The idea of a data strategy isn’t a new concept; this summit is focused on the importance of positioning a data strategy to support a company’s business and analytics needs. Strategy—whether business or data—isn’t a cookie-cutter solution that can be applied in the same manner across different companies. A data strategy is a plan designed to improve all the ways you acquire, store, manage, share, and use data. Companies have different application systems, varying business processes, differing data management strengths and challenges, and changing business priorities. These are but a few of the reasons that companies’ data strategy initiatives differ.
TDWI’s Data Strategy Assessment Tool and Maturity Model allows businesses to identify their individual data strengths, needs, and challenges. The assessment measures maturity across five key dimensions to identify the various needs and challenges to position within a data strategy initiative.
This presentation will provide an analysis of the assessment results to date. We’ll also review emerging trends, identify the similarities and differences across the survey audience, and discuss some example next steps based on maturity levels in each dimension.
