Pioneers Wanted: MANTA Connectors for Pig and Talend

Pioneers Wanted: MANTA Connectors for Pig and Talend

MANTA Business
November 9, 2018

We are upgrading our technology stack again and need you to try out our connectors! Since the last release, MANTA has supported Pig, and before Christmas, you can look forward to a gift from us: software release 3.23 with support for Talend.

Every time we begin supporting another technology, it is a big step for us. We always look for pioneers who have this technology in their metadata management environment and are not afraid to take the challenge of testing it in the field, giving us feedback, and allowing us to tailor the technological connector to fit the actual solution.

The Pig Connector

When we came out with MANTA 3.22, we provided our customers with the Apache Pig connector.

Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large sets of data in Apache Hadoop. Pig Latin programming language is a high-level, procedural language for expressing data analysis programs. Pig’s structure enables substantial parallelization.

MANTA understands Pig Latin and is able to analyze and visualize it. MANTA is able to scan:

  • Pig Latin statements
  • Relations
  • Bags
  • Tuples
  • Fields

The Talend Connector

In our last release of the year, we are going to introduce our Talend connector. Talend Data Integration is an open-source-based ETL tool. The software is driven by the commercial open-source vendor Talend and is used for the visual design of data transformations with a number of ready-to-use components and connectors.

MANTA understands both Talend Open Studio for Data Integration as well as the commercial edition. MANTA will be able to export and analyze:

  • Projects, jobs, and subjobs
  • Connectors
  • Components
  • Expressions
  • SQL overrides
