DCAM v2.2 – Virtual Training

Developed by EDM Council members,  DCAM™ – the Data Management Capability Assessment Model – is the industry standard framework for Data Management. DCAM defines the scope of capabilities required to establish, enable and sustain a mature Data Management discipline.

The EDM Council provides training on the requirements for sustainable data management as defined by DCAM. Training participants are exposed to the rationale behind the DCAM capabilities including how to apply the DCAM scoring methodology to consistently evaluate data management capability. The Virtual DCAM classes now also include the 8th Component in DCAM for Analytics Best Practice, which was added in DCAM v2.2. Students who successfully complete DCAM training and pass the exam will receive a DCAM Certified badge through our verified badging system.
