    Viswanath, you sound vague with what you are asking. I think you have some other idea of what a Data Architect is and what you are doing now is almost exclusive to the the other. A data architect is an intermediary between end-users and the database group. This doesn't mean that you have to be a DBA in order to do this. Having been an Oracle Apps DBA for over 7 years doing several implementations, doing data architect and analysis work was a complete spin in another direction. In order to do this, you have to understand what data and how the data relates to current workflow and processes and ultimately the value of data and how it affects the bottom line. In order to do this, you need to throw yourself into the business processes and manipulate and massage data different ways through reports and validation until you get it. The tools and technologies that you posess only aid in getting the data and will not contribute to your understanding of business data and its value across organizations in your company. You will need to hone up on your interpersonal and communication skills across organizations in your company. As a data architect can sometimes be a facilitator for process re-engineering as well. You need to speak the accounting managers talk from an A/P and A/R side as well as the Inventory analyst or the Budget Financials analyst or the Supply Chain/Production planner's speak as well. You could also serve to facilitate the future uses of data (data mining, data warehousing, Business Intelligence (cubes) etc. All these still require that you understand business processes from end to end and how the data flows as information from one end to the other. Hope this helps in your direction.
