Data lineage is defined as the life cycle of data: its origin, movements, and impacts over time. It offers greater visibility and simplifies data analysis in case of errors.

With the emergence of Big Data and information systems becoming more complex, data lineage becomes an essential tool for data-driven enterprises. How can we represent the life cycle of data in an intelligible way, maintainable with a certain granularity in the information provided?

We are witnessing a paradigm shift in the representation and formalization of data mapping.
