At the beginning of a data modeling course, I find it very useful to learn more about the participants. Most people begin by mentioning their job title followed by their job responsibilities. A title implies certain responsibilities. The data analyst captures requirements, the data modeler represents the requirements, the database administrator (DBA) and developer implement the requirements and so on. However, I have noticed a trend lately where the title "data architect" is often tied to similar responsibilities as those of the analyst and modeler.

Clarify the role of the data architect. In your organization, is the data architect responsible for both data analysis and data modeling activities, or is the data architect accountable for an entirely different set of responsibilities?
