Gain Deep Visibility Into Snowflake
Manage and enforce policies
Automatically bring your Snowflake policies into Alation’s Policy Center using bi-directional sync. This enables policies to be curated and managed in one place for complete visibility. Policies can be applied and enforced to new data in Snowflake, directly from Alation for end-to-end control. Have confidence knowing only the right people will see the right data.
Streamline data classification
Alation ingests, applies, updates, and synchronizes Snowflake Object Tags for streamlined data classification. Tagged Snowflake data makes it easier to find, protect and apply governance policies. Stay in compliance with critical data regulations, reduce risk of breaches, and activate metadata for better decision making.
Leverage automated column-level lineage to understand data relationships with Snowflake at a deeper level. Easily visualize data problems with bold red lines. Drill down into not only what data is affected by upstream changes, but who is impacted by them. Automation saves time from building lineage manually, and helps make data compliance audits more efficient.
Smarter SQL for everyone
Alation’s intelligent SQL editor gives guidance and trust signals as queries are written. Schedule Snowflake queries to run later, and publish them back to the catalog for others to share and reuse. Query Forms enable users of all technical levels to self-serve answers to analytical questions, without relying on data analysts.
"Alation Cloud Service for Snowflake is a great option for any enterprise beginning their data cataloging journey.
