Digital Maturity Assessment Tool
Measure the digital maturity of your business
The Digital Maturity Assessment Tool (DMAT) allows private and public companies to assess their digital maturity on a number of parameters. By answering the questions in the assessment, the tool will generate an overview of your company's digital maturity and a mini-report that guides you on how to further develop and improve the digital performance of your company.Start the DMAT
The DMAT assesses digital maturity on 6 dimensions: Strategy, Culture, Organisation, Processes, Technology and, finally, Customers and Partners.
Your results will be benchmarked against the specific sector your company is part of and your working location (for example Denmark, Scandinavia or, if located outside Scandinavia, the specific continent).
