Take the Work Out of Data Stewardship
The conventional approach to governance lacks automation and agility; it ultimately fails to close the gap between unprecedented volumes of data in enterprises and limited stewardship resources. The result is an insurmountable amount of work for stewards with little tangible business value.
Scale Stewardship Efforts to Maximize Data Use
REDUCE TIME SPENT ON STEWARDSHIP EFFORTS
AUTOMATE DATA CURATION
RECOGNIZE AND EMPOWER DATA STEWARDS
MEASURE STEWARDSHIP PROGRESS
Built on a Continuous Improvement Framework
Data doesn’t sit still, and neither should data governance. Alation’s active approach to data governance is modeled on the continuous improvement methodology. This means that in each cycle, data is improved and less effort is invested in governance, as data is matched to organic stewards.
Automate the Drudgery of Stewardship
Alation automatically suggests new business glossary terms using AI/ML. It links those terms to relevant data, fostering data literacy and saving valuable time and effort for the stewards.
Behavior Intelligence Makes Stewards More Productive
The Alation Data Catalog and Data Governance App deliver behavior intelligence based on usage patterns like popularity, ranking, and top users. This intelligence drives automated stewardship and accelerates curation efforts, saving time and enabling scale. The AI/ML is being used to automatically determine stewards based on learning, but where a topic area is new the stewardship workbench allows humans to manage assignment and acceptance of curation assignments.
Track, measure, and report impact
Alation’s Stewardship Dashboard measures, monitors, and tracks stewardship activities. The Stewardship Dashboard enables stewards to prioritize, delegate, and report metrics on curation progress and delivers crucial feedback on the impact of stewardship efforts.
The value of opportunity cost that subject matter experts save as a result of Alation is huge.
