This course covers EDM Council's Cloud Data Management Capabilities (CDMC) Framework

Cloud Data Management Capabilities Framework Training and Certification

CDMC JPGThe Cloud Data Management Capabilities Framework is the industry-standard, best practice framework for the management and control of sensitive and important data in cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments.

The development of CDMC was facilitated by the EDM Council with the contribution of over 300 professionals from over 100 organizations including cloud consumers, cloud service providers, technology providers and consultancies.

The framework provides organizations with the ability to assess their current state cloud data management capabilities and identify gaps for remediation. CDMC also enables cloud service and technology providers to audit and certify that their products and services support and automate key controls for the control of sensitive data in cloud environments.

Our CDMC course provides a comprehensive perspective on capabilities needed to manage and control data at scale in cloud environments.

The CDMC course: Six core components

The curriculum is organized into six core components covering 37 essential data management capabilities and 14 key controls.

Each capability is supported by a series of requirement statements including specific objectives, implementation advice, artefacts and scoring guidance that enables the evaluation of cloud data management initiatives.
