Capability Assessment

What's your organisation's data capability?

The DataIQ Leaders Capability Assessment provides data and analytics function leads with a model to understand where their data organisation is strong and where there is room for improvement.

3 in 10 organisations describe their data and analytics function as “nearing maturity”, with 32% saying they are still in the early stages of their journey.

Our 2017 research survey also revealed that 49% of respondents cited the quality of available candidates as their top recruitment challenge and 45% highlighted the overall lack of candidates as key issue. Either way, there is a clear skills shortage and a need for data and analytics leaders to have a true understanding of where they can improve their capability.

The DataIQ Leaders Capability Assessment will assess 5 core capabilities across 4 key data functions.


  • Leadership
  • Strategy
  • Skills
  • Technology
  • Governance


  • Customer Analytics
  • Data Management
  • Business Intelligence
  • Innovation & Data Science

Once you have completed your assessment, you will receive a full report of the results, where we will help you identify higher risk areas you should address and we will tell you where you rank alongside the wider industry via our benchmarking tool.

This will provide you with the insight you need to:

  • Benchmark against the competition
  • Identify high risk areas within your data function
  • Compare your skills gaps with the industry
  • Build business cases for investment
  • Produce skills development programmes for teams and individuals
