I have been working with a tech startup which is developing an new enterprise data platform which allows users to manage data independently of technology; my role in this project has been to design and implement the metadata architecture which forms the foundation of the system.
Working with a private bank to develop an enterprise level CRM architecture which supports users wishing to up-sell and cross-sell a wider range of products and services to new and existing customers.
The background to this project was the need to simplify, expand and automate the bank?s ability to carry out effective CRM campaigns, and this was achieved by creating an integrated business and technical data architecture based on shared metadata standards and protocols. The result was a ?seamless? platform which covers all aspects of CRM work from identifying data sources and potential prospects through to defining and monitoring campaigns, with all tasks and activities being defined in terms of the same metadata protocols, thus enabling a high degree of process automation and allowing users to collaborate much more easily on specific CRM initiatives.
Defining a comprehensive data strategy and data governance framework for the bank?s IT division.
I joined Barclays as the first ever chief data architect in a division that was run by technologists, most of whom believed that having to worry about data would just get in the way of the ?real work? of managing the bank?s IT infrastructure; in order to overcome this scepticism I had to devise a data strategy which would support BAU while at the same time laying the foundations for long-term digital transformation.
My solution to this challenge was based on the realisation that by creating parallel data architectures ? i.e. one reflecting data as defined by business users, another reflecting physical data sources ? it would be possible to gradually build an integrated data architecture without affecting BAU: GDPR for example could be documented and validated in business terms before it was put into practice incrementally, thus greatly simplifying what otherwise would have been a very complex task; and migrating legacy data sources to the cloud (specifically AWS) could be handled in the same, controlled way.
As well as designing and implementing this solution, I was also responsible for ensuring that all stakeholders understood how this new data architecture was intended to work, and how their data would ultimately be integrated into the overall logical and physical data architecture.
Define and implement a data and technical strategy for enterprise level real-time BI.
The background to this project was the need to provide UK police forces with a new BI platform which would provide
the ability to securely share data between police forces
the ability for police forces to customise their KPI?s as and when needed
support for mobile devices?
the ability to reflect and respond to changes in legislation
As the project?s solutions architect I was responsible for designing and implementing the first version of this platform and then organising a series of workshops and seminars to demonstrate how this new platform differed from the data warehouses which police forces had used in the past.
My work at DB involved creating a metadata driven hub for all market risk related data, both to meet BCBS 239 requirements and to provide asset management teams with more flexible market risk metrics. As the project?s data and solutions architect I was responsible for creating the logical and physical data models for all components of the new data hub, as well as implementing the system?s metadata layer.
This assignment involved migrating three legacy data warehouses into a new BI platform which could provide a 360 degree view of all credit and market risk data. As the project?s technical architect I was responsible for all data modelling and database design work as well as for defining the ETL roadmap which was used to migrate legacy data into the new BI architecture.
The goal of this project was to create an integrated data hub which allowed the FSA to analyse credit and market risk patterns in the trading of financial instruments on the London Stock Exchange. As the lead data and technical architect I was responsible for: (1) creating the logical and physical data models for all components of the project?s ODS and data warehouse; (2) analysing source data; (3) defining the data quality standards which underpinned the system?s ETL processes.
Matrix Data is an IT consultancy which specialises in data quality issues and I was engaged to work on a number of Oracle related projects for clients wishing to improve the quality and usability of their data.
This project involved refactoring an existing BI system in order to improve its performance and usability.
The goal of this project was to create a new database which could provide a single view of product data for all Warner Bros offices worldwide. Within the project I was responsible for creating the required ETL architecture and for defining the data transformations in business and technical terms.

"[...] The key deliverable for this part of the project was a single migration process which could deal with the various national formats and successfully match a high proportion of the local products to the CPM master records. This consultant designed and implemented this process within the scheduled time, and achieved successful product load rates of between 96% and 100%, which represented a far better success rate than we had expected and helped the introduction of the CPM system. [...] From the beginning of his time here this consultant has shown considerable enthusiasm for his work and we feel that he has made a significant contribution to this phase of the CPM project. He introduced a number of the ideas which were used in this project and he was always willing to share his knowledge and experience with his colleagues. This consultant is leaving this company following the successful completion of his assignment but we would be happy to offer him another position should the opportunity arise. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone contemplating his employment."— Project data analyst and ETL developer on CPM project, 07/04 - 07/05

"[...] Throughout the time that this consultant worked on this project, we were completely satisfied by the way in which he dealt with the various tasks entrusted to him: not only was his work always of a very high standard technically, but he consistently demonstrated high levels of initiative and motivation. He was able to grasp very quickly what work had to be done and could then be relied on to complete the resulting tasks effectively and within the agreed time frame. His knowledge of data warehousing in general and Oracle in particular allowed us to rely on him to define solutions and solve problems throughout the course of the project. In addition to his technical expertise, the consultant proved himself to be an effective team leader and co-ordinator. This was a multi-site project (the other sites being in Colorado and California) so it was important to ensure good communication between all the project teams, and the consultant was able to achieve this in all the areas for which he was responsible. The business users in particular expressed themselves very happy to be dealing with someone who noted their requirements and then provided solutions that did meet those requirements. All of us who were involved on this project found him a pleasure to work with. Although usually very busy, he could always be relied on to provide support to his colleagues.
It is partly as a result of the consultant's contribution that the first phase of this project was completed on schedule in June of this year. Unfortunately the project is now being moved to California and so this development team is being disbanded, but if a suitable opportunity were to present itself, we would have no hesitation in employing him again in the future."— Project technical architect/team leader on an financial data warehousing project, 06/03 - 06/04

"The consultant worked on attachment to my unit for nearly 12 months. He supported our legacy ORACLE Databases running on Compaq TRUE64 Unix servers. The databases were Horizon - a Property database and accouting system; HEAT a helpdesk job control system; PRISM a supplier management/purchase ordering system and SUN Accounts a general ledger/accounts payable system. The consultant supported the permanent DBA and took full control when he was away. He was always very pleasant and appeared to have in depth knowledge of ORACLE and how to tune databases. The consultant left on good terms and I would consider re-employing him in the future should the opportunity arise."— Project Property Systems Database Administration, nearly 12 months
