Description:

This will be aligned to a group for Data Governance within the Office of the Chief Data Officer. This group is undergoing major philosophical change (being spearheaded by the new Chief Data Officer, Paul Tatseos) that have been very well received within the team as well as the organization. This resource will be helping out Michelle Wick (TEK former of our that we placed at NT who converted over to an FTE) and her team on defining the dimensions of their assets.

These Business Data Analysts will be doing more business-centric modeling (conceptual). Shaun does not want them to be "a logical & physical modeler" or someone who is too technical. For their group they are implementing a canonical model - a design pattern used to communicate between different data formats. This is essentially creating a data model which is a superset of all the others ("canonical"), and create a "translator" module or layer to/from which all existing modules exchange data with other modules.

They will be responsible for defining business data requirements, documenting process definitions and process re-engineering, performing data quality analysis, incident triage, and defining systems integration requirements. They will be working with individuals & stakeholders across different business areas (i.e. Data Governance, Wealth Management, other LOBs) to understand a variety of systems that exist in silos that also share dependencies in data. They will be helping to lead requirements efforts including creating detailed current state and future state process diagrams, documenting use cases and assumptions, and mitigating project dependencies.

Top Skills:

  1. Exceptional at interviewing business partners ensure refined requirements

  2. Experience with Business and/or Data Quality Rules

This process is end to end data management. Senior management is supporting the build out of data. Now they are holistically reconciling all of wealth management data.
