Nilesh Acharya

Nilesh leads the Data Analytics function at Zimmer Biomet as Associate Director and is in process of implementing Continuous Risk Monitoring Framework for the Internal Audit department. This framework will identify and assess risk by examining trends, anomalies, exceptions, key performance indicators (KPIs) and key risk indicators (KRIs) on a regular basis and will provide early warnings. This framework will determine if risk is at a level where audit intervention is required, will select locations to be visited, will identify specific audits or entities to be included in annual audit plan, or will trigger an immediate audit of an entity where risk has increased significantly without an adequate explanation.

Nilesh has set up a data quality management program that defines, discovers and measures the quality and trustworthiness of data over time based on accuracy, timeliness, completeness, coverage, conformance and custom business rules.

Nilesh is experienced with process changes, system implementations and upgrades that are impacted by or have an impact on Master Data. This includes conducting impact, risk and gap assessments, business requirements gathering, data load/migration, data mapping/conversion, data validation, data cleansing, archiving and deletion rules, testing, post-implementation monitoring and troubleshooting. Nilesh has successfully implemented data governance processes at various organizations.
