Partnership Establishes Data Lineage Visibility as Key Driver of Data Policy Creation and Enforcement in a Single, Integrated Solution.

BackOffice Associates, the worldwide leader in solutions that solve enterprises’ most complex data transformation challenges, today announced a partnership with MANTA, a leading provider of data lineage and impact analysis solutions. BackOffice Associates will directly embed MANTA’s Flow technology into its suite of integrated information governance and data stewardship solutions. This will enable a market-first solution that offers data lineage tracking, impact analysis and metadata scanning coupled with the power of BackOffice’s Data Stewardship Platform and Information Governance Cloud software for end-to-end data policy setting and enforcement.

“Combining the power of BackOffice Associates’ and MANTA’s technologies offers our global customers a rich, transformative solution that allows them to directly link enterprise data lineage discovery and impact to data policy establishment and enforcement,” said Rex Ahlstrom, Chief Strategy and Technology Officer, BackOffice Associates. “Manta’s metadata scanning capabilities will augment the powerful AI functionality already available in our data catalog, meta data management and business glossary components, while providing elevated visibility into overall data quality monitoring and policy enforcement activities.”

The addition of MANTA’s data lineage and impact analysis software further strengthens BackOffice Associates singular product vision. For example, debugging efforts associated with complex data migration scenarios can be reduced from hours to minutes per incident, delivering significant cost savings. Visual data lineage and impact analysis also greatly simplifies compliance efforts in which understanding how data flows across systems and processes is critical.

“We’re thrilled to partner with BackOffice Associates to deliver actionable data lineage visibility across global customers’ enterprise data initiatives,” said Tomas Kratky, CEO of MANTA. “Deeply embedding our offerings will give enterprises a greater, richer level of data governance to drive the development of sound information governance roadmaps.”



MANTA helps enterprises all around the world to automate their data lineage across many different technologies. Complete data lineage enables our customers to improve their data governance, comply with regulations and unlock the potential of existing data governance solutions. We started changing the world of BI in 2013 in Prague, Czechia and quickly expanded to the rest of Europe and the US, currently providing data lineage capabilities to companies all around the world.
