The big picture: Work closely with IT technical service providers to ensure outsourced work packages are delivered to specifications, meeting key parameters of quality, schedule, cost, security, performance, and scalability.

Why it matters: Develop experience working in Data Governance, Data Quality, and Enterprise Data Management, ideally in the Financial Services with focus on Master Data management.

The backdrop: Integrate change management across the organization to incorporate data governance principles into programs and practices, including through the communication of technical concepts to a variety of stakeholders at all organizational levels.

Between the lines: Safeguard that your process applies a strong knowledge base of relevant systems/applications as it relates to workflow, process, and problem resolution and recommends improvements.

On the flip side: Make headway so that your workforce collaborates with the Information Owners, Data Stewards and Business Analysts to roll out new capabilities and support data governance initiatives.

Be smart: Verify that your team is involved in data standards, data policies, metadata management, data governance strategies, data profiling, and source to target mapping documentation.

How it works: Support the development, maintenance and implementation of common language for enterprise data managed through a standardized data governance platform to organize and maintain data domains and data taxonomy.

Go deeper: Establish that your workforce is responsible for identifying and detailing data sources for each line of business, product and legal entity and classify them (Systems of Origin, System of Record and Authoritative Data Sources).

The bottom line: Customize lead efforts to maintain and revise the data access governance policy, inclusive of data access controls and processing standards, in partnership with the Data Privacy office and legal.
