New release from DAM Survival Guide author takes on taxonomy, metadata, policy and workflow
Aarau, Switzerland – 19 July 2016 – Metadata for Content Management by Picturepark’s David Diamond, was released today. The new book focuses on the design and application of metadata, taxonomy, policy and workflow as they apply to digital content systems.
“No one can explain digital content management concepts like David,” said Picturepark CEO, Ramon Forster. “Whereas DAM Survival Guide spoke largely to DAM theory, Metadata for Content Management is full of practical advice and examples that I think will resonate with anyone who manages content.”
Diamond ignores the lines of division between digital asset management (DAM), content management systems (CMS), document management systems (DMS) and related subjects. He instead speaks to the general management of digital content, regardless of the underlying system in use.
Many industry professionals recommend Diamond’s DAM Survival Guide to those new to the practice of Digital Asset Management.
David Diamond has directed global marketing for Picturepark since 2012. He was awarded “DAMMY of the Year” for 2013, the industry’s highest honor, for his educational contributions to the community, which included DAM Survival Guide and the creation of Picturepark’s DAM Guru Program.
Picturepark digital asset management software enables organizations to centrally store, manage and share digital assets on a modern service-oriented architecture (SOA) that is scalable, based on open standards, and available in the Cloud (SaaS), on-premise or in hybrids. Picturepark is suitable for enterprise-wide DAM deployment thanks, in part, to load-balancing, failover, service-based computer clustering, and support for true multi-tenant deployment. Adaptive Metadata technology enables each class of asset to have its own metadata schema that can evolve over time. Support for multiple taxonomies and controlled vocabularies is standard. The Picturepark Web Services API enables developers to integrate Picturepark with other systems. Embedded and branded Web portals based on HTML5/CSS can be built using the graphical Picturepark Ports tool.
