by Andrew White  |  October 25, 2016  |  1 Comment

My colleagues Doug Laney and Michael Moran just published Information Management Maturity — Critical Challenges, Real Remedies.

Data and analytics leaders such as chief data officers who apply Gartner’s enterprise information management maturity model can easily identify specific root-cause roadblocks to EIM achievements. By participating in Gartner interactive workshops, many have discovered approaches to improve.

Doug has been very busy this year helping lead the update to our Enterprise Information Management (EIM) maturity model.  He has been on a tear, updating the model itself; creating a self-assessment, producing an EIM program template, and now sharing with this note some of the best/next practices to help you circumnavigate challenges with EIM:

While you can “rate” this note online, please do send specific feedback to the author as well.  We crave direct feedback on how to improve our work. Thanks.
