A new press release states, “Alation Inc., the data catalog company, and First San Francisco Partners, a business advisory and information management consultancy, today announced a strategic partnership to meet the needs of Chief Data Officers (CDOs) seeking to bring trust to data-driven decisions. The partnership focuses on delivering new, field-tested methodologies for agile and modern data governance, made possible by data catalog technology. ‘The immense supply of data combined with the demand driven by AI and self-service analytics has disrupted traditional governance models. Traditional top-down workflow-driven governance can no longer cope with the volume of data and the complexity of use. Customers require more agile and modern approaches to data governance. With the Alation Data Catalog and the introduction of TrustCheck, data teams apply policies to massive volumes of data and guide behavior in real-time,’ said Satyen Sangani, CEO of Alation.”
The release goes on, “The partnership between Alation and First San Francisco Partners represents a commitment to providing data and analytics leaders, including CDOs, with field-tested best practices that incorporate data cataloging into holistic data governance practices. The first generally available methodology from the two companies will focus on building governed practices for agile data acquisition in the enterprise, followed by a second offering focusing on data stewardship for the optimized use of data.”
