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 from Informatica PowerCenter, Cognos and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
It fills in the gaps in data flows and allows our customers to get end-to-end data lineage (including indirect data flows).
