Authors: Serge Findling, Suya Xiong

Abstract

This IDC study is designed for business and technology leaders who are responsible for the management of the information asset. This study presents the results of IDC's 2015 Information Digital Transformation MaturityScape Benchmark Survey and should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: Information Digital Transformation (IDC #255774, May 2015). Together, they provide a comprehensive overview of the IDC's information digital transformation maturity model:

  • The study presents the results from quantitative research that will enable organizations to assess their information digital transformation maturity level against industry benchmarks.
  • In IDC MaturityScape: Information Digital Transformation (IDC #255774, May 2015), we described IDC's information digital transformation maturity framework, which identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for companies to effectively evolve to the information transformation as a critical enabler of the digital transformation of their enterprise.

This study enables organizations to answer the following questions:

  • How will information digital transformation affect the way we do business?
  • What is the role of information digital transformation in supporting business change?
  • Where are we on a maturity scale for information digital transformation competencies in terms of what the business needs? Where are our peers?
  • What's the path to improve and achieve the level of maturity that the business needs on its way to information digital transformation?

"IT organizations today need to treat data and information as they would treat any asset," says Serge Findling, vice president of research with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP) and the CIO Agenda program. "IDC believes that business leaders who recognize the real impact of digital technologies on their industry, customers, partners, and business practices will gain a real advantage over their competitors in the race to the future of the digitally enabled enterprise."
