It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s MANTA Flow 3.17 coming your way!
When we said (and we always say this) that we would expand the list of our supported technologies, we weren’t lying. MANTA 3.17 comes with support for IBM Netezza and IBM DB2, provides business data lineage, and much more!
The biggest news among big news is that MANTA now supports Netezza. As always, pioneers are wanted and needed (ask for your trial). It can do everything we taught it to, so if there is anyone out there who has a Netezza solution and wants to have the data lineage all nice and clean, we’ve got you covered.
This release is also the debut for a DB2 connector, now (almost) in stock. It’s no secret that we still have some plans for that one, so stay tuned. Because the Parser Team rocks, we worked on all of our parsers and we can proudly say that every new version of MANTA brings more and more improvements.
Did you know that complete business data lineage is now a thing? Yes, it is! And MANTA can provide that for you!
What we do is we can put together the physical metadata from the existing MANTA connectors with business terms provided by the user. From that, MANTA Flow can give you end-to-end business data lineage. We are the first ones who can provide you with data lineage that suits the needs of your business users as well as your BI team from information that your company already owns.
And as usual, that’s not it. We have added some cool features to MANTA, e.g. searching in source code, and much more.
