Business Strategy: IDC MaturityScape — Smart Buildings

Business Strategy: IDC MaturityScape — Smart Buildings

This IDC Energy Insights report describes IDC's smart building MaturityScape framework, which identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for companies to effectively foster the strategic maturity needed to compete in the new era of smart buildings. This maturity model is a two-part initiative:

  • In this study, we describe the framework and provide guidance for organizations of all sizes interested in advancing along the five maturity stages of the framework to maximize benefits derived from increasingly sophisticated deployment of smart building technology.
  • In a follow-up study, IDC will present the results from quantitative research that will enable organizations to assess their architecture's maturity level against industry benchmarks.

According to Jill Feblowitz, vice president, IDC Energy Insights, "IDC's smart building MaturityScape enables an organization to assess its architectural competency and maturity with respect to its leadership, organization, processes, deliverables, and technology. This maturity model provides CIOs, CFOs, COOs, chief sustainability officers (CSOs), energy management executives, chief building engineers, and other senior leaders with insights that will help their organization mature and thrive."
