DCAM covers the unique requirements associated with the management of meaning (data architecture, identification management, taxonomies, glossary development), the challenges of ensuring fit-for-purpose quality (business rule, data dimensions, control processes, supply chain management) and the art of working in the midst of continuously evolving organizational priorities.

Using an interactive format, the Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM) was created for the real world and is structured in a way that delivers measurable business value and covers all capabilities and processes needed for sustainable data management.

DCAM Training Classes Cover:

  • Data Management Strategy and Business Case
  • The Data Management Program
  • Data Engineering
  • Technology Infrastructure
  • Data Governance
  • Data Quality

Foundations Training

Foundations training provides participants with a comprehensive overview of the core concepts associated with sustainable data management. It focuses on the best practice capabilities required to successfully establish a data management program within your organization. The two day interactive session covers the underlying philosophy of DCAM, an understanding of the scoring methodology, how to apply the model based on real-world examples and how the various segments relate to one another. The class ensures that participants understand the core concepts embedded within the model as well as the dependencies that exist across capabilities. Students who complete the Foundations course will be accredited to use the methodology for internal assessment.
