6 Tips for Digital Asset Management in Life Sciences

Over 50 life sciences professionals from across Europe came together at Veeva’s 2nd annual European Digital Asset Management for Life Sciences Forum.

Brand, marketing, and digital professionals spent the day discussing marketing strategies, networking, and sharing best practices for advancing digital asset management in their organizations.

View the presentations from experts at Grünenthal, GSK, ICP, Novo Nordisk, MSD, and Optimity Advisors, who shared practical tips from their experience rolling out DAM programs.

Here are the 6 key takeaways from the forum:

  1. Start with the “why” when building your DAM foundation. Setting a long-term, company-specific vision will provide a platform for solid future growth.
  2. ○ Victor Lebon, CEO – EMEA and APAC, ICP

  3. Improving efficiency, reclaiming control of assets, and ensuring teams work towards the same goal are key considerations when developing an ROI model for DAM.
  4. ○ Massimiliano Siciliano, Head of Global Internal Data Market Insights, Grünenthal

  5. When building your digital content factory, bring together technology, processes, and teams to deliver an exceptional and personalized customer experience
  6. ○ Sarah Tomlinson, Global Commercial Delivery Lead, GSK

  7. Modular content* is central to delivering a more meaningful and efficient multichannel customer engagement strategy.
  8. ○ Morten Kruse Sorensen, Global Director, Multichannel Excellence and Operations, Novo Nordisk

  9. Personalized content matters – a journey-triggered email has a 6x higher click-through rate than a bulk email. Leverage automation to meet the customer wherever they are.
  10. ○ Jana Holanova, Digital Factory Lead, MSD

  11. Metadata* is the lifeblood of your DAM. It increases your ROI because it unlocks the potential to ingest, discover, share and distribute assets.
  12. ○ John Horodyski, Partner, Optimity Advisors

Next year’s forum will take place on June 17-18 in Amsterdam. Plans are already underway to make it bigger and better!

But, you don’t have to wait to stay up to date with the latest developments in DAM for life sciences:

Thanks again to our expert speakers and delegates for making this year’s event such a success. We look forward to seeing you at one of our future events.
