Data Lineage with Apache Airflow

Willy Lulciuc, Founding Engineer | Datakin

With Airflow now ubiquitous for DAG orchestration, organizations increasingly depend on Airflow to manage complex inter-DAG dependencies and provide up-to-date runtime visibility into DAG execution. But what effects (if any) would upstream DAGs have on downstream DAGs if dataset consumption was delayed?

In this talk, we introduce Marquez: an open source metadata service for the collection, aggregation, and visualization of a data ecosystem’s metadata. We will demonstrate how metadata management with Marquez helps maintain inter-DAG dependencies, catalog historical runs of DAGs, and minimize data quality issues.
