Power your data fabric with active metadata
Hybrid cloud environments need flexible architecture. Enter data fabric, which connects users to vital tools and data, and scales as you grow. Alation infuses this data fabric with metadata — so its structure reflects behavior. Metadata from other data sources, too, is collected, clarified, and interwoven into the data fabric. The result: superior data & analytics solutions that leverage the IQ of your enterprise.
Guide users with behavioral metadata
Many tools capture business and technical metadata, but behavioral metadata is often left out. Behavioral metadata includes important social signals, such as how data is used and who is using it. Powered by the Behavioral Analysis Engine, Alation surfaces insights in the form of popularity, search relevancy, usage recommendations, and more — guiding users to the best use of data.
Put the metadata where it needs to be
Metadata shouldn’t be kept locked up in source systems or even a data catalog. Users, after all, leverage a range of different tools as part of their data workflow. Alation Data Catalog supports the bi-directional exchange of metadata, giving users and tools a convenient way to find, understand, and trust data wherever they happen to be.
Initiate trusted data pipelines with lineage
Lineage is metadata that captures data origin, users, and transformation over time. Alation gives you a visual of end-to-end data lineage, laying the foundation for both compliance and trusted data pipelines. As well, impact analysis reports make it easy see the potential downstream impact of your changes to data.
