Pharma companies invest a lot of resources into their digital asset management (DAM) system to get more value from digital assets such as images, videos, texts and many other asset types by making them easy to organize, access and distribute. However, if the content inside the digital asset management system is not tagged with various properties suggested by the machine learning engine, it will be very difficult to find the assets you need, which means that you are not fully utilizing the digital asset management system and lowering your ROI. It will also make it a lot more difficult to search and reuse content across channels. In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about auto-tagging and the benefits it can offer your business. However, before we get into all of the automation, let’s first understand metadata in the context of digital asset management.
What is Metadata?
In the context of digital asset management, metadata refers to any attributes that enable search and discovery — anything embedded in the digital asset when it’s uploaded, such as the file name, author, date created, and content type, plus any other metadata fields you create. There are additional ways you can approach metadata, such as:
- Adding hierarchical keywords based on your content taxonomy
- Adding descriptive metadata to define campaign-specific collections of assets
- Create tags to credit the asset’s creator, author, or photographer, and require approval to use the asset by tagging by request.
All of these tags will be added to your library of digital assets. As you can imagine, marketing teams have thousands of assets, and performing the tagging process manually will take a lot of time. Fortunately, thanks to AI, this process can be automated.
How Does Auto-Tagging Work?
Basically, the way auto-tagging works is that there are tagging engines that scan incoming forms of various content types and extract key metadata with minimal training from the AI engine. This leads to quick startup cycles and ROI for the software. This approach works well for free-form content, such as articles, where the system extracts information from the content and populates the metadata. The AI tool analyzes uploaded images and documents and suggests tags that can be added to these files, based on its analysis. For example, if an image contains a person, the engine will detect things like gender, age, facial expression, etc.
If you have an article, image, video, or any other type of unstructured data, the tagging Engine may automatically apply the tags “artificial intelligence” and “content management” because it shares many of the same terms and topics of existing articles with those tags already applied.
The entire auto-tagging process looks like this:
Improve Content Re-usage in Pharma
Nowadays, pharma marketers need to create content for various channels, and the sheer volume of content needed can be overwhelming for even the largest and most efficient marketing departments. By tagging all of your content assets, you will be able to reuse and repurpose existing content for new marketing campaigns and initiatives. You will be able to search your digital asset management system and easily see which pieces of content you have available and create a patient or HCP experience you would like to see. Since all of these assets are already MLR approved, you will be able to save additional time, and you can create the content yourself without the need to engage any other team.
Additional Benefits of Auto Metadata Tagging
One of the biggest advantages of auto-tagging is the time that you will save. If your digital asset management system has the capability to tag content automatically, the AI system will follow the tagging rules that you set up to analyze and tag your assets. It will then apply additional metadata tags, which can save you days of work.
When assets and documents are tagged correctly, your digital asset management system’s search engine will be easier to use. Internal teams and external stakeholders can quickly find the assets they need (instead of weeding through unrelated search results). To improve the suggested tags over time, you can review them, so the AI learns from what you approve or reject. It may also help you refine your tagging taxonomy — thereby improving asset discovery for all of your users.
