Alation, Inc., a data intelligence company, is launching the Data Culture Maturity Assessment to help organizations evaluate the value of their data culture. This assessment applies the four core principles of the Alation Data Culture Maturity Model: Data Search & Discovery, Data Governance, Data Literacy, and Data Leadership.

The Data Culture Maturity Assessment is designed to enable organizations to tackle the challenge of measuring data value and the lack of consistent metrics. The framework was developed in collaboration with Alation’s global customer base, including 40% of Fortune 100 companies, to identify the most important metrics for assessing data culture maturity. It allows organizations to connect data initiatives to business objectives effectively.

Organizations can use the assessment to link specific metrics to Data Search & Discovery, Data Governance, Data Literacy, and Data Leadership in order to measure their impact.

“Real business value and competitive advantage lie in mature data practices,” said Julie Smith, director of data and analytics at Alation. “It’s how organizations can confidently handle data to achieve goals, make decisions, and add value. With the Data Culture Maturity Assessment, organizations can align data initiatives with business-specific goals and establish clear metrics to measure success. Data should be a collaborative venture, bridging various departments and roles, and laying the foundation for a future with it acting as a catalyst to drive innovation and strategic growth across the organization. This is our way of helping organizations to plot their path ahead.”
