Hi,

We are currently working on implementing the data lineage within our data warehouse and I don't seem to find a book that really covers this subject. I have checked the 2012 certification PDF and few other books with no success.
I know that there are tools that are used for implementing the lineage and audit data, but we would like to create a db to contain the metadata(mainly for completeness and accuracy). Is there any book that covers this subject in detail?

Thanks a lot!

I have also looked and not been able to find anything. And although in general I'm a big fan of Ralph Kimball's books, I find it disappointing that he talks about the importance of lineage without making any practical suggestions to go about doing that.

Some ETL tools such as Informatica have data lineage built in. To my knowledge, SSIS does not. You'll have to either build on SSIS's auditing features or maybe find a third-party add on.

Hi,

Thank you for the replies. Our workflows are made in informatica, but for the lineage info they ask for extra money, so we need to do it ourselves :-).
We will eventually do it step by step and improve it as we go along.
Basically we created a metadata db that will be populated from the informatica workflows.
If I find anything useful, I will post it here, but I'm not very optimist:-).
