TDWI Maturity Models & APOS Live Data Gateway

TDWI has recently deployed assessment programs for data management maturity and analytics maturity models, both of which identify trends and place heavy emphasis on establishing sound data architecture and data governance. Maturity models generally present a framework that allows organizations to judge their practices in relation to peer organizations and develop strategies for optimization.

APOS Live Data Gateway is a middleware platform which provides virtualized data connection and data transformation to enable live data connectivity and expanded data source options for SAP Analytics Cloud, with a primary focus on non-SAP data sources. Its data virtualization and self-service modelling capabilities can help organizations meet many of their data management and analytics challenges.

TDWI Data Management Maturity Model

The TDWI Data Management Maturity Model Assessment uses research sponsored by Denodo and SAP, and is authored by Deanne Larson, Ph.D., whose research focuses on enterprise data strategy, agile analytics, and data science best practices. She identifies a number of trends presenting challenges for data management, including:

  • Data Fabric - establishing an environment that unifies architecture and provides services or technologies to help organizations manage data.
  • Diverse Data Types - making diverse data types from diverse sources available to increase value from analytics.
  • Hybrid Cloud Environments - mitigating the risks inherent in rapid migration of data to Cloud environments, and managing the expansion of that data.

TDWI Analytics Maturity Model

The TDWI Analytics Maturity Model Assessment uses research sponsored by a number of analytics vendors, including SAP, and is authored by Fern Halper, Ph.D., whose research focuses on advanced analytics, focusing on predictive analytics, social media analysis, text analytics, cloud computing. She identifies trends presenting challenges for analytics, including:

  • Self-Service across the Analytics Life Cycle - enabling business analysts and non-technical users to access trustworthy data and derive insights.
  • The Cloud - Optimizing Cloud and Multicloud deployments and services using "best-of-breed" software and service providers.
  • Unifying Data Platforms - using cloud-based data warehouses and virtualization to achieve high data quality and trusted analytics.
