About the Webinar

The Data Management Maturity (DMM) model is a framework for the evaluation and assessment of an organization’s data management capabilities. This model—based on the Capability Maturity Model pioneered by the U.S. Department of Defense for improving software development processes—allows an organization to evaluate its current state data management capabilities, discover gaps to remediate, and identify strengths to leverage. In doing so, this assessment method reveals organizational priorities, business needs, and a clear path for rapid process improvements.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Describe the DMM model, its purpose and evolution, and how it can be used as a roadmap for assessing and improving organizational data management and data management maturity
  • Discuss how to get the most out of a DMM assessment, including its dependencies and requirements for use
