What is a Data Maturity Assessment?

It is a systematic evaluation of an organisation’s capabilities in the sphere of data management, analytics, and utilisation. Conducted against the areas of People, Process, and Technology, the assessment helps identify the current stage of an organisation’s data journey, from nascent capabilities through to being mature, data-driven organisations. This assessment ensures that businesses are leveraging their data effectively and identifies areas for growth and enhancement. 

Typical Data Maturity Roadblocks

  • Data Governance Specialist
    Inadequate Data Governance: Without a robust Data Governance Framework, it can be a struggle to implement guardrails, protect, and ensure the quality of data. This can lead to inconsistent data practices, non-compliance with regulations and heightened risk of a data breach.

    Misaligned Technology Infrastructure: If an organisation's technology stack is not aligned with its data strategy and future data maturity goals, it can stifle growth. Outdated or inappropriate stacks can slow down processing, hinder operability, and limit insights.
