A graph solution like Linkurious Enterprise sits on top of a graph database. It gives business users the ability to visualize and analyze data lineage to find answers without the need for programming skills.
Within Linkurious Enterprise, you get access to full text search features to look for any property or data element in the database through a search bar.
Within the interactive graph visualization interface, you can explore the graph by expanding the relationships of your choice. It’s easy to drill down in the data and find answers. That’s the difference between having a theoretical capability of tracking data lineage and an analyst being able to quickly answer a question regarding the provenance of his data with confidence.
For example, if you want to understand what data is used for your sales report, you can simply look up the report via the search bar and add it as a node to your visualization. You can then explore its connections. In a few seconds you can find out that the origin of your report is the order_total metadata stored in the sales_db.
