Enhancements to Search
More Out-of-Box Visualizations for Catalog Analytics
In prior releases, we’ve added several out of box visualizations to more quickly determine how Alation Data Catalog is used. In 2021.2, we’ve added a brand new visualization for “top search terms”, showing what users are trying to find. Admins also now have the option to embed custom visualizations from third party tools, like Tableau, right alongside Alation’s out of box charts. Check out the blog to learn more.
New Connectors and Version Certifications
In 2021.2, we’ve added a connector for MarkLogic and included version certifications for numerous cloud, SQL, and BI data sources.
