Active Data Governance

A business-led, value-driven approach for enterprise needs

Overview

Alation’s active, people-first approach to data governance differs from the traditional approach by prioritizing people over data – focusing on business needs, delivering trusted data, and driving adoption by embedding governance in the users’ day-to-day activities – thus effectively facilitating compliance and managing risks.

Data governance initiatives succeed when governance systems are integrated with day-to-day business workflows and activities.

PEOPLE-FIRST APPROACH

Guide and formalize people’s behavior by discovering their relationship with data

SCALE GOVERNANCE EFFORTS

Enable intelligent governance through the automation of cataloging, stewardship, and data classification

FOSTER COLLABORATION

Actively engage the business by crowdsourcing knowledge, disseminating siloed knowledge, and incentivizing positive behavior

DELIVER TRUSTED DATA

Establish trust in data by surfacing usage patterns, quality flags, warnings, and associated policies

Discover and govern your strategic data

By inventorying, classifying, and curating data and knowledge, Alation provides unparalleled visibility into enterprise data assets. In contrast to a time-consuming top-down, siloed approach, Alation enables organizations to focus their governance efforts on the most critical data assets in order to have the greatest impact on the business.
