data.world Adds Automated Technical Lineage Functionality for Deeper Understanding of Data
AUSTIN, Texas, June 25, 2020 – data.world, the cloud-native enterprise data catalog company, released new data lineage capabilities that deliver a fully automated and comprehensive view of data relationships and how it flows through an organization. Powered through a partnership with MANTA, users can more easily analyze and understand how data and information connect – including business and technical lineage of tables, columns, views, queries, transforms, additions, edits, and more. This granularity provides transparency and confidence in an organization’s data flow and consumption, ultimately improving impact and root-cause analysis, troubleshooting, and forecasting efforts.
“People need to understand and trust the data powering their reporting and analytics. But assigning context to it, validating the origin and stewardship of data and analysis, and collaborating with other data users is challenging,” said Jon Loyens, co-founder and Chief Product Officer at data.world. “Adding technical lineage capabilities to our catalog allows users to get incredibly granular detail about data relationships, so they can feel more confident about how, when, and where they should be applying the data.”
The enhanced automated lineage capabilities allow users to quickly gather metadata and draw a complete map of all data dependencies, providing them with critical knowledge about the complete journey of their data assets and their connections. These patterns help data users assign context to their data and make sure that it’s used as intended.
“We believe this partnership will improve customer confidence in their data by providing in-depth visibility into all their data flows and connections,” said Tomas Kratky, CEO of MANTA. “Automation, accuracy, and semantics from data quality through analytics to applied machine learning, let a variety of users fully comprehend and trust the data they are working with, boosting their productivity.”
