Alation Data Catalog

Alation Data Catalog

MANTA can connect to the same databases and BI servers as the Alation Data Catalog, analyze them, and expand the data in Alation. MANTA automatically retrieves information about database scripts, BI reports, and transformations in ETL tools; creates data flows; and uploads them to the Alation Data Catalog. MANTA can also connect to already-existing data in Alation, thus, for example, adding more links between database tables.
