Ideally, we are looking for a resource with several years of BA experience. Prefer candidates with experience including asset manager data sets such as investments (security master, positions, prices, performance, index, analytics), client, and product. Any experience with data governance and data dictionary tools like Collibra, IBM Business Glossary, or Data360 would be helpful.
OFI is trying to collect a large amount of metadata for our critical data elements. The process today involves the data team compiling the initial basic metadata information, maybe 30% of the fields. The second step is completed by the business subject matter experts or stewards. This person captures roughly another 30% of the metadata that is more detailed such as business rules or best practices. The final steps involve the collection of the remaining 30%, the lineage metadata. This final step is best performed by technical owners from both the source systems and the output systems.
This business analyst role is aimed at speeding up the process by partnering with each of these three groups. To help move this process forward faster OFI needs a strong business analyst that has experience in either the client, product, or investment domains that could supplement the work already performed by these three teams.
