TDWI Releases New Assessment and Data Management Guide | News

SEATTLE, WA, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TDWI, the leading source for in-depth data analysis and management education and research, today announced its new online assessment tool to assess the maturity of a company’s data management. This questionnaire objectively measures employees’ understanding and management of their data, enabling them to meet the data management needs of their organization.

The accompanying TDWI Data Management Maturity Model Assessment Guide provides an introduction to what drives the need for data management (including data structures, increasing diversity of data types , hybrid cloud environments, AI and other modern analytics, and augmented intelligence). The model provides a framework for businesses to understand where they are, where they have been, and where they still need to go to support strong data management. The model also provides guidance to companies early in their data management journey by helping them understand best practices used by more mature companies.

Today, more organizations than ever before realize that they need to use data and analytics to become more competitive. Overwhelmingly, they agree that they will need to undergo a digital transformation to be competitive in the future. Due to this new emphasis on data, companies are also recognizing the need for improved data management as it helps them understand, integrate, access and protect their data in order to get the most out of it.

“Augmented by the expansion of data and analytics to a wider audience in the enterprise, organizations are democratizing access to data and moving towards data-driven decision-making at all levels and business functions. To support this expansion, organizations need to focus on improving their data management, as it is the foundation of data-driven decision-making,” noted report author Deanne Larson, Ph.D. .

The assessment quantifies a company’s progress toward mature data management across five key dimensions: organization, resources, architecture, data lifecycle, and governance. Because organizations may be at different stages in each dimension, the assessment tool scores each dimension separately and provides an overall score that participants can compare with other organizations.

The assessment is also linked to TDWI’s Executive Program: Advancing Data Management Strategies, June 1-2, 2022, a free virtual event for data and analytics managers to dive deeper into the findings of the assessment.
