As a leading global telecommunications company, Verizon has been a staunch supporter of data and analytics and has recognized the need for improving data management and analytics best practices and education. By working with EDM Council, Verizon plans to leverage the Council’s proprietary Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM®), a formal framework used to provide guidance as well as assess a firm’s data management and analytics capabilities. DCAM’s unique approach utilizes a consistent scoring model that has been highly adopted by organizations globally that use data management frameworks.
