Data Lifecycle Tool

Hi all,

 

I wanted to reach out to see what others are doing to capture the data lifecycle from beginning to end through systems.  Are there particular tools you are using aside from mapping with Visio/LucidChart?  There are numerous discovery tools, but I am searching for an automated way to map the flow of data through systems.  I would appreciate any thoughts anyone may have! - Kylie

Data Catalog applications that discover and ingest metadata as lineage are very good, because you can add attributes about the metadata so that this information it can be shared.

Two to consider are Collibra and Alation data catalogs.

May be, i am too late to reply. What i understand is you want to capture end to end lineage of your data assets i.e. the data supply chain. Most of the data cataloging tools have the capability to automatically harvest the data lineage when data is cataloged.

Example of such tools are: IBM Infosphere Information Governance Catalog; Talend Data Catalog; Collibra etc.
