Program of Work

Financial Industry Business Ontology  (FIBO)

FIBO is the open industry “common language” standard for defining the terms, facts and relationships associated with financial contracts.  FIBO covers financial instruments (product reference data), market data pricing and financial processes. 

Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM)

DCAM is the EDM Council’s synthesis of data management best practices.  DCAM defines the capabilities required to establish, enable and sustain a functional data management discipline.  DCAM is organized to reflect the interdependent flow data management processes and addresses the strategies, organizational structures, technology and operational best practices needed to drive data management.   

Data Management Capability Model (DCAM)
Original self-assessment model/spreadsheet (formerly known as the DMM)
