Making the Case for Digital Asset Management in Retail

Using technology to manage digital assets effectively


Retailers of all sizes typically have to deal with enormous numbers of product images, videos and other media files. But how do they manage these digital assets? How strong is their awareness of the benefits of digital asset management (DAM) in doing so? How well do they understand what DAM is and does?

The consulting firm Ovum surveyed 250 retailers in the US and UK to get insights into retailers’ current practices and attitudes towards the management of digital assets.

Most retailers think they understand what DAM is and believe they have deployed DAM. The reality is different, as the majority wastes hours each week searching for files. – Sue Clarke, Senior Analyst Information Management, Ovum
