When customers seek efficient, connected data visibility and relationship management to fuel growth, even post-acquisition, they can benefit by partnering the data lineage and governance experts at Solidatus.

In a new case study, Solidatus explains how it helped a global retailer automate its data lineage and visualisation capabilities after making a major acquisition in the e-commerce arena -- enabling the company to develop an increasingly integrated data ecosystem that positions them for further expansion.

The company was experiencing significant expansion of its sales and inventory requirements as a result of the acquisition, according to Solidatus.

"Gaining a complete picture of their end-to-end data ecosystem proved challenging when integrating new and existing data sources and systems. The Solidatus lineage and visualization capabilities provided a holistic solution to manage their data landscape and scale for further growth," the company explains.

Highly efficient, fully connected data solutions can deliver increased visibility into the more complex data relationships that customers experience today. When sources of data are unclear, it can be difficult to aggregate the information required to enhance business functions.

"Searchability and transparency across systems was incomplete, creating gaps in analysis and reporting," according to Solidatus.

Solidatus technology is lineage-first, which means it can enable full automation of data lineage discovery, visualisation, storage, versioning and retrieval.

What does this mean for the customer?

The global retailer in question now enjoys improved production data across all systems while supporting and connecting key business domains. At the same time, Solidatus' solution enabled data-mart construction and an analytics layer powered interface.

Users can not only expose descriptors about the inputs and outputs of each job and posts to a secure, industry-standard RESTful HTTP API in the cloud but compare, maintain and version these data flows -- allowing users to query and visualise data end-to-end.

The Solidatus system can also be integrated into an existing governance ecosystem, incorporating importation of current metadata. With a visual, searchable and transparent view of all input and output pipelines from the data platform, with the ability to break down siloes and trace data back to source, companies can assess change impacts on upstream systems.
