Data Governance

Ab Initio EME Compliance and Automated End-to-End Data Lineage


A major credit card issuer, acquirer and network service provider company had a requirement to document data lineage for regulatory and financial reporting.

Client Challenges and Requirements

  • Client had an objective to set up end to end data lineage across platforms
  • The client had a 15 year old EME which had approximately 20K applications
  • Majority of the applications were not EME compliant (i.e. were not meeting the pre-requisites of automated data lineage)
  • Lineage documentation was manual

Bitwise Solution


Developed a utility which identified the active non-complaint applications to resolve EME error.


Prioritized cleanup for compliance considering audit requirements.


Being an Ab Initio tool, MDH was selected as the right candidate and applied for lineage automation considering its capabilities to integrate with EME and gather data flow.


Custom reports were built within MDH to extract lineage in source to target format for reporting.
