The Data Intelligence Project
Preparing the next generation of data leaders for the data-centric workplaces of today and tomorrow.
Through the Data Intelligence Project, Alation teaches students the language of data in theory and in practice, so when they graduate and go on to work in data-centric companies, they’re prepared to translate knowledge into action.
What is the Data Intelligence Project?
The Data Intelligence Project exposes students to the benefits of a collaborative data catalog environment that can help with real-world data challenges while reducing the overhead to learn about data. Graduates with experience navigating complex data landscapes will be well-positioned to launch successful, competitive careers. Learn More.
We offer our software free of charge, to faculty and students at academic institutions, as a learning tool. With Alation, students learn the critical skills they need to curate, govern, and discover data assets in the data-driven enterprises of today.
