TIBCO Joins the EDM Council
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Cloud solutions solve major cost and scalability challenges for businesses, and cloud usage is only projected to grow. Gartner reports that “in 2023, end-user spending is expected to reach nearly $600 billion” for public cloud services. As more companies adopt modern cloud solutions, they need the ability to properly manage their data, both in the cloud and in hybrid environments. Many companies are seeking best practices for data management either on-premises or increasingly in hybrid and in the cloud, including the EDM Council’s Cloud Data Management Capability (CDMC) framework. 

TIBCO is excited to announce we have recently become a member of the EDM Council alongside a number of TIBCO customers and partners, including founding members Morgan Stanley and London Stock Exchange Group, Accenture, the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). 

Who is the EDM Council?

The Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Council is a cross-industry, non-profit global association created to lead data best practices, standards, and education. From strategy to implementation, the EDM Council helps over 15,000 professionals confidently address their data management and analytics challenges while meeting regulatory compliances. 

The EDM Council focuses on several key areas:

  • Implementing best practices
  • Training and certification
  • Analyzing and benchmarking data management practices
  • Driving standards to enable innovation
  • Networking the global community
  • Supporting data-related regulation and compliance

EDM Council’s CDMC Framework

EDM Council’s CDMC framework

The CDMC Framework is a best practice assessment and certification framework for the management and control of data in cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid-cloud environments. CDMC focuses and expands on capabilities critical to the control of sensitive data. It highlights areas where modern cloud platform features present opportunities for data standardization and automation.

The CDMC Framework has six major areas:

  1. Governance and Accountability: organizations “have clear accountability, controls, and governance for data migrated to or created in cloud environments”
  2. Cataloging and Classification: organizations “create, maintain, and use data catalogs that are both comprehensive and consistent”
  3. Accessibility and Usage: organizations “manage, enforce, and track entitlements and ensure that data access, use, and outcomes of data operations are done in an appropriate and ethical matter”
  4. Protection and Privacy: organizations “collect evidence that demonstrates compliance with the organizational policy for data sensitivity and protection”
  5. Data Lifecycle: organizations “define and apply a data lifecycle management framework, ensuring that data quality in cloud environments is managed across the data lifecycle”
  6. Data and Technical Architecture: organizations “ensure that data movement into, out of, and within cloud environments is understood and that architectural guidance is provided on key aspects of the design of cloud computing solutions”
