Business Strategy: IDC MaturityScape — Government Acquisition Management
This IDC Government Insights report discusses the IDC Government Acquisition Management MaturityScape, which provides a set of structured stages, dimensions, and sub-dimensions that describe how well the organization — its people, processes, and technologies — can reliably and sustainably maximize acquisitions.
"The ability to efficiently purchase and deploy transformative IT technologies such as Big Data and cloud is a key enabler of effectively delivering mission and reducing the risk to government of failed acquisitions and systems," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights. This IDC MaturityScape offers a structured approach and establishes a yardstick against which an organization can benchmark its acquisition management capabilities against mission goals and plan improvements. "Agencies should continuously reassess their progress and benchmark progress against the maturity model provided in this document," she adds.
