DCAM IS NOW DIGITAL!
DCAM: The Data Management Capability Assessment Model
DCAM® (the Data Management Capability Assessment Model) is the industry-standard, best practice framework designed to assist today's information professional in developing and sustaining a comprehensive data management program. DCAM is now organized into seven major components. Each component is defined by a series of required data management capabilities with each capability supported by a series of sub-capabilities, objectives, implementation advice and sample artifacts of evidence needed for verification of achievement.
DCAM, first published in 2014, was developed and continues to evolve based on the collective experiences of hundreds of data management professionals.
