Whitepaper Forrester: Rank Yourself With The Digital Maturity Model

Retailers Should Evaluate Current eCommerce Organizations Against Four Criteria

Forrester’s digital maturity model provides a set of criteria to evaluate: 1) your overall digital maturity; 2) your eBusiness maturity; and 3) your digital marketing maturity. This framework helps identify gaps and recommends how to close them.

Few eBusinesses Have Mastered Everything They Should

In our 2013 survey, only 7% of respondents fell into a segment that we call Differentiate — those that exhibited high scores across all three disciplines. Elevate — those with one or two significant areas of weakness — made up the largest group of eBusiness professionals.

Opportunities Abound To Develop An Effective Business

Our model provides a prescriptive framework for organizational improvement and offers specific criteria for areas of improvement. Many of the criteria involve “agree/disagree” questions: Companies that “disagree” have an opportunity to adjust their behavior and that outcome and thus improve their scores in the future.
