Unlock the Full Potential of Power BI with Data Lineage from Manta
Power BI is a tool developed by Microsoft that provides its users with interactive data visualizations. These reports draw from database files such as XSLX, CSV, and others. The resulting visualizations include slicers, measures, calculated columns, aggregations, and data hierarchies, and provide metadata such as Power Query scripts, endorsement levels, DAX formulas, authors, last modifications, and more. Power BI supports paginated reports for RDL, RDS, and RSD files.
Power BI reports (.PBIX files) are widely used and commonly applied to make critical business decisions. Manta’s integration with Power BI provides business value by illuminating embedded calculations and components that can be difficult to track, and tie the underlying metadata back to its source systems. Manta can scan Power BI reports, datasets, and associated database connections before pushing the lineage into IBM IGC, Informatica EDC, and Collibra DGC.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a data lineage scanner?
A data lineage scanner connects to database repositories, ETL tools, reporting tools, and other types of source technology to document how data flows, transforms, and impacts assets both downstream and upstream as well as where the data is sourced from, making it possible to gain full visibility and control over even the most complex data pipelines.
How flexible is Manta when it comes to possible integrations?
Can I integrate Manta with my CICD pipeline?
Yes, Manta can be utilized as a component of a CICD pipeline to supplement teams’ development efforts.
How can Manta integrate with my data intelligence?
You can boost your data intelligence efforts with detailed, accurate, and up-to-date data lineage provided by Manta. Manta has a robust API for developing integrations with data intelligence tools.
Can I integrate Manta with my data privacy tool?
Yes, you can leverage Manta’s comprehensive data lineage to build trust in data, ensure data security, and adjust your data privacy policies. Manta has a robust API for developing integrations with data privacy tools.
Can I integrate Manta with my profiling tool?
You can utilize Manta’s detailed lineage and unique features for data profiling and achieving better data quality. Manta has a robust API for developing integrations with data profiling tools.
How can Manta integrate with my metadata management tool?
Manta has OOTB connectors to all the major players in the data governance/cataloging space. Manta also can export its repository to consumable formats for unsupported third-party metadata management applications.
Does Manta work with various ETL orchestrations?
There will always be technologies on the market that don’t have supported scanners provided by Manta. In order for the lineage from unsupported technologies to be represented in Manta visualization diagrams, Manta provides a framework called Open Manta. The Open Manta framework makes it possible to define and manage lineage generated by unsupported technologies.
How can I improve lineage data quality?
When you have a complete overview of all your data flows, sources, transformations, and dependencies, you have control of your data assets. You can speak to the accuracy and quality of your data and have confidence in your data information and reports. By giving you a full overview of how your data moves across systems, where it originated, how it transforms along the way, and how it’s interconnected, data lineage can help you to ensure the quality of your data, reinforce your overall data management strategy, and increase trust in your data.
What is the purpose of data lineage?
Data lineage helps you tame data complexity and gives you a full overview of how your data moves across systems, including where it originated, how it transforms along the way, and how it’s interconnected. Such an overview will help you boost your data governance efforts, increase overall trust in data, achieve full regulatory compliance, accelerate root cause and impact analyses, roll out our frequent bug-free releases, painlessly migrate to the cloud, and more.
