What does the Data Maturity Assessment measure?

The DMA provides a framework for assessing organizational data maturity within three categories:

Take the assessment


What does the organization want to use data to do? Includes the strategy, application, and analysis of data. 


How does the organization plan to use data to achieve its mission? Includes the quality, security, ethics, and infrastructure in place to work with data.


Who works with data and makes data-driven decisions? Includes the leadership, talent, and culture of an organization.

The simplicity of the way the assessment was organized into purpose, practice, and people made it so easy to use. And the framing of the results was so encouraging! I feel like this will help us with moving from being a little bit more reactive with our data to being proactive with our data, building on this foundation.
