Hear from our CDO on how he is driving data culture at Alation

“Data Culture is just good business. Making decisions according to tradition or opinion not only invites suboptimal decisions, but also stifles innovation and corrodes morale. In a data culture, initiatives are considered and assessed rationally. The organization makes the optimal choice based on the information available, then examines objective performance metrics to validate outcomes, iterating as new evidence surfaces. Data culture rewards curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking, as well as intellectual integrity and humility resulting in better decisions and thus winning as a business.”

– Aaron Kalb, CDO & Co-Founder, Alation
