Alation for Public Sector

Modernize data system to deliver missions, protect data, and improve services

Overview

Government mandates and changing population needs are reshaping how data is used to deliver programs, protect citizens, and improve their lives.

Governments today leverage data to better support their citizens. As state and local governments seek to provide services more effectively, the challenges of breaking down data silos, providing transparency, and enabling safe data-sharing become all-important.

Federal agencies need smarter, safer data access to protect national interests, modernize government services, and improve efficiencies at every level.

How Public Sector Entities Use Alation

Modernize Data Landscapes

Data spread across legacy sources can slow programs, and make health agencies struggle to respond to public crises. Agencies must modernize data systems, streamline access, and leverage the cloud. The Alation data catalog enables agencies to understand their data assets, speed access to data and guide cloud adoption.

Create Efficient Access to Data

Democratizing data can be difficult at large government agencies. For one defense agency, it took weeks for analysts to access mission-critical data. How can agencies provide real-time access to data securely? Alation supports safe, smart data access with a UX that amplifies visibility alongside in-workflow guidance, so people are guided to the best data in accordance with security clearances. Mission-critical insights can’t wait. With Alation, they don’t have to.

Foster Data Governance and Transparency

How do you empower people to access data and understand it? Agencies need to enable data visibility within a strong governance framework. In Alation, people find data, see its full lineage, and crowdsourced comments on its value.. Active data governance enables teams to surface more data to analysts alongside crucial context about that data.

Optimize Information-Sharing

Searching for data and getting clearance to share it can be a time-consuming process. A security agency striving to better share data sought to support data discovery and access to documentation while maintaining security with governance. Alation delivers data context to speed discovery and collaboration. Users can now find, understand and share data with governance and compliance.

Consolidate via Catalog

Agencies need to connect data across multiple programs and platforms. One constituent may have records in up to a dozen systems and agencies need to act on the correct data for the task. The Alation data catalog consolidates agency data in the governance framework, so workers can see the right data and apply policies to ensure proper use.
