Do You Have the Right DAM Vendor for Your Industry?

  • 3-Apr-2017

Digital Asset Management (DAM) has always been considered a horizontal technology, but as the market has evolved, more vendors are focusing on particular industry verticals. In RSG's full DAM vendor evaluation research, we rate the knowledge and experience of 34 vendors across nine different verticals:

  • Advertising & Creative Agencies
  • Fast-Moving Consumer Goods
  • Government
  • Manufacturing
  • Media & Entertainment
  • Nonprofit, Education, & Heritage
  • Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, & Medical
  • Retail & E-commerce

Here's a breakdown of the vendors that rate highly (three or better on a five-point scale) in a few key verticals.

DAM Vendors by Verticals

This evolution has caused vertical focus to become another important factor to consider when building your DAM vendor shortlist.

To address this dimension, we recently added vertical capabilities to the list of usage scenarios in RSG's RealQuadrant ShortList Generator:
