"We have used Engrafo as a software tool in qualifying for a tender for metadata documentation at a big data driven public customer in Denmark. We won the tender with the documentation capability's in Engrafo that matched the requirements. We installed and configurated Engrafo in a couple of hours and have then used the metadata loaders to automatically to gather information about data to populate the data catalogue very quickly and efficiently. After that, we used the metadata loader to import metadata about the usage of the data in different systems creating data lineage, flow documentation, edit history and more - from source tables to data marts. Our customer now has a system that easily let the different users search for data descriptions, data flows, data lineage, SQL expressions and more."
