Automatically map business terms
Alation’s data catalog automatically suggests new and popular business terms to incorporate into business glossaries. Machine learning auto titles technical metadata with logical business terms, accelerating the building and maintaining of business glossaries. Alation’s Analytics Stewardship application automatically identifies stewards and subject matter experts based on behavior insights, accelerating productivity.
Promote crowdsourcing and collaboration
Alation actively engages and incentivizes relevant stakeholders, like line-of-business stewards, subject matter experts, to define, document, and certify business assets. Crowdsourcing and collaboration via built-in capabilities such as conversations, inbox, trust flags and stewardship dashboards that track and measure curation progress, make knowledge capture and sharing intuitive.
We have over 300 metrics defined and standardized across the enterpise so everyone is able to define and measure success the same way.
