Deliver Trusted Data to Data Consumers

An Integrated View into Data Quality

Overview

Data consumers get a consolidated view of enterprise data assets and their data quality, and can view data quality metrics, rules, and warnings. The Alation Open Data Quality Initiative adds the ability to instantly access data trustworthiness, extending what Alation already collects to support data users’ evaluation of data sources and creating a one-stop shop to find, understand and trust their data.

Concepts like “data fabric” suggest that customers should be able to assemble the best heterogeneous data systems together. The Open DQ API Initiative extends Alation’s existing commitment to platform openness and to an ecosystem approach to the marketplace.

Establish glass in data catalog

Easily Assess Data Trustworthiness

The data catalog has emerged as the place where users self-service data and reports. For this reason, these users need to be able to self-serve trustworthy data to perform their jobs faster. Specifically, they need to immediately assess data trustworthiness.

Make Discovery More Valuable

The goal is to create a one stop shop for data consumers to view data quality recommendations and lineage. This surfaces data quality metrics directly within Alation’s data catalog for business users, business analysts, and data scientists.

Reduce Risks and Costs

Data consumers need context about an asset’s quality to use it wisely. Alation catalogs valuable data quality information and metadata (metrics, reports, and lineage) with its parent asset so users can confidently leverage. With this information, a more complete data governance solution is created. DG App can relate data quality rules to overarching data quality policies captured within Alation.

Open and Extensible

The Open DQ Initiative gives vendors, partners, and customers a starter kit including the API, documentation, an onboarding walkthrough, and integration best-practices.These enable all your data consumers to access trusted, reliable data. This empowers all people — from business users to analysts, data scientists, and stewards — with real-time visibility into data health.
