Object Lineage allows you to answer the question “Where did this data come from?” A huge time-drain for all types of SQL developers and DBAs is tracing the source of data within a system. This component of DOC xPress enables users to explore how data in one part of their environment is used in other parts. For example, if you need to determine where a certain field on your SSRS report comes from, you can use Object Lineage to trace that field back to a database, see the SSIS package that populated the column, and even trace that back to the source database.
Object Lineage is both diagrammatic and interactive, allowing users to explore and drill down in their lineage model to view lineage details. This speeds up development by giving users the ability to view dependencies clearly and enables users to pinpoint the source of data in a report.
- Visually or in text mode view the flow of data in your ecosystem
- Drill down to the column or component-level
- Dramatically reduce the risk of change in your environment
