Abstract:Since Bright Cape was founded in 2014 as Big Data consultancy, they designed their own Bright Cape Maturity Model for general use in their projects. Over the years, the integration of Big Data in purchasing is of increasing importance, because they can strengthen each other. There are already several Big Data Maturity Models and Purchasing Maturity Models, but there are not yet any models where Big Data and Purchasing are together in the same maturity model. Therefore, the goal of this research is to design a Big Data Purchasing Maturity Model. The new model is based on two different methods. First, an extended literature research was performed on three main subjects of the new model, namely Big Data, Purchasing and Maturity Models. Second, eighteen internal interviews were performed and seven external interviews held for information from the field. These results were coded and transformed into an ideal situation of Big Data integrations in Purchasing. There are eight best case scenarios created on the dimensions of the Industry 4.0 Purchasing Maturity Model. Based on these scenarios, the model is further developed. This study contributes a scorecard for the Big Data Purchasing Maturity Model with four different levels.
