- Define integrative and canonical views of data or information across multiple content types (structured, semistructured, XML or unstructured) to support convergence of information asset migration planning or impact analysis.
- Follow technical standards and guidelines that pertain to data and information use, security, access and governance (including defining accountabilities in support of data quality mandates).
- Ensure existing data/information assets are identified, stewarded and leveraged across the enterprise. Develop a model management strategy in support of enterprise reuse and data-sharing objectives.
- Validate audit objectives and assist with creation of audit plans to ensure continued data integrity and transparency.

- Ensure timely and appropriate information models exist to aid projects.
