Brilliance Badges

What’s a Brilliance Badge?

A Brilliance Badge is a way for learners to show what they know as they increase their knowledge and skills about The Alation Data Catalog and build their own data culture. These credentials earned through several of our Alation University courses represent short, competency-based recognition of specific content.
