IDC’s Information Digital Transformation MaturityScape enables an organization to assess its competency and maturity and use a baseline in defining short- and long-term goals and plans for improvements. It also enables executives to prioritize and obtain guidance in leveraging and managing their fastest-growing asset: the information asset. With this document, an organization can use a comprehensive set of objective criteria to benchmark its maturity against an industry benchmark — in the quest to achieve facts-based and data-driven decision making and derive desired outcomes based on business-oriented organizational goals.
