Once you’re done unpacking, you can start setting up your new house in a way that makes everyone in the family feel comfortable and settled. This can mean decorating each room individually or buying a piece of furniture that fits a room perfectly.
During the migration, your attention was solely focused on executing it well. Now you can consider how your new DAM system, along with updated standards and workflows, can enable your organization to grow and excel by enhancing its content, creativity, branding, and marketing efforts. Below are some ideas for how to begin making your new DAM platform a home.
- Execute clean-up projects identified by quality control team
- Create training materials for each user group
- Roadmap short- and long-term DAM goals
- Plan expansion of DAM program to include other assets and departments

Once you’re assured that everything is working as it should be, it’s time to roll the new system out to your end-users. Start with a select group of power users that can learn the system quickly and then help you troubleshoot it and train the next level of users.
At this point, you can take a breath and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Next, it’s time to look to the future. What’s next for your DAM system? Where do you want it to be this time next year? How can it continue to provide a return on investment?
