The Army National Guard (ARNG) received an assessment directive from the Army CIO/G-6 to develop maturity measures for the current state of its data management practices as part of the Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program. A representative subset of ARNG personnel was identified for this assessment. Individual interview results were kept anonymous in the aggregated results reported to the ARNG and the Army CIO/G-6.
Data Blueprint conducted a comprehensive DM3® (Data Management Practices Assessment). The DM3® is a proprietary, scientific product offering developed by Data Blueprint. It evaluates the current state of an organization’s data management practices and brings insight into the strengths and weaknesses of data strategies, policies, procedures, organizational roles, IT development and on-going maintenance. An organization’s DM3® maturity scores are benchmarked against results from over 450 private and public organizations. This assessment delivers the inputs needed to make ROI-based decisions that will lead to the right investments in your data assets.
Data Blueprint’s DM3® identified the ARNG as lagging behind industry standards and overall benchmarks across all categories. Recommendations regarding data governance and data stewardship were made to address these deficiencies and serve as a roadmap for improvements.
