Treliant Becomes Inaugural Authorized Partner of the Cloud Data Management Capabilities (CDMC) Industry Framework Established by the EDM Council

Washington, DC, January 12, 2022 – Treliant, who recently acquired Vox Financial Partners, has joined a group of EDM Council member companies to become a CDMC Authorized Partner. Partner firms are trained and certified by the EDM Council and are licensed to deliver CDMC-based assessments and certifications. This distinction allows Treliant to use CDMC with its client base.

CDMC is a comprehensive framework for evaluating cloud data management capabilities to instill greater trust and accelerate cloud adoption. CDMC comprises six components, 14 capabilities, and 37 sub-capabilities that allow companies to manage their cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid-cloud environments effectively. The six components encompass data governance and accountability, cataloging and classification, data accessibility and usage, data protection and privacy, data lifecycle, and technical architecture. In addition, CDMC includes 14 critical controls for managing sensitive data in the cloud.  

“Our CDMC framework will play an integral role in the adoption of cloud data management best practices across numerous industries around the world and the Authorized Partner Program will be critical in accelerating that adoption,” said Mike Meriton, COO, and Co-founder of the EDM Council. “Treliant has been a great addition to the CDMC Partner Program and will play an important role in creating awareness and generating traction around the framework moving forward.”

“Most organizations are expanding their use of cloud at an accelerated pace to maintain their competitive edge and enable their ability to scale and innovate,” said Dave Lindsay, Managing Director of Treliant Capital Markets. “The COVID-19 pandemic has further increased the speed and scale of cloud adoption. But there is still work to be done to ensure that data in the cloud is well managed, secured, and permissioned in a multi-jurisdictional context. Following the CDMC framework will increase firms’ trust in their cloud data, resulting in broad industry adoption.”
The CDMC framework was developed over an 18-month period by EDM Council’s CDMC Workgroup, which included participants from over 100 companies, including Treliant, and 300 subject matter experts.  All the financial cloud providers participated—Google, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and IBM—as well as key cloud solution providers such as Snowflake, and a majority of leading financial industry firms and major consultancies.
