Build, train, and deploy accurate models
As a data scientist, you are always looking for new ways to build and deploy models with the highest degree of predictive power. You know that the best models are built using high-quality and trustworthy data. And you know there is a lot of great data in your organization that could be used in training models that often goes unused. You need an easy way to find and discover trustworthy data and a way to collaborate with your peers so that everyone can benefit from each others’ work.
How Alation Helps Data Scientists
FIND DATA NO MATTER WHERE IT RESIDES
TRUST THE DATA YOU USE
COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS
PULL DATA DIRECTLY FROM SOURCE SYSTEMS
Why Data Scientists Choose Alation
Find data no matter where it resides
Models are only as good as the data used to train them. More data sources in the enterprise could be used to help round out your input data, but that data can be difficult to find and often goes unused. With natural language search and connectors to a broad range of data sources, Alation helps you find more quality data to build better models.
Trust the data you use
Quality, trustworthy data must be used to build models. Yet it’s hard for you to know whether data can be trusted, and even harder to keep up with changes in quality. With Alation, you can visualize column-level statistics from data profiling and inspect the end-to-end lineage of data pipelines to understand upstream issues that could impact your models.
Collaborate with others
Your peers have often confronted and solved problems that are similar to the ones you are facing. While they are likely open to sharing their knowledge and best practices, you have no convenient way to collaborate with one another. Through features like conversations and query sharing, Alation provides simple ways to collaborate with your peer data scientists and data engineers to reuse existing work.
Pull data directly from source systems
Finding quality, trustworthy data is only half the battle. Querying the underlying data is your next logical step, but you find yourself forced to jump to different tools to issue those queries, introducing friction into the workflow and wasting valuable time. Alation lets you pull data directly from source systems through an intelligent SQL editor, giving you one place to find and retrieve data for use in your models.
