Data has proven to be a competitive differentiator in different business sectors. The performance of any organization is highly correlated to the maturity of its data, so it’s important to know where you are in this process.
What is Data Maturity?
Data maturity is a measure used to determine where a company’s data quality, structure, distribution, security, and analytics are in their progress. A high level of maturity is reached when data has been deeply integrated and actively used in the organization’s strategic decision-making process.
The fact of having Big Data technology or using technological tools does not mean that a high level of maturity has been reached within a company.
