Part-1 of this series, I covered the most commonly outsourced information management functions. In Part 2 I outline the hiring and contracting options for getting the professional skills and experience your organization needs for managing your digital information assets. Although Digital Asset Manager is a relatively new position, it has quickly become a necessity in almost every industry. With over 20,000 asset managers working throughout the world (in almost every industry) today, and those numbers projected to triple within the next decade, the good news for executives and IT professionals is that many more options are now available. Whether you work in corporate America, government, academia, law or medicine/healthcare, a good portion of your business is now conducted in the digital marketplace, and that volume is only growing. More content is digital, making the need for managing these assets (and the position of Digital Asset Manager) increasingly critical to future success.
