Boost your productivity
As a business analyst, you play a critical role in driving the business forward. You are charged with analyzing data and delivering timely insights to key internal stakeholders. Yet finding the data you need, and understanding it once you’ve found it, presents a big challenge, especially as the volume of data grows.

Spend 70% less time searching for data
Spend your time analyzing data to help your organization gain competitive advantage, rather than spending most of your time trying to find relevant data. Alation gives you a single location to find data through a natural language search interface, saving you the time and hassle of scouring data sources individually.
Rapidly query and analyze data
SQL can be daunting. The accuracy of your analysis often depends on knowing which tables to join or how best to filter data. Alation’s intelligent SQL editor provides automatically-generated suggestions based on how other experts have done it to help you write queries faster. From Alation, you can even connect to your favorite BI tool to visualize results.
Collaborate with your peers
Your peers can benefit from your work, and you can benefit from theirs. Yet collaborating around data and analytics is often a disjointed affair made even more challenging by the increasingly global, remote nature of today’s workforce. Alation’s out-of-box collaboration feature, like conversations and query sharing, make it simple to collaborate and build off the work of others.
Use data with confidence
Once you’ve found data, how do you know whether it can or should be used? Alation surfaces the context you need about data, including descriptions, quality flags, and usage information — right at the point of data consumption. Alation gives you confidence that the data you’re using is right, and that you’re using data correctly.
