Information Maturity Model
From MIKE2.0 Methodology
-> You are here: Information Maturity Model
The Information Maturity Model (IMM) is at the core of the MIKE2.0 approach to Data Investigation. The IMM was defined by the Meta Group and proposes five levels of maturity that an organisation may be assessed at based on their information management practices. Other experts in the field, such as Larry English, have defined similar five-stage models. These models are meant to provide an information-oriented equivalent to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM), which is used to assess an enterprise’ software development maturity level.
The following table contains the IMM Capability Matrix that describes the five stages of IMM initially outlined by Meta Group. This model was then extended significantly and then published as part of an initial assessment task in MIKE2.0. The 5 levels of information maturity, which can be summarized as follows:
Note that the maturity levels as defined here do not correlate in full to the Meta-defined IMM capabilities. The 5 levels of information maturity as summarized here form the basis of the Information Maturity QuickScan.
The Meta-defined IMM capabilities were used to inspire these definitions. These definitions may evolve in the future as part of the MIKE2.0 initiative. At present, the definitions of the 5 maturity levels listed above combined with the IM QuickScan model (described below), form the basis for the information maturity assessment model.
An alternative, but compatible, approach to measuring the governance aspects of information maturity has been proposed by the IBM sponsored InfoGov Community. If this approach is used, the results should still be applied at the same points in the MIKE2.0 WBS.
