The Benefits of Automating Data Lineage in the Initial Phases of a Data Governance Initiative

Data lineage has always been a key data governance deliverable but until recently most people were waiting to capture data lineage until a later stage of their data governance initiative and often only if there was a regulatory requirement to do so.

This is now changing and more organisations understand the value of automating data lineage in the initial phases of their initiative. It’s not surprising. If you don’t have data lineage your organisation will be wasting a lot of time and effort trying to find data, because there is no documentation of where data is and how it flows through your organisation.
