Mission Context
The Data Platform Industrialization Program

At the heart of the customer’s digital strategy, the Datalake Group continues to evolve to support the development of Digital Solutions and the customer’s BU Data needs.
An audit of the Datalake Group was carried out in spring 2020 in order to determine the best possible roadmap for the Datalake. This audit identified an action plan that is being implemented.
This action plan led to the constitution of a Program, initiated in August 2020, with 5 related projects:

1 – FUNCTIONAL OBJECTS REVIEW, Analysis of existing business objects, recommendations and implementation of improvements
2 – IMPROVEMENT STRUCTURE (Includes documentation, CI / CD, renaming, standardization)
3 – DATADESK AS A SERVICE DESCRIPTION – Definition and architecture of a Datadesk
4 – DATADESK SUPPORT FUNCTION, Includes the change of governance, the transfer of knowledge and improvement of the architecture
5 – MONITORING & DATAHUB ENHANCEMENT – Includes the design and implementation of monitoring functions, and the design, rewriting and implementation of the datahub

The first Implementation Phase of the Program focused on Projects 2, 4 and 5. This Phase ends in April 2021.

The Functional Object Review project
Among the recommendations of the audit, it was recommended to strengthen the organization of data in the datalake in the form of Business Objects.
These Business Objects are used to:

Read and access data more easily for use
Facilitate maintenance
Overcome the complexities of source applications
Define a common interface language

An effort has been made to formalize business objects. It is now a question of putting them in place at the service of uses
The 2021 goal is to create at least 15 business objects. These 15 business objects should be used in use cases 1. Their implementation will therefore require adaptations to be as close as possible to uses.
One of the challenges of the second implementation phase (April to August 2021) is the implementation of these business objects.
We are looking for an experienced Team Leader to manage the project concerning the implementation of Business Objects.
