Best Practice Program: Critical Data Element Project Briefing
One of the most significant regulatory directives post the financial crisis has been the introduction of the “Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting” or BCBS 239. In this directive, banks have been asked to establish sound information infrastructures to support their risk and risk reporting functions. Center to creating this “control environment” is the designation of CDEs or “critical data elements”. Definition: A critical data element (or business element) is a data element that has been identified as having a material impact on a business process or analytic, requiring escalated data quality scrutiny. A CDE can be either an atomic or a derived. This meeting initiates our working group for defining CDE's

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.

2015 Benchmarking Template
The 2015 benchmarking initiative has been derived directly from the DCAM and has been designed to ensure that all participants have a consistent view of where we collectively stand against the requirements for sustainable data management. We have extracted the 21 most important concepts associated with the implementation of a data management “control environment.” This survey represents our collective view of the essence of data management. It is designed to measure what both data management professionals and financial industry business users think about the current state of data management capability.
