Value of Information Subgroup
At present, a
large part of the improvement project concerns the assessment of the
organisation’s information management maturity. This typically begins by
base-lining and benchmarking the maturity of information management capabilities
within an organisation across areas such as IT, Processes, Skills and Culture.
A number of
Information Management Maturity models have been developed to assist
organisations with the process of base-lining their current position ('As is'),
targeting future status ('To be') and measuring progress. The rationale for such
tools is that 'If you don't know where you are and don't know where you are
headed, it is likely to be an unsuccessful or long and expensive journey.
These models include the following:
HMG Information Assurance Maturity Model
The IA Maturity Model and Assessment Framework are
designed to ensure that treating information as a key business asset is embedded
within the culture of a Department, its delivery partners and arm’s length
bodies, and that common standards are applied across Government in response to
the growing need for Departments to securely share assured information to meet
Transformational Government objectives.
Information Management Maturity model
6-stage model that tracks maturity levels.
Business Intelligence / Performance Management Maturity Model
stage model that reviews culture, philosophy and technology to assess progress.
The Data Warehouse
Business Intelligence Maturity Model with a technology-orientated 6-stage
Maturity Model Adoption Curve.
Data Warehouse Maturity Model – link to same slides as above (4)
a Maturity Model framework to improve management processes and technical
development within an organization.
Evolution Maturity Model
Where does your organization stand in the Information Evolution Model, and
how do you get where you need to be?
model that uses 4 assessment criteria (People, Culture, Process & IT). The model
now has an established benchmark database of over 1000 organisations globally
from across all sectors. For example, on average the public sector tends to lag
one stage behind the private sector and the biggest gap/cause is in culture not
technology. Similarly, within sectors, specific industries tend to have higher
or lower levels of maturity with levels of competition being a key driver for
organisations achieving higher maturity.
