Cloud Data Migration

Extend business insights to cloud with easy cloud data migration

Overview

Cloud is quickly replacing on-premises as the default platform for managing data. Alation’s data catalog accelerates migration to cloud through deep impact analysis of users and analytical processes, effective change management, and usage analysis to understand what data should or should not be moved — reducing the risks and costs of cloud migration.

Extend Your Insights to the Cloud

REDUCE RISKS AND COST

Conduct impact analysis to better understand the effects of migration on users, reports, and downstream processes in order to reduce risks. Leverage usage insights to ensure that only active, relevant data assets are being moved to reduce cost.

DRIVE RAPID CLOUD ADOPTION

Provide a consolidated view of hybrid, multi-cloud data in a single platform to facilitate self-service access to all enterprise data assets, ensuring a consistent foundation for reliable cloud data.

Perform impact analysis

Alation’s data catalog provides a holistic view of data lineage that enables impact analysis on the data sources involved in cloud migration. This impact analysis enables a deeper understanding of the effects of migration on users, processes, and analytical applications to better support planning and mitigate risks.

Leverage usage insights

Alation delivers insights derived from usage patterns, like which data is actively used, which data is most-used, and what data assets might be related and relevant. This knowledge can ensure that only relevant data assets are moved, thus reducing cost and optimizing the new cloud data environment.

Provide a single view of data

Alation provides broad, deep connectivity and a consolidated view of hybrid, multi-cloud data assets, enabling enterprises to seamlessly access and analyze data from any location and any data source.

We need a single touchpoint to find the right data and persons responsible, rather than spending 80% of time searching for data.
