Data lineage tools

Talend Data Catalog

Talend Data Catalog gives your organization a single, secure point of control for your data. Its data flow lineage feature allows you to narrow in on specific objects and shows you how these objects are related to each other, within a model, an external metadata repository, or a configuration. The data flow lineage is based upon connection definitions to data stores and physical transformation rules which transform and move the data.
