TopQuadrant and Manta Partner to Further Automate the Discovery of Data

TopQuadrant™, a leading
provider of knowledge graph-based data governance solutions, today
announced that it has partnered with MANTA
to help its customers automate the discovery of data lineage information.

TopQuadrant’s flagship product, TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance
(EDG), helps organizations succeed in data governance. It delivers easy
and meaningful access for all data stakeholders to enterprise metadata,
business terms, reference data, data and application catalogs, data
lineage, data exchanges and pipelines, requirements, policies, and
processes. MANTA helps enterprises all around the world to automate
their data lineage across many different technologies.
On top of its unique data lineage extraction capabilities, MANTA offers
a broad variety of connectors to different data governance solutions, as
well as API.

The technology partnership between TopQuadrant and MANTA delivers an
integration between TopBraid EDG and MANTA. Customers will be able to
take advantage of the combined capabilities for data governance and
lineage insight. After the initial setup, MANTA automatically reads the
customer’s metadata and provides the metadata to TopBraid EDG.

“Our customers are looking to connect the business context and
meaning of their diverse data to its technical metadata in order to
understand and manage it as an enterprise asset. The integration of
TopBraid EDG with MANTA lets them automate the discovery of technical
data lineage embedded in the SQL code and seamlessly bring it into
TopBraid EDG where it gets put in context and connected to other
relevant information,” said Irene Polikoff, CEO of TopQuadrant.

“The end result is faster delivery of comprehensive knowledge graphs
that provide businesses with meaningful information inferred from
connected catalogs of terms, data, technical and business assets. This
enables our customers to comply with regulations, produce accurate
reports, understand the impact of changes and meet other demands common
in today’s data rich environments,” said Ralph Hodgson, CTO of

Tomas Kratky, CEO of MANTA, agrees that this technical partnership gives
the customer outstanding features, that it would be hard to seek in any
other one solution alone, “Building custom integrations for
state-of-the-art data governance solutions such as TopBraid EDG gives
MANTA the ability to serve a broad range of customers, allowing them to
have a data governance solution with flawless data lineage extraction
and visualization capabilities, which allows them to strengthen their
trust in data.”

Both MANTA and TopQuadrant have a very customer-centric approach and are
aiming to target very specific customer needs as well as to become a
one-stop-shop. Even though the partnership has formed only recently,
MANTA’s and TopQuadrant’s technology partnership already hosts its first
customer, a large financial services provider. The joint solution allows
them to have complete trust in their data as well as be compliant with
all global industry regulations.


MANTA automates its customers’ data lineage and enhances capabilities of
data governance solutions. The essentiality of MANTA lies within its
ability to process and understand custom programming code and the
ability to describe its logic. The software uses metadata harvested from
the customer’s systems to visualize data lineage throughout the Business
Intelligence environment. The data lineage can be further used for data
warehouse optimization, lowering development costs, impact analyses,
data migration, data discovery, data security projects and for meeting
regulatory compliance standards for CCAR, HIPAA, BASEL II/III, GDPR and
other regulations. Some of MANTA’s customers include PayPal, Comcast,
Vodafone and OBI. Visit
