Alation 2021.1 also includes:
- Accelerated time to insight.

“Fortune 1000 and Global 2000 firms have invested in a myriad of best-of-breed technologies, data sources, systems, and tools. They need the freedom to deeply connect to and integrate these investments without being dependent on a particular vendor,” said Satyen Sangani, CEO and co-founder, Alation. “By transforming the catalog into an open platform for data intelligence, our customers can deploy and realize benefits in the short term and have a robust, extensible architecture they can build on top of in the long term.”
Alation 2021.1 drives adoption of the platform across the enterprise by meeting the growing requirements of business users, data analysts, and data engineers.
The release also includes Search API that allows for the simple integration of Alation Search with third-party tools.
Updates to Enhanced Analytics allow users to analyze and filter search terms by date range and user.
