Presenting the DMAT
The digital maturity assessment tool (DMAT) has been developed for companies and organizations to be able to assess their digital maturity on six key dimensions and has been applied already by over 900 companies globally. The data derived is applied for research while an individual mini-report is generated for the specific company as well, with the assessment guiding on how to develop their digital maturity further.
In the below video session, Annabeth Aagaard, Associate Professor and Director of Interdisciplinary Centre for Digital Business Development from Aarhus University presents the DMAT. The session was hosted by this year’s Digital Around the World conference – a 24 hours non-stop virtual conference which was held October 20-21. The conference brought together a range of top-level speakers discussing the latest trends in digital transformation. The DMAT was presented under the thematic area “Emerging technologies for digital transformation”.
Digital maturity—a measure of an organization’s ability to create value through digital—is a key predictor of success for companies that engage in digital transformation in any aspect of their business model. Assessing one’s current level of digital maturity is a first step towards increasing company performance, streamline processes, and making use of technologies to enhance interaction with customers and employees, and deliver excellent customer experience at the same time.
The purpose of the session is to stimulate discussion and promote digital transformation of business models as well as synergies between innovators, researchers, developers, politicians and civil society actors.
About the DMAT
The Digital Maturity Assessment Tool (DMAT) is an online tool that, based on a questionnaire, assesses digital maturity across six dimensions: Strategy, culture, organisation, processes, technology as well as customers and partners. The DMAT allows both private companies and public organisations across different industries, company sizes and geography to map their digital maturity and key digital development areas.
- Is non-commercial and free to use.
- Is research-based and developed by Aarhus University.
- Is suitable for all types and sizes of organisations across industries.
- Provides a clear visualisation of your organisation’s digital maturity.
- Provides you with inspiration presented in a mini report.
- Provides insights for the digital transformation journey.
- Provides your results benchmarked against sector average.
The assessment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and is a valuable tool to kick-start a digital transformation. Based on the results and scores provided by the DMAT, the organisation will receive inspiration for which dimension to focus on and which action to take in their digital transformation.
