Suggestions for introducing a Data Management Maturity(DMM) assessment

Looking for recommendations for introducing DMM assessment. We are based out in IOWA, appreciate any good leads to connect with a consulting firm/consultant who is certified.

Thank you!

Hi Emmanuel,
You may wish to check out people from the Experts link. For example, William McKnight has done this kind of work and has a video on his page: Raising the Information Management Maturity Curve.

Also, DATAVERSITY(R) has some good articles and free, recorded webinars. For example: see, https://www.dataversity.net/?s=%22maturity%22

Hi Emmanuel,

I'd echo what Michelle said, and add that many of the experts have freely available resources on our websites if you are looking for different approaches to maturity assessments. I'd argue that certification may not be as important as a methodology that fits your organization.

Best of luck,

Anthony

Data has proven to be a competitive differentiator. Top performers realize they need all their data; clean data; well-performing, catalogued, and secure data. They've grown their data science programs to utilize such data.

Company performance is highly correlated to data maturity. Metrics show a positive association between data maturity and financial performance. Company maturity is data maturity today so it's important to know where you stand.

Data maturity modeling is understanding where you stand vis-à-vis the possibilities across multiple dimensions. It is a cold, hard, quantifiable, objective look at data use in a company, department line-of-business, or whatever scope is modeled. Although the ratings are interesting and inform urgency, what's most interesting should be what the next level in each category looks like and making plans to get there.

I'm a little late to the party but thought I'd respond anyhow for historical reference sake.  Like many, we are just starting down the path of a formal data management program with a focus on data literacy/competency, assessing where we are at and where we want to be, and developing a strategy and roadmap.  Like many have mentioned, there are a large number of resources (including free) on the internet that can help out with all of these things. My organization also subscribes to Infotech and Gartner. The Infotech content is more tactical focused and I have used some great tools/templates from them for various maturity assessments as well as the followup roadmap templates/blueprints. They have really helped me out to get our program up and running and give me some target focus areas and actions. I'm not sure what the various subscription costs are but it might be well worth the cost to access all their information and tools - some of it is also free, so suggest poking around to see what is available. Good luck.
