Purpose of the Job
The innovative and effective deployment of data and analytics is key to the success of companies today. AkzoNobel is no exception as we seek to embed the improved understanding of data across the company.
Identifying and implementing opportunities to optimize the use of data within our R&D, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Marketing and Sales, Finance, HR and Sourcing Functions have been services delivered from our MDM Global over the last few years.
The demand for data support has recently increased from supporting processes / Functions like Real Estate, IM, Insurance, reporting & analytics and Legal & Integrity for instance.
This demands the skills of someone who can dedicate his full attention to the specific needs of these process / Functions.
Someone who can prepare compelling cases for investment in data improvements that will enable smooth operations and accurate data for reporting that leads to the timely generation of new business insights.
This is why the GBS Master Data Services require a new Global Data Architect (GDA) role for the Supporting Processes and Data Quality Monitoring, next to the existing four Global Data Architects dedicated to StP, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, MSSS, PtR and A2G.
This new GDA will allow growing the overall Data Management maturity in those Global Functions.
Key objectives include defining the data roadmap together with the GPO / GPDL / GPA of the supporting processes. This role will be acting as IM / IT touchpoint for master data matter including setting up the MDM landscape strategy and driving the demand pipeline for changes and projects support.
One of the key responsibility for this role will also be to drive the MDM reporting & analytics capabilities (demand / supply and portfolio management) for the Global MDM Dashboard, developed on an Alteryx / SQL / PowerBI platform.
