5 Top Ways to Get Organized with Metadata

By: Damian Diaz
October 3rd, 2018

Understanding why accurate metadata is essential to your organization can make the difference between success and failure. One of the most basic functions of a proper metadata structure is to directly help with the searching and finding of assets quickly and easily, it sounds simple, but you wouldn’t believe how many organizations struggle with this very fundamental issue. Also, making sure you are entering correct metadata is crucial, one simple mistake can effectively render hundreds of assets to be inaccurate. An example would be that you or your client are merely embarrassed by using an incorrect image. Imagine you have a campaign with multiple professional athletes, and in an ad that references Kyrie Irving, there is a photo of Kevin Durant. Not the end of the world, but a definite knock on your credibility to accurately use the correct image.  But there can also be much more severe and costly consequences as we get into rights management and having the proper license to use a specific photograph or image. Running a national advertisement without rights to a particular image could cost your company serious $$$$ in fines and legal fees!

April 17th, 2018

Organizations that focus their content management efforts as a core of their digital strategy make better decisions.  At IO Integration we see that most large organizations have departments that are siloed and their information such as; projects, initiatives, and corresponding data and content involved with those endeavor is closed off from benefiting the company at large. This behavior of separating departments is costly, inefficient, and typically becomes problematic when digital transformation initiatives begin. While removing silos in the past would have been a monumental task, new developments in the digital ecosystem are able to rapidly include remote groups into equal participants in the digital business of today.
