An instant demo of data lineage is worth a thousand words Written by Ross Turk on August 10, 2021

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.

If you’ve ever tried to describe how all the jobs in your data pipeline are interrelated using just words, I am sure it wasn’t easy. I bet you used way more than a thousand of them. But you probably never got past a hundred words before looking for something to draw with – it’s far easier to explain data lineage on a whiteboard in two-dimensional space.

The same is true for Datakin. We can describe how it shows your complicated data pipeline as a clear and navigable graph, or how you can identify performance issues across an entire run-cycle with a single glance…but it would take a lot of words. It’s probably better if you just see it for yourself. That’s why we have made an instant demo of Datakin available at

When you click that link, you will see Datakin immediately – no signup forms, no waiting for someone to approve. On your first visit, you’ll be shown a quick tour that explains the basic concepts. After that, you can explore a collection of metadata from a fictional data pipeline.

If you have feedback, we’d love to hear it! Use the icon in the lower-right corner of the demo to get in touch with us. If you’d like to see Datakin with your own data, sign up today.
