What to consider when analyzing a company for maturity

April 17, 2008

  • Projects: The focus is on determining what projects are active and in the pipeline. The focus is on data collection.

  • Applications: The focus is on determining which applications exist, their purpose, and their owners. The focus, again, is on basic data collection.

  • Infrastructure: The focus is on determining what infrastructure assets exist within the organization. The focus remains on basic data collection.

  • People: The focus is on determining what people exist and what their skills are. The focus, again, is still on basic data collection.

  • Process: The focus is on determining what processes are performed by the enterprise and identifying their owners. The focus remains on basic data collection.

  • Information: At this level, the key entries (e.g., customer, employee, item) are identified. Associative entities or reports are excluded. Only a baseline of entities critical to the operations of the enterprise is captured. This is the genesis of an enterprise metadata repository.

  • Overall IT portfolio: The simple recognition of a need for an overall IT portfolio is adequate.
