Alation’s vision is to help consume data as an organization, to empower a curious and rational world. This means that people need to be able to ask questions and generate value and efficiency to help digitize business. To get there, organizations need to establish a data culture throughout the enterprise. But that’s really hard work. People, process, and technology have to be in place.

The Active Data Governance approach means you need to be able to assign the right level of ownership for data without creating friction or risk. That way we ensure people are working with the right data in the right way, considering relevant regulations and policies, or whether this it is the best data set to use from a quality point of view.  This is done by:

  • Formalizing relationships with data
  • Operationalizing policy into action at the point of use
  • Community-driven collaboration and crowdsourcing
  • Automated and guided AI and ML
  • Agility to adjust to changes in the business environment
