    • Recommend use and working product models for  registries and catalogs to support Micro-service, event driven architecture and big data, including aggregation and visualization.
    • Drive cultural change and get capture and use “to scale”
    • Document a clear position on integration with the CCB Metadata Repository and Technology Data Management tooling, as required
  • Research and select champion tools and open source to meet Registry and Catalog (index) metadata for data stores and modern, highly distributed data ecosystems, including data lakes with both batch and real-time integration architectures.  
    • Ensure metadata is designed-in, automated and traceable from the start
    • Ensure metadata can be located and is usable – by humans and machines
    • Ensure metadata can be leveraged to support data quality
  • Establish data flow metadata standards and drive adoption of those standards across CCB so there is a Live Data Map of understood dependencies.
  • Work directly with the Chief Development Office, to integrate metadata capture at design and run-time (CI/CD) to automate evergreen metadata. 
  • Define the pattern for contribution and enrichment of metadata, especially in the big data space which will rely on structured and crowd sourced models.
  • Gather, research and iterate principles tags and semantics to support consistency in describing ‘data and event assets’ to continuously improve operational and analytical consumption and insights
  • Collaborate on the Event Streaming as a Service with focus on standards and automation around event structure and schema metadata, event naming, registry, topic to event ‘grain’, guidance and governance
  • Collaborate on event change data capture and reconciliation patterns for Core Account Processing platforms
  • Establish best practices for data integration and consumption APIs (Data as a Service) for on premise and off premise analytics
  • Roll up sleeves and develop as needed and embrace continuous improvement/machine learning mindset of metadata as a service
  • Aggressively identify opportunities to leverage AWS and to drive those opportunities
  • Over 12 years of experience in data management and engineering
