MANTA offers a powerful scanner for the Microsoft SQL Server technology. Once configured, MANTA can automatically connect to the MS SQL resource for extracting and analyzing the pertinent metadata within the selected databases. This metadata includes but is not limited to tables, views, indexes, SQL procedures, schemas, databases, columns, and triggers. Then, MANTA can parse all the SQL programming code and logic stored within. This allows MANTA to generate lineage down to the column level while showing all transformation logic associated with individual column elements.
