Connect to Everything

Integrate Information Across Your Enterprise

Streamline Analytics with Broad, Deep Connectivity

With Alation, enterprises can seamlessly integrate their data ecosystem with the data services they rely on most. Alation’s connectors are prebuilt, fully integrated adapters that extend Alation’s data catalog to a wide range of popular data sources and business intelligence tools. An open connector SDK helps connect to anything that doesn’t have a pre-built connector.
