Data Lineage Graphs
Architector is designed to draw meaningful and insightful diagrams from lineage metadata. There are several pre-designed views available, including:
- Data flows between applications (‘systems’)
- Data flows between data-stores (‘interfaces’)
- Data flows between processes
The user can specify start and end points for the diagram, and can select to include more or less detail on the diagram, including showing: data elements, issues, controls, organisation units, and parent processes.
It is possible to filter everything out except metadata that is relevant to a particular data element, providing real support to root-cause-analysis and impact analysis.
As well as the pre-designed views, users can design their own views and queries using a graph query language.
Here are some examples of lineage diagrams from Architector:
