Trusted by data teams worldwide.

Impact analysis has never been easier

Secoda automatically identifies the impacts of all changes and makes downstream and upstream owners aware of the change so they can proactively resolve it before a critical report is generated.

End-to-end lineage across your entire data stack

Secoda utilizes queries, foreign keys, primary keys, and additional attributes to comprehensively map lineage, which builds a complete understanding of the relationships among your resources and can help your team manage data stack sprawl.

Keep your lineage up to date with automated mapping

Secoda maps your entire lineage and lets you schedule recurring extractions to keep it up to date as things change. Set up your schedules, permissions, and additional settings in less than 5 minutes with Secoda's no code integrations.

Identify the impact of changes at the table, column, or report level

Receive notifications about updates to columns, documentation, and other resources that may affect your work.

Get full flexibility with drag-and-drop lineage nodes

Build a full picture of your data lineage graphs by adding additional relationships through an easy drag and drop, visual interface.

Send announcements to share insights into your data pipelines

Notify downstream and upstream users of resources about changes that may impact their work before they happen. Send announcements to Slack, email and to the Secoda inbox in seconds by identifying everyone who should know about the change you're making.

Enhance your lineage graphs using our API

Metadata such as dashboards, events, tables, charts, jobs, and relationships can be added to any tool using our API for admins and editors.

Visualize your data quality tests

Secoda brings in tests from data quality tools to monitor the performance of your data pipeline.

When tests fail, Secoda will notify all downstream users automatically about the failure. This way, you can focus on fixing the issue and don't have to lift a finger when something breaks.

FAQs

What is data lineage?

Data lineage is the process of tracking and recording the flow of data from its origin to its ultimate destination, including any changes and transformations that occur along the way. It provides visibility into the data's journey, enabling organizations to understand where the data comes from, how it is used, and how it is transformed over time. Data lineage is important for ensuring data accuracy, consistency, and quality, and it is commonly used for tracing errors back to their root cause and for compliance and auditing purposes

How can data lineage support data cataloging and data discovery efforts?

Data lineage plays a crucial role in supporting data cataloging and data discovery efforts. By providing a comprehensive view of the origin, transformations, and flow of data, data lineage helps in accurately documenting and cataloging data assets. It enables users to understand the relationships and dependencies between datasets, identify potential data quality issues, and assess the trustworthiness of data. Data lineage also facilitates impact analysis by allowing users to trace the effects of changes or updates to datasets, enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of data cataloging and data discovery processes.

What are the benefits of tracking data lineage?

Tracking data lineage offers several benefits for organizations and data management processes. Firstly, it enhances data trustworthiness and reliability by providing visibility into the origin and transformations of data, enabling users to understand and verify the data's accuracy and validity. Secondly, data lineage supports regulatory compliance and data governance efforts by enabling organizations to track and audit the lineage of sensitive or regulated data, ensuring data integrity and accountability. Additionally, data lineage facilitates data troubleshooting and root cause analysis, as it allows organizations to trace and identify issues or anomalies in the data flow. Moreover, data lineage aids in impact analysis, change management, and understanding the dependencies and impacts of data changes, supporting decision-making and reducing risks associated with data transformations. Overall, tracking data lineage improves data quality, transparency, and the efficiency of data management processes.
