The traditional approach to Data Governance is failing. It focuses too much on process and risk mitigation, and not enough on people and increasing business value. Alation takes a different, value-driven approach, with active Data Governance. This methodology allows for standing up a governance program quickly and iterating constantly to improve it over time.

In this session, we will:

  • Explain our people-first approach to active Data Governance
  • Explain our data governance methodology
  • Show our Data Governance-specific product features and benefits
