What is Reversal Data Lineage?

How does a Reversal Data Lineage solution work?       What are the main components of the system?

Reversal Data Lineage on Technical metadata:

  • Provide accurate reports and metrics
  • Help to build a more consistent Business Glossary
  • Increase efficiency in regulatory reporting
  • Improve data analysis and decision making
  • Bring concreteness to any data governance initiative and expected results
  • Identify business rules discrepancies
  • Enable compliance with regulations such as SOX and HIPAA
  • Provide improved data and systems architectures
  • Improve change management and new system implementation by understanding potential impacts on data flows.

Reversal Data Lineage on Operational metadata:

  • Identify obsolete data and objects in the system to start application offloading initiatives
  • Increase efficiency in regulatory reporting with IT Physical processes historicization
  • Identify security breaches or exposure of sensitive data
  • A reversal Data Lineage representation often can show a “constellation” of objects almost impossible for the user to effectively understand.
  • Our Reversal Data Lineage  applies specific and automatic filters able to reduce the view to a simpler and more user-friendly representation (when needed). 

With a Reversal Data Lineage Solution any organization can recover and share the knowledge of its physical IT processes to support the Company’s data-driven strategy and digital transformation, ensuring trustworthy and reliable data.

Reversal Data Lineage is not only an IT solution. It should be at the heart of every organization looking to the future and trying to grasp every single opportunity. It is crucial to any organization that would like to: 

1) Ensure correct data to the whole organization for insights, AI, ML, Data Governance, Applications (ERP, BI, etc), Migrations, Improved efficiency, Data Quality, Big Data, Data Integration Projects, Data Protection, DevOps & Agile, Transformational change and many others;

2) Recover the Company’s knowledge of IT physical processes to better manage the metadata and obtain, through trustworthy data, the maximum business value.

People want to know the data’s origin or provenance—the earliest instance of the data (the word provenance in art has implications similar to lineage; it refers to a record of ownership that can be used as a guide for the authenticity or quality of a work). They also want to know how (and sometimes why) data changes have been applied during their lifecycle.

Understanding changes in data requires understanding the data chain, the rules that have been applied to data as they move along the data chain, and what effects the rules have had on the data. 

When the knowledge of these IT physical processes is lost, it causes frustration in carrying out digital transformation initiatives. Many companies do not know that today they have the possibility to recover this knowledge in a totally automatic and easy way and make it shareable within the whole Company.

A manual intervention to complete a Reversal Data Lineage and keep it aligned
can prove uneconomical in the short, medium/long terms, producing
unsustainable time and costs and no error-proof results.

A historicized process helps to answer any Audit question like: “what process
generated a  xxx  result in column  yyy at 5.34 pm on 3rd March 2019?”.
Our Reverse Data Lineage solution historicizes any “run” process, quite
differently from “versioning” tools!

A “usual” reversal Data Lineage representation can often show a “constellation”
of objects almost impossible for the user to effectively understand. Our Reversal Data Lineage applies specific and automatic filters able to reduce the view to a simpler and more user-friendly representation (when needed).
