Introducing a Big Data Maturity Model

April 16, 2014

You are unlikely to achieve strategic, organization wide, success in leveraging Big Data overnight. It more likely that will be a journey for you and your organization that may last several years. You will need to build up your organization’s Big Data strategy, skills and capabilities in stages. And demonstrate the business value every step of the way. So, if you are going on a journey you need a map to help you see where you are now (the “As Is” state), where you want to get to (the “To Be” state) and how to plan your journey. A Maturity Model (in combination with the Eight Building Blocks of Big Data framework) provides the basis for creating such a road map. It is a another tool that you can use to bring your peers up to speed, stimulate discussion, develop consensus on a shared vision and plan and finally to communicate plans and monitor status against objectives.
