Date:February 15, 2024

Projective Group has today been recognised as a Certified Partner Founder of the Data Excellence Programme administered by the EDM Council, as one of just six organisations worldwide. As the first and only independent programme designed to measure and recognise data management capability at the organisational level, this announcement reflects Projective Group’s commitment and contribution to driving excellence and innovation in the data management community.

Projective Group (“the Group”) has been part of the EDM Council’s Authorised Partners Programme since 2017, upholding their global best-practice standards by delivering guidance, training, and assessments using the Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM) and Cloud Data Management Capabilities (CDMC) frameworks. Now the Group is also a Certified Partner Founder of the Data Excellence Programme, meaning that that it has achieved notable credentials in Data Excellence and is therefore qualified to support member firms in advancing their data management practices and ensuring trust in data across the enterprise.

Most recently, Projective Group has supported BT Group in becoming a founding member of the Data Excellence Programme through certifying that it meets the high standards required. As a result, BT Group is one of fifteen initial participating member firms who have been recognised by the EDM Council for their dedication to data management excellence and who are trusted to represent the Programme’s quality and integrity in the marketplace.

A key aspect of being a Certified Partner Founder is active participation in shaping the Data Excellence Programme. This means that, as well as being involved in the initial phase of development from which the formal Programme was created, Projective Group will also contribute insights, expertise, and recommendations to the programme’s evolution going forward. This underscores the Group’s commitment to being at the forefront of advancements in the data management community.
