Digital maturity is a process which the organization goes through in responding appropriately to the digital environment. It does not happen suddenly but takes time.

Understanding the level of digital maturity of an organization is imperative for deciding on digital technologies for implementation. Only technologies that aid in incrementing business outcomes has to be implemented otherwise will result in expenditure and not an investment for the organization. Digital Maturity is also considered as an indicator in understanding whether the organization will adapt in the ever evolving digital era.
