Alation Data Lineage
See the Full Story of Data
Answer complex questions by investigating the lifecycle of data with an easy-to-understand view of lineage enriched with metadata.
Empower data stewards to fill in the gaps of automated lineage by seamlessly editing the lineage graph. Customize lineage by adding cataloged data assets or external assets, and reflect the full and accurate picture of your specific use case.
Capture data flow
Provide context of how and why data changed from one step to the next by showing and documenting data flow changes such as ETL/ELT transformations.
Perform impact analysis
See and resolve pipeline issues in real-time. See the impact of deprecated data directly in the lineage graph. Use filters to visualize downstream and upstream impacts on data products.
The lineage feature in Alation is really important to us. It provides a graphical representation of all the lineage between the data and the report results.
