Does data lineage require a data dictionary or glossary?

No, data lineage does not require a data dictionary or glossary and can be independent of these.

A data dictionary or glossary is merely a list of objects with no relation to each other, limiting the use and the value it can provide. Whereas data lineage provides details about dependencies in an automated fashion—where the data set comes from and where it is used.

This information enables you to use it for DataOps, incident management, migrations, and more, making data lineage the place to start—no data dictionary or glossary required.
