We regularly post polls on LinkedIn on topics of data management and data lineage to collect insights on the experiences and thoughts of our colleagues. We would like to share these insights with you as well.

TODAY’S POLL:

RESULTS:

1. 64 % of respondents assessed the maturity level as ‘ad-hoc’.

2. In 18% of cases, respondents indicated that their companies develop data management.

3. 9% of respondents said that they currently implement data management.

4. 9% replied that they have a fully operational data management function in place.

We interpret these results as the following:

I would like to share with you my impressions based on these results. The outcomes received from the LinkedIn poll are quite different from the outcomes obtained by performing a Data management maturity scan HERE.
You can see a comparison of the outcomes in the attached image. The progress that many companies have made in the development of data management is far more optimistic in the Data Crossroads results. The difference in the outcomes can be attributed to a larger number of participants.
During 2020, more than 700 companies worldwide have performed the maturity scan. We have analysed the results and published them in January 2021. You can download this report free of charge HERE.
