From Australian Public Sector SFIA Forum:

Debate around informatics and data.  Generally all felt that the existing SFIA skills around data could encompass the needs of informatics but only for those very knowledgeable about the details in each data related skill.

The justification for suggesting additional data related skills is as follows:

  • There is a significant drive for large integration of data and interoperability of systems
  • IT is to a large extent the engine for ensuring that the data can be used and not the driver.
  • The importance of data in terms of what it is, its quality and integrity is often more important then the systems that manage it

As a comparison there are 20 service management skills but only about 5 data skills and the language focuses doesn't reflect the importance of data adn its use.

The following, at least, need to be considereed for review:

  • Data Governance 
  • Data Quality
  • Data Science
  • Data Management
  • Data Analysis
  • Analytics
