Raising the Information Management Maturity Curve: An Increase in Data Maturity Correlates to an Increase in Business Success

Maturity frameworks have varying levels of data management maturity. Each level corresponds to not only increased data maturity, but also increased organizational maturity and bottom-line ROI. There are recommended targets to achieve an effective information management program. William’s maturity framework sequences the information management activities for your consideration. It is based on real client roadmaps. Information Management Curve Assessment is a wealth of ideas for key quick wins to benefit the organization’s information management program.
