Q&A from the Session

These tools are meant only for getting binaries into AEM ?

Then have post processing steps to extract metadata ?
Bulk Ingestion Tooling can ingest any file (image, document, binary). The default AEM processing and/or processing profiles will take care of generating renditions and extracting metadata as configured. There is also a Bulk metadata import tool:
When we do bulk ingestion, is it recommended to disable workflows? or do we follow any other best practice to generate renditions while doing bulk asset ingestion? You don't need to disable workflows in Cloud Service anymore. But, please keep in mind that there is no DAM Update Asset Workflow and all custom workflows should be configured as a post processing workflow as opposed to a launcher.
How are failed events tracked? Can events get lost as well, specially in case of high processing? Events are tracked using a journal, which is polled to know rendition status. Events usually don't get lost, and even if it would happen, the AEM watchdog would retry failed or unresponsive renditions. 
can you discuss any advantages to using the AEM desktop manager for uploads? I am assuming they meant AEM Desktop App, it's a different tool that does similar things, but really for a different persona who doesn't want to log in to AEM Web UI and prefers to work on their desktop as a native experience
Currently we have custom process to purge image cache on DM CDN post smart crop edits. Will we be able to hook this process/job on CS setup/events available for same? This might be possible using a post processing workflow, but we need more details on the use case
