Column-level data lineage

Dataedo from version 10.3 allows you to not only configure lineage on the object level but also to go deeper and define flows on a column level. You can set column-level flows by enabling column-level lineage and setting inflow and correspondent outflow columns.

Desktop lineage

Additionally, you can now browse diagrams from both the Web and Desktop.

Redesigned Data Classification

We redesigned Data Classification and improved performance or algorithms. You can now classify only a portion of the Data Catalog and configure classification to match your needs.
