A Business-Led Approach to the Role of Data Governance
Overcome Data Governance Challenges through Autonomous and Continuous Improvement
As a data governance leader, you drive initiatives and align strategic priorities to both grow and protect the business. Despite buy-in from the top, your programs are often met with resistance. Data governance, and the technologies that go with it, are often seen as at odds with the goals of the business and end users.

Embrace Active Data Governance
Embrace an active approach to data governance
Everyone gets the inherent importance of frameworks, maturity models, and policies. But when it comes to putting these into action, you struggle to get the business engaged. With Alation, you can connect policies to action in users’ familiar workflows through an active approach to data governance.
Govern how data is used
You want greater control over your data, and you want data to be used in only the ways intended. But you also recognize that data does what people tell it to. Alation enables teams to recognize and formalize people’s existing relationships with data, helping drive a compliance-aware culture and delivering greater value from your data assets.
Operationalize data governance
You recognize that there is no finish line to data governance and that continuous improvements are necessary. But you struggle with identifying where improvements are needed. Alation actively measures progress against policies, standards, and targets by using analytics to identify and address information gaps – helping you operationalize governance.
Scale data governance
Staying compliant and building insights on top of good data requires constant vigilance since data is coming in faster than you can curate it. Alation’s Behavioral Analysis Engine leverages AI/ML and automation to scale governance and help prioritize stewardship efforts.
