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.

"IDC's Information Digital Transformation MaturityScape offers senior leaders a framework to assess their enterprise challenges and create a sound information transformation strategy."
