Modernize your data architecture
As a data architect, you create blueprints for data management and analytics ecosystems. You assess potential data sources, both internal and external, and design plans to acquire, catalog, integrate, transform, protect, and deliver usable data to business stakeholders. You modernize the data architecture to meet the growing needs of business with speed and agility and enable employees to access critical information in the right place at the right time.

Embrace a consumer-centric approach to data management
How do you ensure your data consumers can locate data for analysis, understand the data, and evaluate its suitability for their purposes — all without compromising the privacy of protected data? Alation caters to multiple personas – including analyst, data engineer, data scientist, and business user – helping them search & discover data across today’s de facto hybrid IT environments.
Ensure efficiency with intelligence and automation
Not all solutions improve productivity and reduce manual work. Alation offers greater efficiency by leveraging AI/ML to help you discover and extract metadata, surface behavioral insights, and guide users. Alation also detects changes in source schema and identifies the impact of these changes on downstream objects and applications. Subscribed users can also be proactively alerted to these changes.
Power hybrid IT and multi-cloud
Today’s hybrid and multi-cloud environments make it challenging to find the right data. With Alation, you have a single location for users to find, understand, and trust data across the organization’s hybrid IT environment. Through containerization and a cloud-native architecture, Alation is able to seamlessly support an increase in users, data sources, queries, and data intelligence use cases.
Lay down a trusted foundation
Security is top of mind for nearly every organization as insider and outsider threats abound. Alation provides strong encryption, granular authorization, and authentication that can be tied to your existing identity management systems. Alation has also certified against the ISO27001:2013 framework. Together, these capabilities ensure the Alation Data Catalog is both trusted and secure.
Build for production-readiness
You expect production-readiness from the software you deploy in your environment, including the data catalog. If something does go wrong, you need an easy way to rollback changes and go back to the ‘last known good’ version. Alation delivers industrial-grade backup and restore functionality to ensure the data catalog can be restored when needed. And with Alation Sandbox, you can test upgrades and patches without impacting production in any way.
