What You'll Do

You will strengthen the impact of, and provide recommendations on, business information to be available and shared consistently across the organization through the identification, definition and analysis of how information assets aid strategies and business outcomes. You will be responsible for discovering the data and analytics requirements for information for all uses.

Primary Responsibilities Include:

  • Influence information strategy: Partnering with business unit leadership, and through the rationalization of the information value chain, you will provide strategic recommendations to maximize the value of information assets via their creation, access and use.
  • Maximize value derived from data and analytics: Foster value creation using the organization's data assets, as well as the external data ecosystem. This includes aiding value creation through data exploitation, envisioning data-enabled strategies, as well as enabling all forms of business outcomes through analytics, governance, and enterprise information policy.
  • Surface information priority: Assess the benefits and the risks of information using tools such as business capability models to build an information-centric view to quickly visualize what information matters most to the organization based on the defined business strategy.
  • Enhance decision-making: Use business information models to provide the organization with a future-state view of the information landscape that is unencumbered by the specific data implementation details imposed by proprietary solutions or technologies. Assist decision design.
  • Enable effective data and analytics governance: Suggest who can take what actions with what information, and under what circumstances. Assist data and analytics leaders, and business and IT leadership in developing information governance processes and structures.
  • Conduct business information modeling: Create and manage business information models in all their forms, including conceptual models, relational database designs, message models and others.
  • Enable enterprise information management: Ensure that the architecture is used as a lens and a filter to identify, prioritize and execute the data and analytic initiatives with clear line of sight to enterprise strategies and business outcomes.
