About the VTCP

  1. We don’t certify vendors.  We certify the Data Vault 2 components embedded in the TOOLS that vendors produce
  2. We certify the specific version of the tool that we test against, which does not guarantee a future version of the tool still meets the standards
  3. We are issuing 2 year tool certifications that expire, and must be renewed in order to continue participation in the program.
  4. Just because a tool version is certified, does not guarantee that it will be utilized correctly to build Data Vault 2.0 solutions that meet the standards.
  5. The new VTCP program (starting Q1-2022) will require vendors to also train their sales, marketing, and consulting staff to follow rigorous standards in implementation.

VaultSpeed & Empowered Holdings, LLC

Empowered Holdings, LLC and Scalefree teamed up in 2019 to work with VaultSpeed to get their Data Vault automation tool certified to Data Vault 2.0 standards. We are happy to announce that as of 2020, they have passed the tool certification process.

As of January 2021, Empowered Holdings LLC merged its Data Vault practices with DataVaultAlliance Holdings LLC. Going forward we (DVA) are currently developing a world-wide Vendor Tool Certification Program. This program and it’s details will be available to any software or hardware vendor interested in participating.

Why did VaultSpeed choose to be certified?

Vaultspeed values the Data Vault Standard for all the benefits it brings like resilience to change and repeatable patterns. Data Vault provides the foundation for automation. Being able to work with a well defined standard that is documentedused across the world, updated and safeguarded over time is key. In fact, this enables everyone to speak the same language. This emphasizes the importance of the Data Vault Alliance, led by founding father Dan Linstedt, as the organisation that sets the Data Vault standard. For these reasons we also want to have VaultSpeed Data Vault 2.0 certified by the DVA in order to prove that VaultSpeed provides the means to work by that very same standard.
