Data Flows

How can data lineage help with auditing data standards?

Data lineage provides visibility into the flow of data throughout enterprise systems and ensures a documented data flow trail throughout the data lifecycle. Data lineage is helpful for setting and adhering to auditing standards, as it helps serve multiple purposes, including ensuring compliance with regulatory reporting, identifying data security breaches, and maintaining compliance with government and industry regulations.

How does data provenance compare to data lineage?

Data lineage goes beyond this historical record of data to look at the how and possible impacts of data movements and dependencies. Data lineage provides a full overview of how your data flows throughout the systems of your environment via a detailed map of all direct and indirect dependencies between data entities within the environment. This gives you a greater understanding of the source, structure, and evolution of your data.

Is data lineage part of data governance?

Data governance, at its core, is establishing trust in data - the quality and sources of data, the integrity and the use of data, and the security of data during the lifecycle of data within the enterprise. Data lineage plays an important role in your data governance framework and overall data management strategy by providing visibility into how data flows throughout your environment as well as transparency in the sourcing, structure, and evolution of your data.

How can data lineage improve data quality?

When you have a complete overview of all your data flows, sources, transformations, and dependencies, you have control of your data assets. You can speak to the accuracy and quality of your data and have confidence in your data information and reports. By giving you a full overview of how your data moves across systems, where it originated, how it transforms along the way, and how it’s interconnected, data lineage can help you to ensure the quality of your data, reinforce your overall data management strategy, and increase trust in your data.

Does MANTA do dependency analysis?

An invaluable tool for analyzing data dependency is the lineage graph generated by MANTA. You are able to see exactly how each attribute is related to another, how a particular transformation impacts them, or how a particular transformation has affected the data. Knowing the answers to such questions will give you more power and control over dependencies and will enable you to deploy more automated techniques.
