  • Communication – Communicate progress against commitments to the stakeholders and Project Managers
  • Maintain the data dictionary to support self-service data reporting by internal users
  • Ensure all data feed and integration documentation is complete 
  • Capture non-functional requirements from stakeholders in relation to integration, performance, resilience and operational support of the data
  • Mentoring and supporting others on data quality and assurance
