This month we went all out. We sat down and worked hard to bring you MANTA 3.18 as soon as possible, because it wouldn’t have been fair of us to have kept these amazing features to ourselves. Come and join the ride!
Growing Integration Capital
Up until now MANTA has had a standard API, but from now on we will have a public REST API, which gives users many more options. Through the public API you can connect MANTA to any app and let it run impact analyses to get data lineage information in CSV or JSON to use in custom analyses.
Speaking of connecting, MANTA can now read both of the previously mentioned IBM databases in IMM and IGC. DB2 and Netezza users, now you can enjoy data lineage at its finest in your own data management solution. And while we were at it, we also improved our Oracle, MSSQL, and Teradata connectors.
Deeper into Business Lineage
Another life-changing new feature that we already introduced in our last release is business lineage. But, this time we went back to it and added business lineage transformations. From now on, your business team will not only see where the data is coming from, but what happens to it along the way. This makes MANTA’s business lineage as detailed as physical lineage, but in more businessperson friendly language.
Last but not least, we have made a few tweaks and fixes to our native visualization and improved export for IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog 11.5. We’ll be more than happy if you let us know what you think!
