Data Architecture is the bridge between strategy and execution (delivering data/information assets to the business). The data architect is expected to work with other architects and business subject matter experts to produce and manage business information models in all their forms, including conceptual models, logical abstractions, Entity-relationships/business ontologies, physical data designs, messaging models to efficiently move data across the data value chain (from ingestion to consumption and disposition).In this effort the data architect is instrumental in ensuring adherence to information principles, capabilities, tools and blueprints as defined by the reference architecture. Additionally, the functional data/information architecture office (governing body) is used as a lens and a filter to identify common patterns, establish reuse, prioritize and execute the data and analytic initiatives with clear line of sight to enterprise strategies and business outcomes.
