Citigroup Senior Business Analyst – BSG (VP) in Tampa, Florida
Citi wants to reduce risk, improve efficiencies, and minimize complexity of its human and technical operations. Whilst multiple strategies will be employed to achieve these goals, one cornerstone of the program will target the development of capabilities and operating models which enable both the expression of the ‘as is’ and the ‘to be’ processes, data and technology footprint of the bank.
As the business identifies significant change opportunities, this framework will be used to consistently express and track evolution toward the ultimate ‘to be’ footprint. The Data Transformation Program driven by the Enterprise Chief Data Office (ECDO), and Citi’s Enterprise Architecture Methodology (CEAM), driven by the Business Simplification Group (BSG), are key enablers in that effort.
Success in this regard necessitates the need for a common language around which the Firm can frame its enterprise architecture – both in the context of current and future state. That common language will be based on taxonomies which describe several dimensions of the Firm’s operations including Services, Business Process, Function, Data, Technology, Risk, and Controls.
Our ability to maintain and relate these taxonomies to help frame our transformation journey, lies at the center of both the ECDO and BSG agendas. We need to develop a set of strategic capabilities that address the federation, visualization and exploration of such relationships.
