Before you begin your journey, you need to assess the maturity (or readiness) of your organization and business environment to move toward analytics. IBM offers a free Analytics Quick Assessment (AQA) to help your organization understand your starting point. The AQA is conducted at a fairly high level by an IBM Assessment Leader and includes business and technical subject matter experts from the organization being reviewed.

A full analytics assessment may involve many steps, but for the AQA, we have reduced this to a set of key steps that help to identify some opportunities for analytics near-term steps going forward. AQA will help identify key pain points and projects that could provide high returns on investment. It is also a good way for departments to get started with analytics by helping to identify a project that may be implemented quickly and provides significant return for a small investment of time and effort.

There are many reasons why an agency leader may consider an AQA:
