The Accreditation process consists of a one hour product demo where we ask the vendor to complete a number of activities to demonstrate core functionality.
A package of assets and associated metadata is provided to the vendors shortly beforehand in order that we are able to witness functionality such as ingestion in real time.
A failure in any of the 22 dimensions of the 10 Core means that we cannot accredit the system.
We provide a full breakdown of our scoring to the vendor after the demo to ensure that our scoring is accurate.
Products can be put through the accreditation multiple times, in fact we encourage that vendors take the time to improve the products functionality and be reassessed.
A driving force behind 10 core was to define and improve standards and practices across the industry.
