Manta XConnect

Manta XConnect

Posted by: Petr ¦típek

Manta XConnect 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 XConnect then provides the resulting metadata to Informatica Metadata Manager.


MANTA connects to IMM through XConnect (native API plugin), and enriches the metadata model of IMM with missing pieces of data lineage:

  • 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
  • NZPLSQL scripts, stored procedures, and more from IBM Netezza
  • DB2 scripts, stored procedures, and more from IBM DB2
  • SQL overrides for Informatica PowerCenter, Cognos and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
  • Postgre sql scripts, views and more from PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift and Greenplum

It fills in the gaps in data flows and allows our customers to get end-to-end data lineage (including indirect data flows).



Thanks to MANTA, Informatica’s customers can see complete end-to-end data lineage and achieve a full automation of their Enterprise Governance Catalogs, which is beneficial for the customer in many ways, namely:
