Step 5. Use Case Scenarios

In order to visualise your requirements in a real-world environment, you need to construct use case scenarios.

Stakeholders detail their typical interactions with the DAM, their workflows and other day to day activities.

Understanding what your users want from the DAM and how the DAM will improve their experience is key to selecting the right vendor.

Witnessing workflows being carried out in real life with your own assets is far more informative than receiving a canned demo which is solely geared towards selling you the vendor’s product.

What you end up with is real world scenarios that are truly relevant to you. You set up a problem for the vendor to solve and then the vendor is able to utilise the features of their system in order to solve it.

We have mapped a number of common use case scenarios against requirements in the CDC.

These use cases were built on industry knowledge and serve as a guide for how end-users interact with the DAM system on a day to day basis.

It’s possible for you to compare vendors based on these use cases or use them as a framework to build your own use case scenarios.

Vendors could have the same score for a certain subcategory but different strengths or functionality within that banding.

Use case scenarios allow vendors to demonstrate exactly how they carry out particular functionality, giving you an idea of their proficiency, not just their ability to do something.

This allows you to fully understand the performance of different DAM systems alongside each other, mapped to your specific requirements.
