Like CIMM, Three Lines of Defense, or Information Lifecycle
Corporations are committing to initiatives to control and leverage their information. CIMM (Capability Information Maturity Model) for IT, Three Lines of Defense for Auditors, and Information Lifecycle projects make significant progress with process and information lineage maps. CIMM tenets:
The Three Lines of Defense is a framework originating from internal auditors to fix responsibility and management of corporate risk (particularly regulatory) within an organization.
All corporate governance projects have significant needs for information, hierarchy, and logical system lineage analysis at the business, structural, and data level. Many IT experts have limited experience with lineage because lineage tools in the past were difficult and expensive to implement.
Lineage has the potential to break open software “black boxes” through automated scanning of multiple vendor and internally-authored scripts and databases. Its visual lineage supports both subject matter experts and non-expert business users to understand data lineage and the impact of proposed changes across the hardware and software ecosystem. As one manager said, “It’s better to know before you go rather than have your users tell you about a serious impact.“
