Information Technology Managers Academy XV

ITMA XV logoITMA XV prepared the State for the future of IT by developing the first California Data Reference Model (CalDRM). The DRM is part of the Enterprise Architecture Framework needed for Service Oriented Architecture. The DRM is a business tool used to describe, define, and share data among entities. This allows the development and use of applications among different entities (i.e., shared services). In addition to the CalDRM, ITMA XV also developed the DRM Governance Process and DRM User Guide. The DRM Governance Process provides guidance on managing the DRM at the state level. The DRM User Guide provides an example of creating a DRM at the project level.

The CalDRM has been accepted by the State CIO and the Enterprise Architecture and Standards Committee to be used in the development of California's Enterprise Architecture Framework
