Reporting to the Data Analyst, the Database & Data Integrity Manager is a key member of the Technology department that ensures data integrity and proper use of all patron and donor databases at the museum.  These databases contain tens of thousands of records and support the success of the several departments, primarily Visitor Services and Development. This is a critical role that ensures continuity of the museum’s business and enforces best-practices with respect to data records management. Maintaining reliable, accurate, and consistent data is also crucial to efforts by the Data Analyst to perform analysis, forecasting, and reporting to help the museum make informed business decisions.

The Database & Data Integrity Manager is primarily responsible for the integrity of patron data records and the oversight of point-of-sale and patron database systems. These systems contain sales and donor records, financial reports and queries, and donor and member communications. His/her position makes sure those systems are configured optimally and that staff are trained to use them properly and enter all data correctly, according to documented standards and procedures.  Records not conforming to standards (e.g., missing information, incorrect formats, misspellings, etc.) need to be cleaned and corrected on an on-going basis to ensure data integrity.

The primary system and database of use, where he/she works extensively, is Altru by Blackbaud, a company-wide, browser-based system used by dozens of staff for everything from ticket sales to donor prospecting.

He/she also stays involved in the online Altru community discussion board to contribute to the body of knowledge regarding Altru’s best-practices (e.g., providing questions and answers).

He/she creates, maintains, and distributes written Altru and patron database policies and procedures based on museum and industry best practices and compliance demands. Working with other staff, he/she helps create, update, and deliver queries, metrics, reports, visuals, and other reporting tools.

The Database & Data Integrity Manager is accountable as the lead expert for answering questions about the museum’s database systems and importing and exporting data for reporting purposes. He/she needs to stay current on vendor-installed updates and upgrades and inform and train staff as needed when new features are released. He/she also needs to know how the museum’s other POS and CRM systems are used and provide support and training as needed. He/she is personally responsible for the monitoring and maintenance of data integrity and conducts regular audits to report errors or inconsistencies and leads clean up efforts.
