Ralph Windsor and Naresh Sarwan of DAM News – The Digital Asset Management Value Chain: The Future Direction Of DAM In 2013 And Beyond:
“As a buyer, you can’t pick and choose features from one and plug them into another, you have to sift through reams of potential options and try to select the least worst choice that has more of what you want and less of what you don’t for a price compatible with your ever-shrinking budget.
[…] The DAM system market when viewed collectively is highly inefficient. Most vendors commit major proportions of their development team’s time (and their own profits) replicating functionality that a section of their competitors already offer so they won’t be seen to be falling behind in RFPs and pitches. ”
