5 Days to a Data Maturity Model for Data Governance: Day 3


You’ve made it to day 3 of “5 Days to a Data Maturity Model“. Day one was all about defining your scope and identifying the lowest maturity level you have. Day 2 covered finding a natural maturity model already occurring in your data. This is a good technique because it helps you build a maturity model that makes sense for your organization and the data you have, instead of trying to fit your data into pre-defined levels that may not make sense in the context of your data governance program. The next step is to define the highest maturity level, and we have a clever way of doing this that will keep your model consistent and easy to use. Read more…
