Alation Named Snowflake Data Governance Partner of the Year
June 2023 by Marc Jacob
Alation, Inc. announced at Snowflake’s annual user conference, Snowflake Summit 2023, that it has been named the Data Governance Partner of the Year by Snowflake, the Data Cloud company. Alation was recognized for the third consecutive year, demonstrating the company’s continuing role in delivering data intelligence for Snowflake Data Cloud.
The proliferation of data sources and increasing data volumes have made it more difficult than ever for organizations to find, understand, and trust the data they need to become data-driven. Traditional governance solutions responded by taking an overly restrictive top-down approach, preventing business teams from self-serving and discovering data. These approaches also excluded teams from participating in the governance process by removing their ability to curate and document the data assets that were most important to them.
Alation’s Data Intelligence Platform makes it easy for everyone to find and understand the data they need. The platform and user experience were designed to enable data governance as a collaborative endeavor, enriched by including a broad range of users. For example, teams closest to the data can create their own business glossaries. At the same time, Alation’s platform also allows organizations to set company-wide governance policies where it makes sense to do so, for example, with respect to personally identifiable information. Alation’s federated data governance approach enables the whole organization to discover the knowledge, information, and context needed to be more data-driven.
