What is DAM?
A possible description of digital assets and their management could be the following: Digital assets are any form of born or derivative digital file - including images, scans of analog media (paper documents, videos and photographs), documents, photos, videos, and presentations. Digital Asset Management refers to using systems and processes for the unbroken maintenance in organising, storing and retrieving digital assets, managing access rights (including in our absence or after death) and permissions (privacy and security), preserving and backing up digital assets, and ensuring continuity over time (e.g. migrating to new formats).
About the DAM name
This acronym is the name given by the author Peter Krogh for his book "The DAM Book - Digital Asset Management for Photographers" and many of his principles and ideas have been incorporated in thousands of photographer's workflows since it came out in 2005. The third edition of his book is now available, and HAGSOC members can receive a discount - ask for details at the meeting.
