Manta-Prolifics Microsoft Purview Connector (MPP)

Today’s hybrid workspaces require data to be accessed from a plethora of devices, apps and services across the globe. Data governance is not easy. You need a methodology and approach and a strategy to get it right. And lineage is just one piece of the major puzzle that is governance.

The Manta-Prolifics Microsoft Purview (MPP) Connector is designed to enhance the data lineage capabilities for Microsoft Purview customers beyond standard features. It’s created for systems where data lineage isn’t automatically captured and empowers users to leverage Manta for automatic collection of lineage information, without the hassle of custom development.

A recent study by Forrester Consulting highlights that only 42% of organizations have the competence to train Gen AI models, while a massive 89% fail at getting business data ready for Gen AI. Moreover, only 23% of the organizations have implemented a governance plan.

Capabilities of MPP Connector

Seamlessly integrating this data into Purview, MPP offers a comprehensive lineage view, enabling better tracing of data journeys across on-premises, multi-cloud, and software as a service (SaaS) data. Rolling out new capabilities help organizations integrate Manta into their own data governance solutions, including Microsoft Purview, so they can make headway in their digital transformation journeys.

  • Enhanced Lineage Integration: Integrate Manta’s sophisticated lineage seamlessly into existing Microsoft Purview solutions.
  • Comprehensive Governance Initiatives: Enable comprehensive governance initiatives for improved data management and compliance assurance.
  • Unified Lineage Capture: Expand across diverse tech types* (e.g., ETL tools, databases, BI platforms) beyond specific systems like IBM DataStage, SSIS, MS SQL, Power BI, and SSAS. Seamlessly integrate lineage from any Manta-supported source for broader insights compared to Purview alone.
  • Deeper Lineage Access: Creates a link back to the detailed lineage viewer in Manta, providing Purview users with access to a more comprehensive lineage view compared to what is provided by the Purview UI.
