SharePoint as a DAM: Suitability, Limitations, and Alternatives

  • 18-Apr-2014

Known primarily for workgroup management of MS Office files, Microsoft SharePoint is also an omnibus information management platform with potentially many other uses. So customers can reasonably ask if it will suffice for Digital Asset Management (DAM) scenarios as well.

Today we publish an advisory paper offering a detailed analysis of SharePoint's DAM capabilities – its possibilities, limitations, and alternatives, along with an explanation of the circumstances when it will suffice.

We then offer an assessment of three main alternatives when seeking a more targeted DAM solution, running either within, behind, or next to SharePoint.

As always, let us know if you have questions.
