Manta Flow

Manta Flow

Posted by: Petr ¦típek

Manta Flow analyzes data lineage in complex environments for use in impact analysis, documentation etc. Manta Flow analyzes system metadata (parsing complex SQL scripts, ETL configuration or report definitions), extracts information on lineage and data flows, and reveals the entire path of data. Manta then visualizes the result on a table or column level (record or field level), with optional filtering and other advanced capabilities.


Try our MANTA Live. (

MANTA is the central hub of all data flows in the organization. Our scanners connect to various parts of your environment, automatically gather all metadata, and reconstruct complete lineage. You can then visualize the lineage in our native viewer app on the level of detail that meets your needs. MANTA is here to help with any task—you can search through all the lineage, focus only on selected parts, review previous versions, share your lineage views with others in the organization, and a lot more.

After the integration with MANTA, you can browse through IMM just like you’re used to, but MANTA fills in all the blanks your lineage used to have.

MANTA is able to analyze all code operating with data stored in the database dialects we support:

  • BTEQ scripts, stored procedures, views, and macros from Teradata
  • PL/SQL scripts, stored procedures, packages, and more, including DB links, from Oracle DB & Exadata
  • T-SQL scripts, stored procedures, and more, including linked servers, from Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase (now SAP ASE), and PDW
