  • Using customer data to understand where customers are struggling to use their subscriptions, finding the cause of that struggle and detailing that in actionable requirements for our delivery teams
  • Getting ahead of new regulation
  • Working closely with our legal and business affairs team to understand potential future changes in regulation which may affect our business and planning to mitigate those
