IT Maturity Model
An IT maturity model is a tool that indicates the current development of an IT organization. IT maturity models measure the progress of people, processes, and technology. Maturity may range from low-level chaos to high-level strategic partnership. Maturity models are common across all business disciplines.
IT maturity models are used to help organizations understand quantitatively where they are (an as-is state) and, based on their mission and goals, where they want to be (a to-be state). You can also apply an IT maturity model, or a maturity assessment, to identify gaps between the current and future state.
