Information Architecture and Data Management continues to be a critical element to delivering on our business objectives and it's something that is required in order to support the reduction of costs, lowering risk, increasing performance and enabling the transparency of business performance and client satisfaction. There are a number of associated objectives required of our Information Architecture and Data Management function.

The Information Architect (IA), will work as part of the CB Information Architecture and Information Engineering federated team to achieve a number of strategic objectives to negotiate, agree and deliver artefacts such as the Business Entity Model, State Model, Controlled Vocabulary and Communication Contracts and govern their implementation and traceability from Logical and Physical schemas as part of a Model Engineering processes.

The Information Architect will be considered the Subject Matter Expert on Data and Information Architecture and Management working closely and collaboratively with business subject matter experts and project development teams, ensuring that the design is implementable and that delivery is consistent with the agreed design.

The Information Architect will also work with the JPMC firm-wide, Chief Data Office (CDO), CB and LOB core architecture teams on standards, tooling and production of standard on-going Information Architecture deliverables such as Data Lineage, Lifecycle Management, Quality Monitoring and Metadata Management.

Engaging with Business Operations, Product Management and Technology groups across the firm, the IA ensures that business requirements are translated into fit-for-purpose data requirements and that accurate traceability and lineage is both defined and documented. The IA will work with Business, Application and Technology Architects to review (and where necessary contribute to) business drivers, needs and strategies whilst assessing the implications and impact to the Data and Information Architecture. The IA will be considered a key trusted advisor on options, risks, and cost versus benefits and will communicate business data prioritization decisions to the relevant technology organizations.

The Information Architect will be able to engage confidently across all organizational levels management, evangelizing the benefits and importance of Information Architecture and Data Management. They will also be able to interchange between operating independently and in conjunction with other team members as required, whilst working on a number of assignments simultaneously.
