2013 was a year of moderate progress for the Digital & Media Asset Management marketplace. Most vendors gradually added functionality and partnerships to address the broadening scope of enterprise asset management needs; however, there were few major product launches or acquisitions following a more dynamic 2012.
Increased focus on refining existing tools through product development efforts and partnerships dominated DAM & MAM vendor agendas in 2013; however, some foundational elements such as workflow and metadata management still tend to fall short, frustrating customers who are looking for greater operational efficiency.

We look at the market in a multifaceted way; this market analysis is just one approach, and other types of vendor categorizations can be found in our Digital & Media Asset Management research.
