REDWOOD CITY, FEB. 10, 2020 — Next week at the annual Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, being held February 17-18, 2020 in Sydney, Australia, Alation, the data catalog company, will offer attendees who visit its booth at the conference (#S2) the opportunity to choose a charity they would like the company to donate $5 AUD to. For every $5 AUD raised, Alation will also match funds for that specific charity. The charities attendees can choose from include the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, the Australian Red Cross or the NSW Rural Fire Service.

Additionally, Alation customer, Belong, an Australian-based mobile provider, will present in a session at the conference on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 3:05pm AET. Belong’s senior business intelligence specialist, Angela Fraga, will highlight Alation’s award-winning Data Catalog in a session titled “Belong: Creating a Single-Source of Reference with the Alation Data Catalog,” which will be held in the Exhibit Showcase Theater 1 at the conference.

Fraga will take attendees through Belong’s digital transformation journey as self-service data analytics have become central within the organization and she will discuss how this has accelerated their growth, as well as enabled them to deliver an improved customer experience. She will explain the framework the company has deployed to achieve these results and highlight how the Alation Data Catalog has served as its single source of reference for trusted data and greater collaboration across the company.
