The data stewards will manage the data that is generated within the product unit, and make sure that fit-for-purpose data is ready to be consumed by the entire bank. To achieve this, they work closely with business experts, product owners, data analysts, data scientists, and other data management teams across different data domains & the Central Data Office.

The Data Stewards report to a Data Product Owner. They and their Data Product Team will work closely together with all our data consumers to provide fit-for-purpose Data Products to the entire bank.

Within the same domains, there will be BI, Analytics and Advanced Analytics Centre of Expertise (CoEs). Collaborating closely with these CoEs, the data stewards will make sure that Data Products (integrated datasets) will be available and tailored to the needs of our data users. Data steward will be responsible for making sure that these products are clearly understood, and the metadata is continuingly monitored. The Data Products will be developed and made available for consumption through our own Domain Data Store, managed within the domains.

The vision of the department is to stimulate an environment where data is vital to everything we do and thus making sure that data is managed well within Transaction Banking.
