  • integrate data governance repositories with data management platforms to automate data governance processes (i.e., metadata capturing, lineage, and proactive data quality)
  • propose and enforce data management best practices, data standards, and data management policies and rules across different functional areas of an organization; and
  • document case studies and create solution templates that will accelerate future implementations.
