The year 2020 is the inflection point for digital transformation for companies around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has been disruptive for several industries creating a significant challenge for operating their businesses. The pandemic is reinforcing the need for digital transformation enterprises to modernize their information infrastructure to better respond to changing market conditions. Digital technologies play an important role in maintaining operations and facilitating organizations make data-driven investment decisions.

The new normal in the work environments has made it evident that companies are required to make content and data more accessible to sustain and thrive in the challenging environment.

Higher intelligence and automation is taking precedence over outsourcing and cheap labor, making artificial intelligence & IoT vital capabilities to have. Companies are today forced to invest in real-time collaboration, digital workflow automation, remote operations, omni-channel self-service, cloud computing & virtualization. The shift to digital & migration from on-premises to cloud is expected to significantly increase digital assets of companies. To ensure effective management & monetization of these assets, Digital Asset Management (DAM) is one technology that every company will need to invest in.

In order to better deal with remote employees, supply chain activities, and product/service promotion programs, enterprises across industries are emphasizing better DAM strategies that encompass various digital assets including digital documents, motion pictures, and audible content, intended for circulation or for storing on digital devices such as computers and smartphones.

Effective infrastructure, strategies, and mechanisms are therefore required for previewing, retrieving, transforming, distributing and sharing new and existing digital files in order to extract the maximum value from the existing inventory of digital assets. Digital asset management solutions benefit organizations by allowing them to place all their assets at a centralized digital location from where these assets can be easily accessed by anyone irrespective of their location.
