This IDC study describes IDC's Big Data and Analytics (BDA) MaturityScape. It identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions that organizations should consider to effectively develop BDA competency. With the opportunity to unlock the value held in information assets comes the need to navigate technology alternatives, reengineer business processes, and ensure the availability of appropriately skilled staff. IDC's Big Data and Analytics MaturityScape is a framework of five stages, critical measures, outcomes, and actions that organizations should consider to effectively advance along the successive stages of BDA competency.
"IDC's BDA MaturityScape is a maturity model that enables organizations to assess their BDA competency, use the baseline to define short- and long-term goals, plan for improvements, prioritize technology and make staff investment decisions, and bring business value into view," said Dan Vesset, vice president, IDC's Business Analytics and Big Data research. "This MaturityScape can help uncover gaps in current BDA competency levels among business units or between business and IT groups, thus providing a framework for all the stakeholders to collaborate to advance the organization toward a common goal."
