The challenge

  • Do you have data and suspect that there’s an opportunity to do something more with it but you’re not sure what or how?
  • Are you being asked for investment to build a data team or platform but you’re not sure whether it will add value in the right area(s)?
  • Have you already invested in your data but you’re still struggling to get what you need or you’re wondering what’s next?

We can help you use your data to design the capability you need.

The solution

Our view is that before investing in data, organizations should take stock of their existing capabilities and identify gaps based on their specific business goals. This ensures that any investment is targeted towards desired outcomes.

Our Data Management Maturity Assessment (DMMA) is designed for this purpose – and more! We start with your business outcomes and curate a questionnaire from our comprehensive question bank to assess and understand the areas that you care about.

Your responses are plugged in to our proprietary route-finder to give you the shortest route to the outcomes you seek, step-by-step.

The outcome

  • Drive improvement in the areas that matter most by focusing resources where you need them.
  • Leverage data extracted from industry best practice and community knowledge to design your data strategy.
  • Save on high consultancy costs through self-assessment.
  • Track benefits of your data capability over time.

The mechanics

The DMMA is a self-assessment and planning platform designed to support organizations building sustainable data capabilities aligned with their corporate objectives.

It is comprised of over 400 questions covering 14 data knowledge domains, which are assessed in three core areas: organization; operations; and technology.

Users select their business outcome(s) and a corresponding questionnaire is produced by curating a series of questions across relevant data knowledge domains. The results are populated into our route-finder which will:

  • Create a road-map showing outcomes that need to be achieved and interdependencies between these that affect sequencing.
  • Suggest interventions based on a growing knowledge base of the impact of interventions on maturity.

The DMMA helps clients in Europe and North America save lots of time while navigating data management improvements. To see an example of how this works, read more about our work on Data strategy with Home Group.
