  • Ensure data is generally moving in the direction of being more readily accessible and usable while adhering to the required governance and protection standards

Primary Goals to Be Assured by the Chief Data Officer

  • Company has a conceptualized and modeled view of what the ideal content is to support analytics within the vertical (across all units in that vertical)
  • Company has a data sourcing and data structuring plan to fully represent this conceptualized data model

Specific Responsibilities of the Chief Data Officer

Company has a conceptualized and modeled view of what the ideal content is to support analytics within the vertical (across all units in that vertical)

  • Develop and maintain a data model that contains the major entities and attributes which represent the ideal state of content and structure for the vertical.  The model should account for both data in its raw state (as it was received from the source) and any transformed/normalized views that would create efficiencies and provide value added transformed attributes
  • Update model as needed (but no less than every 12 months) to keep pace with the changing state of both data availability and the business
  • Review this ideal state with the business and ensure their understanding of why it represents the ideal state for us to be in

Company has a data sourcing and data structuring plan to fully represent this conceptualized data model

  • Develop and maintain a 12 month rolling plan to increasingly populate our data model so our conceptual model is fully realized over time
  • Identify new or existing raw sources of information to better populate our conceptual data model
  • Determine most effective means for ingesting data from its source and execute
  • Define the data engineering and manipulation (if any) required to make the data most usable.  Specifically, what data will be left in its raw state and for data to be transformed into a more normalized state what the transformation rules are
  • Provide the highest quality data to the user community by developing and adhering to a data validation process that identifies and corrects data issues at ingestion
  • Update CEO and CIO quarterly on progress towards full population of the data environment

Company is operating on a world class tech stack to manage all data and data types in every way

  • Publish and maintain a set of technical standards that will define the right tools and how they are to be deployed and used for purpose.  At the very least this should include:
  • Data storage and repository tools that account for both structured and unstructured persistent data storage i.e., RDMS and file system techniques
  • ETL tools required to manipulate data into new structures and formats
  • Data exploratory tools
  • Metadata and Master Data Management tools
  • Data quality and reporting tools
  • Develop a 12 month rolling plan to migrate data environments across Company to a more consistent state that adheres to these standards
  • Update CEO and CIO quarterly on progress and adjustments to plan

Company has a data engineering community that is right sized and appropriately skilled for the work needed

  • Maintain a current census of the data engineering community within the vertical
  • Develop a minimum set of standards for skills required by a Company data engineer
  • Continually assess the skill level and identify areas of concern/need and pursue proper path to address e.g., upskilling, transfer, retrain, new skills training, etc.
  • Create a rotation process for acceleration of in-flight projects and career advancement
  • Establish in partnership with the CHRO an ongoing program of recruitment for talent to be made available to business verticals as well as to populate the center’s analytic team

Company has available a set of data engineering resources, that 1) ensure methodological excellence across the enterprise, and 2) can offer resources to individual projects to ensure timely completion

  • Maintain a current census of all data engineering work within the vertical divided into on-going operational work and new development (new development being either incorporating new data assets or applying new methods to existing data assets)
  • On a quarterly basis update CEO and CIO on progress of new development and identify areas of opportunity in both on-going operational work and new development.  Make recommendation for how to achieve the opportunity
  • Build and maintain data engineering team at center to support verticals and provide overflow to BU’s when needed or accelerate high priority work
  • Determine and recommend budget for data engineering teams to CIO and CEO (both in the vertical and central team)

Company’s data capabilities and methods are world class and always improving

  • Develop a plan to properly protect and govern Company’s data assets
  • Identify specific areas of opportunity for improvement with regard to methods for data acquisition, data ingestion, ETL, data validation, and platforming for usability/accessibility within the vertical.  Develop plan and maintain plan for achieving improvements
  • Review progress and updates to plans on a quarterly basis with CEO, CIO

Commercialization opportunities for data assets or providing data management services and IP to our clients are pursued with vigor

  • Develop appropriate collateral to fully describe both our data assets and data management capabilities
  • Sales opportunities within the verticals are supported.  When appropriate, team is included in client conversations, client questions are addressed, proposals are developed and sent out in a timely fashion
  • RFP opportunities are assessed and responded to if deemed appropriate

Success Criteria

  • Business verticals respond favorably to the support from Chief Data Officer, the central team, and the vertical’s own data engineering teams
  • Demonstrable progress in defining new data content and advancing population of that content
  • Data technologies, methods, and skills are efficiently diffusing across Company
  • Data is in a more usable state and made more available
