What's New in February 2023

We are thrilled to announce a new column-level lineage feature in this month's product update! In addition, we have made several product improvements, including better management of our self-serve crawlers. Lastly, Microsoft Teams users can integrate Metaphor into the collaboration tool to improve data workflows. Read about our exciting updates below.

Column-Level Lineage

Metaphor's Column-Level Lineage

Users can view detailed end-to-end column-level lineage within the Lineage graph.

 Metaphor analyzes query logs from Data Warehouses and any internal API’s from dashboards to build out the lineage. Snowflake, Databricks and Thoughtspot are currently supported. Support for other platforms are expected in the next few weeks.
