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 TopQuadrant.

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 for more.
