Lineage is a critical capability, it's complex and expensive so it's really important to know what can go wrong and how to avoid pitfalls to deliver maximum value to the business. Today I am joined by Irina Steenbeek an absolute expert on this topic.

Irina has a lot of experience managing ERP implementations, she is the founder of Data Crossroads and her background spans civil engineering, management, consultancy, and finance. Irina authored more than 60 blog posts in data management and published four books: The Orange Model of Data Management, The Data Management Toolkit, The Data Management Cookbook, and her latest book, Data Lineage from a Business Perspective, which we will talk about today.

This episode is here to give you a solid understanding of what data lineage is and what it isn't, the value, costs, and benefits for your organization, some execution tips and ideas to talk about it with your business stakeholders.


Crash course: How to build a successful data lineage business case?
