AI 50 Spotlight: Alation - Data Intelligence + Human Brilliance
Alation is the leader in enterprise data intelligence solutions including data search & discovery, data governance, data stewardship, analytics, and digital transformation. Alation’s initial offering dominates the data catalog market and drives data culture for more than 250 organizations globally.
Every day, organizations gather and store petabytes of data about customers, buyer behavior, supply, inventory management, sales, and customer service etc. Yet, incomplete data is the number one reason why AI (artificial intelligence) fails. If users within an organization don’t know what data exists, where it is, and can’t access it, it can’t be fully leveraged. And if the data is located across a variety of complex data environments, the problem is magnified.
Thanks to its powerful Behavioral Analysis Engine (BAE), inbuilt collaboration capabilities, and open interfaces, Alation combines machine learning with human insight to successfully tackle even the most demanding challenges in data and metadata management. BAE goes beyond a search interface, enabling users to quickly find relevant, trusted, and governed information across an enterprise. By enabling data users of varying technical skill sets to easily find, understand, and collaborate on data, organizations can build successful AI models fueled by trustworthy and reliable data that drive innovation, growth, and operational efficiencies.
