About Manta

MANTA is a data lineage visualization solution which extracts and analyzes metadata from report definitions, custom SQL code, and ETL workflows, to create data flows which span multiple systems and a range of technologies. Lineages are analyzed based on actual code, and both direct and indirect flows can be visualized. Data paths between files, report fields, database tables, and individual columns are revealed to users, and this information can be utilized in a range of roles.

All entities detected by MANTA, such as columns or procedures, are presented to users in a structure designed to simplify navigation. Users can search for any object in the repository, or within the visualization itself. Clicking on specific objects within the data flow highlights paths, and users can apply filters and manually unfilter individual connections. The visualization can also be rearranged to focus on a different object with a single click.

Key benefits of Manta

  • MANTA analyzes metadata from SQL scripts, ETL configuration, report definitions, and more, to create data flows that span multiple systems and technologies.

  • Results are visualized on a table or column level, with advanced capabilities including optional filtering.

  • Data lineages can be traced in detail, with information on what data fills each field, how data is transformed, and which data affects the path.

  • Manta Flow can be used for impact analysis before any changes are made, such as adding or removing database columns, by giving users insight into where and how changes propagate.

  • Information provided by Manta Flow on system complexity and subsystem relationships can be used for risk mitigation and cost control by data migration leads.

    Best Lineage and Harvesting tool

    Reviewed on 2020-10-08

    Customer support was excellent and got great support all the times.

    Customer support was excellent and got great support all the times.

    Pros

    1. It has a great potential to integrate with different kinds of databases like Oracle, MS SQL etc., and load various metadata objects with a bit of configuration with less turnaround time. And few features like showing expressions etc has impressed our user. On top of it, Manta has provided a world class feature to integrate with downstream systems like Collibra etc., to push assets/data.

    Cons

    Manta was awesome tool and didn't find drawbacks.

    Manta is really good but we expect more

    Reviewed on 2020-10-09

    Pros

    1. The depth and visualization of lineage is really great.
    2. Ability to create custom models
    3. Large number of Native Scanners
    4. Picking up more detailed metadata information.

    Cons

    1. Many resources need to be improved and enhanced, like Java, Tableau, OBIEE
    2. Manta follows column-column, table-table, schema-schema linking. It would help if there is an option to link resources at any level. We use custom models a lot, so this feature would help us in connect native and custom objects at any level.
