REALITY CHECK (As-is state of an organization)

How mature is the data that your organization houses?

The data readiness level (DRL) is a concept that refers to the quality and maturity of data. There are different stages (i.e., bands) that represent this quality and maturity, and each stage has its own specific requirements.

Inspired by Neil D. Lawrence – Cornell University

Data Readiness Levels

  • Band AContext: Band A represents data in context, it is about the data utility in terms of data appropriateness being able to solve the desired business problem.
  • Band B Representation: Band B is about data validity assessment in terms of data correctness (data quality) and data completeness.
  • Band CAccessibility: Band C is a category that deals with assessing data in terms of its accessibility, privacy, legalities, and other aspects.
