Redwood City, Calif. – April 7, 2021 – Alation Inc., the data intelligence company, today launched Alation Cloud Service, a comprehensive cloud-based platform for data intelligence. Alation Cloud Service offers a simple, fast way to drive data intelligence across an organization’s hybrid architecture. The new offering results in faster time to value, lower maintenance and administration overhead, and enables customers to leverage innovations faster through continuous integration and deployment options.

Alation Cloud Service drives data intelligence with its ability to connect to virtually any data source, in the cloud or on-premises, via cloud-native connectors. The cloud service is available through Alation and on Amazon Web Services (AWS) via AWS Marketplace, providing customers with new and convenient fulfillment options.

This new offering meets the growing expectations for organizations deploying Alation at an enterprise-wide scale. The service improves on Alation’s award-winning user experience by empowering organizations to get faster time to value from their data while minimizing IT and administrative overhead. Through continuous integration and deployment options, organizations can leverage the platform’s newest features via ongoing upgrades without latency or disruptions.

“We’ve always believed that speed to deployment and time to value are fundamental strengths of Alation’s platform. Alation Cloud Service doubles down on that value proposition,” said Satyen Sangani, CEO and co-founder, Alation. “Now, not only does Alation’s ease-of-use drive adoption, but new deployment options allow organizations to innovate and collaborate on data faster than ever before.”
