In this course, we will be addressing business and technical lineage.

We will cover different levels of automation, from fully manual to the fully automated documentation of data lineage. We’re going to touch on stitching, which is a technique to document data lineage between different systems. Stitching is applied when the data leaves one system and it is fed into another system or data store.
