Method360: Data Lineage and Data Impact Leveraging Information Steward's Metadata Manager
 
31:25
No matter the size of organization you're working in, people relying on the values presented in reports increasingly want to know how did those values come to be. A primary goal of any information governance mission is to make derivations of information transparent to the user of that information. This goal has often gone unmet because tools to facilitate that mission were not available and or were too difficult to maintain. Attend this presentation to see how Metadata Manager, within Information Steward, can enable transparency, clarity and ultimately trust in those values. Join Method360's Information Management Practice Lead, James Hanck, to be guided through the process of capturing, exposing and maintaining lineage. We will highlight where SAP has made the process easy and where there is still a little bit of heavy lifting to be done. This presentation will guide you through the configuration and usage of Metadata Manager and to what level information is displayed through various ETL tools, SAP Business Warehouse, Business Objects semantic layers and reports. It will also show options for exposing this information to the user community.
