Solidatus for DCAM

EDM Council, the cross-industry trade association for data management, has partnered with Solidatus, the leading data lineage and business relationship modeling solution, to provide EDM Council members with a DCAM (Data Management Capability Assessment Model) Knowledge Modeling tool.

The models enable data professionals and their organisations to more effectively manage their data supply chain and conform with regulatory, data privacy and other business process requirements. Consequently, this enables companies to deliver their data management capability roadmap while accelerating value delivery from their data assets.

The advanced modeling capabilities of Solidatus allows organisations to understand how DCAM version 2.1 has evolved from the previous version 1.3 and to gain enhanced version-to-version traceability.

Notably, the latest DCAM 2.1 framework streamlines the components from eight to seven and introduces new concepts such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and the ethical use of data.

Access DCAM models

Solidatus for EDMC members

Solidatus Lite is exclusively available to EDM Council members, who can access a read-only version of the Solidatus DCAM models and platform.

EDM Council members have exclusive access to constantly updated and maintained digital models created by the EDM Council in Solidatus. These models include DCAM Version 2.1 (mapped to DCAM Version 1.3), DCAM Version 2.1 Master Model, DCAM Version 1.3 Master Model, DCAM Version 2 New Concepts, DCAM Forward Capability (Capability and Sub-capability Level) and Backward Capability (Capability and Sub-Capability Level).

GDPR Knowledge Model – In April 2020 the EDM Council published the DCAM GDPR Knowledge Model with logic on how to leverage the GDPR work across all versions of Data Privacy regulation. 

Additional models such as BCBS 239 to DCAM and CCPA to DCAM will be released later this year.

As a member of the EDM Council, Solidatus Pro is now available to members at an exclusive discount rate. Solidatus Pro allows organisations to author their own models and measure the impact of regulation and how it will affect their organisation.

Solidatus Pro enables data professionals to:

  • Efficiently migrate their organisational assessment data from DCAM v1.3 to v2.1
  • Directly model regulatory obligations such as BCBS-239, CCAR, GDPR onto their organisations’ systems, providing evidenced data lineage
  • Implement metadata management, data governance and data quality to increase organisational data capabilities
