By tracking and utilizing data lineage within the analytics process, organizations are able to shorten decision-making cycles, enhance data loss prevention and enable more efficient and cost-effective compliance and auditing.
Data increasingly is becoming a critical component of just about every aspect of your business. Understanding where the data came from, how it was used, how it was modified and where it goes, are all equally important. Data lineage represents your data’s lifecycle, including the origin of the data and where it moves over time. Data lineage also lets you know what happens to the data as it is used in any number of business processes. Data lineage provides visibility into those processes while greatly simplifying the ability to trace errors back to the root cause. Data lineage is a critical part of your business intelligence solution.
“Data lineage is a core element in emerging data intelligence solutions, bringing more insight about the data itself and delivering even more impact and value for data-driven organizations,” –Stewart Bond, Director, Data Integration Software, IDC
