization to store, organize, find, retrieve and share its entire digital content catalog.

Contractors, employees, clients, and key stakeholders can have access to their entire digital content including videos, pictures, presentations, and documents and media.

Features of a DAM platform

Data Formation

Data Formation

This entails bringing in data from either analog or digital sources for encrypting, scanning through, and recognition. These analog sources could be from analog recordings, which make use of signals for transfers, while digital sources include all forms of text documents, audio files, or pictures. DAM software also helps transform any of the imported formats as a new object. This helps serve creative purposes

Controlling Access

Controlling Access

A Data Access Management System also performs security functions, limiting access to its contents. This makes sure that those who should not have access are prevented from doing so as not to alter contents negatively. For example, limiting digital content could corrupt or even erase it. It does this by employing password authentication or letting users log in to the database just once

Controlling Version

Controlling Version

This refers to system actions that manage changes made to programs and documents. A DAM can also serve this function by monitoring modifications made to later versions of various digital assets and ensuring they can be reversed. For instance, if newer versions removed certain features of the older one, DAM systems can help revert to the old version

AI Tagging

AI Tagging

  1. Many common objects in your images, like people, buildings, emotions, etc can be recognized via Google Vision service;
  2. AI acknowledges dominant colors, image duplicates, and similar images and auto-tags them;
  3. Face recognition. You need to tag the person only 3 times, and then the software will automatically admit and stamp all photos with this person in the archive;
  4. Detects location names based on GPS information. (Registered in our roadmap. Subscribe to get a notification when it is available).
Indexing and Sorting

Indexing and Sorting

This is one of the major functions of a DAM software system. They make assets readily available by providing a searchable guide that will assist with accessing data efficiently. This is one thing that makes digital assets readily available for use at any point in time. There is a directory that represents how each asset is organized and arranged. This directory or catalog of images could contain tags, filters, or a search bar feature that aids in easy access

Daminion gives our teams the tools to find their own resources so they don’t take up other people’s time

Before Daminion, the marketing team had to go through folders manually to find the right files as the search function was practically useless without the right tags. Now, when we have Daminion the required files can be found in a matter of seconds
