Abstract

Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems bring the promise of increasingly sophisticated search techniques but all that glistens may not be gold. Fran Alexander examines the pros and cons of tagging, content-based image retrieval, face recognition, digital fingerprinting and screen-to-text, and concludes that they are very exciting but may be in the category of 'nice to have' rather than business critical.

Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems bring the promise of increasingly sophisticated search techniques but all that glistens may not be gold. Fran Alexander examines the pros and cons of tagging, content-based image retrieval, face recognition, digital fingerprinting and screen-to-text, and concludes that they are very exciting but may be in the category of 'nice to have' rather than business critical.

What's Inside:

Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems often include the latest search technologies such as tagging, content-based image retrieval, face recognition, digital fingerprinting and speech-to-text but beware of the hype and consider the pros and cons. A DAM system that supports your business critical, rather than your 'nice to have', functions is likely to be more cost effective overall.
