Enterprise Data Requirements Analyst

Dublin, Ireland | Permanent | Full time

Enterprise Data Requirements Analyst

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Full time

The Group Data Modelling Team sits within the Group Data and Analytics Office (GDAO) within GTCS. We have responsibility for capturing and understanding the semantics of the data used by the Bank and organising that into Data Models that are understandable by Bank personnel. This enables us to establish common semantics across the contents of multiple reports and regulatory returns.

Data Models are produced at both Business and Technical levels. In particular, the Team manages the Business Data Model (BDM - an extensive logical model of the Bank's data and its inter-relationships) and also logical and physical models for the strategic Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW).

Purpose of the Role

In order to build the models, it is vital that we accurately understand the data items used within the Bank. However, as in any large organisation, the same term may sometimes be used to refer to different items, and/or the same item may be referred to in different terms. The Enterprise Data Requirements Analyst works on the clarification of such as project data requirements, data specifications and source system content and ensures that they are expressed using agreed common semantics and unambiguous terminology.

Key Accountabilities

  • Working with the producers of Data Requirements to fully understand what they are asking for and helping them to document their Requirements completely and accurately
  • Semantic matching of the proposed Data Requirements against the existing BDM as an aid to establishing the business intent and enabling reuse of established common definitions
  • Responsible for validating semantic mappings made by other team members to ensure that they match the actual data requirement and align correctly across systems
  • Consolidation of any semantic issues encountered during the analysis/comparison into a workflow process and working with both business and technical partners, possibly across multiple departments and projects, to accurately resolve any such issues
  • Where BDM gaps are identified, produce modelling proposals for BDM extensions
  • Where relevant to the project, validation of mappings produced within the team of the encoding of data matching the Requirements into the Integrated Data Layer (IDL) of the EDW
  • The candidate will necessarily need to become familiar over time with the Bank's data, operations and processes

What is the opportunity?

  • This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and ambitious team and be a driving force delivering core results that run into data integration, data migration, unified reporting and regulatory requirement programs across the Bank
  • Training will be provided with respect to knowledge of the BDM, documentation of data mappings and data modelling
  • There will be opportunities to learn fundamental data management principals while undertaking the role, in particular Data Modelling
