According to a recent press release, “Alation Inc., the data catalog company, today announced the general availability of TrustCheck, a new set of features that transforms data governance practices. Alation TrustCheck introduces real-time data governance guardrails directly into the workflow of self-service analytics users. TrustCheck users are automatically alerted to both constraints and best practices, leading to more timely, accurate and compliant analysis.”
Satyen Sangani, CEO of Alation, commented, “Knowledge workers can’t (and won’t) continually break their workflow to look up terms, validate the correct application of policies, discover impacts, and ensure data quality. With the release of TrustCheck, we’re bringing policy, quality and usage context directly to the end user. TrustCheck lets every self-service analytics user instantly know whether the data or query logic selected is trustworthy and appropriate, irrespective of whether that data lives in Salesforce, Tableau, or is being accessed directly from a database.”
The release goes on, “According to the May 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications, ‘The recent complexity that is emerging — associated with such things as increased interest in data lakes, and now IoT analytics — is extending the need for operational policy enforcement in analytical use cases.’ In a world of tightly constrained users of analytics, top-down data governance was often successful, but the growth in data and users has outpaced this model’s ability to be effective.”
