Talend Metadata Manager allows you to understand the context, the definition and the lineage of key data assets and optimize collaboration across their information assets.

Talend Metadata Manager supports full business level lineage and impact analysis down to the classifier (table/entity/dimension) and feature (column/attribute/measure) level.

Generally, there are two types of lineage:
  • Data flow based upon connection definitions to data stores and physical transformation rules which transform and move the data
  • Semantic, such as detailing the relationships from a conceptual to logical model, or a logical to physical model
