Measuring Data Management Practice Maturity

This presentation provides guidance to organizations wanting to increase the maturity of their data management (DM) practices. Increasing DM maturity levels will positively impact the coordination among organizations, individuals, and systems. Project has assessed the maturity of more than 200 self-reported organizational DM practices. Using an SEI/CMMI derived process-improvement framework, the assessment highlights:

  1. various stages of DM maturity;
  2. relatively weak and strong DM practice areas; and
  3. DM community implications.

Results indicate the approach’s utility; they also indicate that a wide range exists in the current DM state-of-the-practice; and point out a road map for suggesting improvements.
