Digital asset management, commonly known in the industry as DAM, is a process by which you can classify, store, retrieve and manage rich media which are normally encoded in digital format and classified through metadata. Examples of media assets include music, images, videos, animations, design files, illustrations, audio files, podcasts, documents, presentations, ebooks and other such multimedia content. A digital asset management software is a system, product or program that enables you to handle, optimize, access and share these digital assets as part of your business procedures or to improve your business operations.

Pricing details are an important consideration when you evaluate SaaS providers. Ask the vendor if they offer price safeguards and contractual flexibility. “Shelfware” has become a major problem in SaaS licensing as clients end up paying for more than they need. Plus, to get pricing predictability, consumers are forced to subscribe to long-term contracts. Make sure you don’t get saddled with long-term licensing and get locked in for a long time with a single provider. Ask about easy exit policies that allow you to move on to another provider if you are not happy with the services offered by the current one. Select a provider that offers a handy standard annual termination facility as well as long-term cost protection.
Another crucial factor to consider is whether the cloud vendor meets compliance and security requirements. Your business is accountable to staff members, clients, business partners, and regulators. Therefore, you should select a vendor that has implemented a technically sound and comprehensive security program. Map your security control requirements such as availability, integrity, confidentiality, privacy, and accountability to the vendor’s capabilities. Ask the potential provider about the practices and systems they use to protect your private data. Do they meet general as well as industry-specific compliance and security standards? Do they provide special measures to meet the unique security requirements of your specific industry? Get satisfactory answers to these questions before you make the investment.
