Data lineage has become a daily demand. However, it remains an abstract, unknown concept for many stakeholders. The implementation is complex and resource-consuming.  Usage of data lineage remains a challenge in “business as usual” operations.

During this 2-day Masterclass, we discuss and elaborate on the practical aspects of building a successful data lineage business case. We focus on delivering artifacts and documents that later can be used by participants in their real practices.

During the Masterclass, the participants will become familiar with:

  • The concept of data lineage

  • Data lineage stakeholder analysis

  • Key methods of data lineage documentation
  • Key areas and challenges of data lineage usage
  • The 9-step method to design and implement data lineage
