About Donyati

So, what is Donyati? In short, we are a group of geeky entrepreneurs with a passion for what we do and are good at it. We are an organization comprised of former Big-4 consultants who were tired of feeling like commodities. We realized that while working for a “name brand” gave us a sense of legitimacy in the eyes of our clients, our ability to deliver world-class solutions and insights spoke for itself. We quickly found this hypothesis to prove true, and after a few short years we are already competing against the largest consulting firms in the world for high visibility projects – and we are winning.



We are looking for someone to assist the data governance team with:

  • Assist in Modeling and building Data Lineage.
  • Locate reference data, identify uses and key users.
  • Get agreement on who owns and definitions.
  • Assure governance requirements are met completely for each reference data set.
  • Complete project tasks identify data owners and drive agreements on definitions & use.
  • Advocate for and follow governance framework.


Project Background

A global 1,000+ employee property & casualty insurance company is looking to Donyati to help them in consolidating their data & applications into a modern architecture.  Donyati is looking to hire a consultant that is not afraid to get their hands dirty and do some very tedious data analysis, modeling and governance work.  With 30+ Systems, one 40+ year old COBOL system for example, this is quite a unique challenge.  We are looking for someone to assist the data team in building the Data Model/Data lineage and work with the Data Owner in building the Data Dictionary/Data Catalog.  The challenges are found more in building the Data lineage and Data Models. Due to the unique environments few Data Modeling or Data Lineage tools work off the bat.  We are missing data dictionaries, few of the tables have foreign keys, few primary keys defined, most ETL is done using views, and much is in a black box we may not have access to. I think you are getting the picture.
