This study presents IDC's 2013 Big Data and Analytics Maturity Benchmark Survey results. This study should be viewed as a companion to IDC MaturityScape: Big Data and Analytics — A Guide to Unlocking Information Assets (IDC #239771, March 2013). In the previous study, we described IDC's BDA MaturityScape framework that identifies the stages, critical measures, outcomes, and actions required for companies to effectively develop BDA competency.
The current study presents research results that serve as basis for organizations in assessing their BDA maturity against market and industry benchmarks; use the baseline to define short- and long-term goals and plan for improvements; prioritize BDA technology, staffing, and other related investment decisions; and uncover maturity gaps among business units and between business and IT groups — all in the quest to improve or optimize decision making.
