vCDM now as Software-As-A-Service

Vector’s calibration data solution vCDM 21.1 is now at the push of a button available as software-as-a-service. Collaboration within teams becomes easier and investment costs are reduced.

The Vector Calibration Data Management System vCDM supports teams in successful collaboration on ECU calibration development projects. The vCDM server makes the data available centrally to all project members, data changes by multiple users are merged without conflict and are consistently traceable across all versions.

Calibration teams often face internal, organisational challenges during implementation. Setup and operation of the vCDM server as well as the required database must be coordinated with their own IT department, and budgets must be planned for the long term. Often, the internal costs exceed the license fees incurred.

vCDM Software-as-a-Service addresses these challenges: The vCDM server is provided in the Vector Team Services collaboration platform. Vector Team Services is based on Microsoft Azure. Azure is GDPR-compliant and certified after the new international standard ISO/IEC 27701 (Privacy Information Management System PIMS), whose requirements are significantly more concrete and detailed than those of the GDPR.

In the self-service portal of the Vector Team Service platform, users register independently and manage their user data. Subsequently, it is possible to define which employee has which authorisations in vCDM. The subscription for vCDM for Vector Team Services includes all costs for hardware, software, and operation of the vCDM server including the required database. vCDM for Vector Team Services thus makes it possible to cover long-term investment costs from project budgets and to support collaboration immediately.
