DCAM Benchmarking Report 2015
The 2015 data management benchmarking study covered 21 of the most critical concepts related to effective data management. It was derived directly from the EDM Council’s Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM™) – a set of standard criteria used to measure data management functions and processes. The final report includes analysis related to the adoption of data quality processes; the implementation of standards needed to achieve data comparability across the financial system; the establishment of strong governance to ensure successful data integration; and the ability to aggregate data needed by regulators in order to monitor threats to stability across the global financial system.
