The Key to Leveraging Data to the Fullest
Organisations that want to overcome the modern data management challenges and ensure they leverage data to the fullest, need to take a mature approach to data management – which starts with aligning information ecosystems to business objectives. This can not only support those objectives but can often go even further by helping realise strategic advantages within the market. The opposite – failure to properly align data to business objectives – often increases costs, delays time-to-market, and introduces data security and reputational risk.
How do businesses align their information ecosystems with their business objectives? It starts with assessing their data maturity.
The Data Maturity Assessment with Ignition was highly valuable in helping us understand where and how we should be improving our data management to better support our business goals. The Ignition team are extremely knowledgeable and great to work with.

A Proven Approach to Assessing Data Maturity
Ignition has a proven approach to assessing an organisation’s data maturity and can provide practical recommendations on how to uplift the maturity of your data assets, enabling your business to realise the full potential of your data.
By providing clarity around the organisation’s current maturity level within a proven framework, a Data Maturity Assessment not only tells you how you’re currently doing, it also shows a clear path forward.
The Ignition Data Maturity Assessment will identify at which of the five levels your business currently sits overall, as well as individually across the data assessment areas (Data-Driven Business, Data Governance, Data Management, and Data Infrastructure) and how you can reach the desired level.
1. Data Drudgery
Many silos of data exist and there is no organisational vision of data.
2. Tactical Data
Some raw data consolidation exists but data quality issues undermine data value.
3. Focused Data
The organisation has established a clear end goal and measurable results are emerging.
4. Transformational Data
Evidence-based decision-making is commonplace and data is trusted.
5. Strategic Data
Data has evolved to become a strategic asset and enabler for business strategy.
Data Assessment Areas
The Ignition Data Maturity Assessment will review data management systems and processes across four critical areas of the business.
1. Data-Driven Business
Data and analytics that support transformation and achievement of business goals.
2. Data Governance
(Including Data Quality)
Enterprise-wide structures and policies to appropriately manage data and accessibility.
3. Data Infrastructure
Crafting the right structures and data and analytical tools to support the enterprise.
4. Data Management
Resources, skills and capabilities to support the business in making the best use of data.
A Roadmap for Improvement
Once the review is complete, Ignition will prepare a findings report showing your maturity rating across the various maturity and data dimensions.
We will work collaboratively with you to agree upon a target maturity level for your organisation and provide an indicative roadmap of key initiatives to achieve it with budget allocation to help with your forward planning and market engagement.
