Continuing our OS Developer content and adding to our series of blogs introducing the people that make up OS, our Associate Data Management Specialist Alina Piotrowska shares a day in the life of a data steward…
When did you start at OS?
I joined OS back in May 2019 as an Associate Data Management Specialist in the Data Management and Requirements team. A large part of my role is to care for our data and to make sure it is meeting customer requirements.
One of our data principles states that OS data ‘is cared for’. This means we treat our data as though it is our own; protecting and nurturing it. We recognise it as a valuable asset, look after it and ensure it gets the time, resources and prioritisation it needs. We do this to ensure that it delivers our outcomes.
As the Head of Data and Analytical Services at OS, here Lisa Allen offers us an insight into our data principles…
Ordnance Survey is the national mapping agency for Great Britain, and we hold some of the country’s most valued geospatial data. Our data is woven into the very fabric of everyday life, right across Britain.
However, it’s not just geospatial data that’s important to us. As a data business, our corporate data is equally important.
We need to ensure that our customers can trust, find and use our data. We want to enable you to connect data through the language of location for greater insights, better decisions and smarter outcomes.
