This IDC Energy Insights study presents results of the first IDC BDA Maturity Model benchmark applied to 80 European utility companies with over $500 million revenue. This BDA maturity framework developed by IDC will assist utility companies in assessing their current capabilities and evaluate gaps in reaching higher levels of BDA maturity.
"The European utility industry recognizes that among the four pillars of IDC's 3rd Platform, Big Data and analytics will most significantly contribute to its companies' business innovation. European utilities are still in the early stages of Big Data and analytics maturity. However, we are seeing more and more use cases proving tangible benefits," says Roberta Bigliani, associate VP and head of EMEA, IDC Energy Insights. "It is critical that utilities mature homogenously across the five dimensions of Big Data and analytics — intent, data, technology, people, and process — or they risk being only as strong as their weakest dimension."
