Data Lineage Solutions

In-depth knowledge of data, its lineage and how it is used, is crucial to all organizations. Apart from a regulatory imperative to understand the data flows within your organization, data lineage is fundamental to getting the right data to the right people, at the right time – the basis of sound decision making, risk management and new data driven initiatives.

What is data lineage and why is so important?

Data lineage frequently asked questions

Data lineage is the ability to trace the origins and movement of data from its source to destination across technical and organizational systems. It provides visibility into data flows to understand upstream sources and downstream impacts. 

Data lineage delivers vital visibility into data origins and flows, enabling governance, compliance, risk reduction, productivity gains, and collaboration across the data ecosystem. 

A huge amount but examples include:

  • How has this data changed over time?
  • Who has accessed this data?
  • Is there an issue upstream?
  • Is this data consistent across systems?
  • Does our data meet compliance rules?
  • Document critical data flows and touchpoints.
  • Standardize data types, schemas, and rules across systems.
  • Log key data transformation steps.
  • Integrate lineage into data governance processes.
  • Monitor data lineage continuously.
  • Collaborate across teams. Data stewards, IT, compliance, and business units must align.

A huge amount but examples include: 

  • Compliance – Demonstrate adherence to data regulations and governance policies by documenting flows. Critical for sectors like financial services and healthcare. 
  • Data governance – Improve trust in data by providing transparency into origins and processing. Enables proactive data quality management. 
  • Migration – Streamline transition by mapping legacy systems to new databases and assets.  
  • Analytics – Understand data context and meaning by tracing roots. Leads to reliable insights and actions from BI tools. 
  • Incident response – Rapidly diagnose causes of issues by tracing upstream flows. Accelerate restoration and remediation. 

The main types of data lineage include:

  • Technical Lineage – Follows the data journey through technical systems like databases, ETL tools, and APIs. Provides complete view of how data is structured, transformed, and processed.
  • Business Lineage – Traces data origins and flows through business operations, policies, and user activities. Documents the business context surrounding data.
  • End-to-End Lineage – Combines forward and backward tracking to give complete view across the data ecosystem.
