Vodafone uses Manta in its data warehouse for analysis, optimization and control of data flows. From our tool pack, Manta Checker and Manta Flow were deployed.
A tool for quality assurance and coding standards
Manta Checker deals with old sins – parts of code in the data warehouse (Teradata scripts and Informatica workflows) were supplied by a huge number of external developers over the years, at various levels of quality and in different styles. Further development of this system was highly complicated. Manta Checker verified every snippet of code, even before it was inserted into the system, and performed automatic repairs where possible. Automated code reviews helped improve quality, quicken development and save a lot of resources. Otherwise Vodafone would have had to spend money on long manual code reviews.
A solution for impact analyses and data flow monitoring
Manta Flow visualizes metadata in the data warehouse. Vodafone’s new BI solution was implemented with its own metadata manager, but it was really difficult to effectively monitor data flows. Manta Flow was used as one of the components and provided complete control of data flows in the whole system. The analytic team now has a much simpler job when creating impact analyses for new parts of the system.
Manta Tools facilitates Vodafone’s BI management, simplifies quality assessment and methodology control, and saves time on manual code reviews. Permanent link to this case study.
