The COBIT 5/DMM Practices Pathway Tool

Maximizing the Combined Effects of COBIT 5 and DMM

COBIT 5/Data Management Maturity (DMM)SM Practices Pathway Tool 

The COBIT 5/DMM Practices Pathway Tool assists in designing and/or improving an enterprise’s data management structures and practices by identifying connections between COBIT 5 and DMM so that practitioners gain mutually complementary sources of guidance. 

This tool improves the understanding of common practices and touchpoints that logically exist between an enterprise’s data and IT governance, which often share stakeholders. Since organizations by and large have not developed robust enterprise programs for data-as-an-asset, this tool enhances capability development in the context of IT governance.
