Why CIOs Choose Alation

Identify cost optimization opportunities

Identifying cost optimizing opportunities is essential for any CIO.

Alation also reduces the time IT spends on satisfying data requests from the business. With Alation, diverse classes of users can self-serve by discovering data and its associated metadata, as well as by querying and analyzing that data.

Scale data governance and privacy

Manually prioritizing business-critical data can be time consuming. Alation automates governance through AI- and ML-based capabilities, like intelligent data stewardship, an automated business glossary, and analytics on stewardship and user activities. Data privacy tasks including PII discovery, data classification, categorization, and tagging are also automated to help you scale data governance and privacy. Alation partners with key privacy vendors to deliver a rich set of data privacy capabilities.

Reimagine IT as a collaboration engine

Nothing gets done in the IT organization without collaboration, but it’s often hard to identify SMEs and data experts. Alation enables collaboration among data consumers and creators across the organization so you’re asking the right questions to the right person. Alation’s machine-generated and crowdsourced knowledge capture combined with fully searchable, integrated conversations keep everyone connected.
