Alation Creates Partner Program to Strengthen the Data Catalog Space

Alation Inc., the data catalog company, is launching the Alation Partner Program which will be dedicated to the successful enterprise-wide deployment of data catalogs.

 The program has launched with a select 12 partners, including Agilisium Consulting, Information Asset, Tableau and Teradata.

“Successful data catalog deployments go beyond simply installing the software and require expertise to drive success, cultural change and widespread adoption. Data catalogs can build the foundation for instilling confidence in data-driven decisions,” said Satyen Sangani, CEO of Alation. “With the Alation Partner Program, we are ensuring that customers have the expertise they need no matter what their data and self-service environments look like.”

One focus of the partner program is fulfilling the needs of customers to achieve success with enterprise-wide metadata management.

Data catalogs naturally elevate the role of metadata, turning metadata management from a narrow, IT-focused initiative into a broad source of knowledge for self-service analytics users.

With a data catalog, metadata can be used to drive proactive data recommendations on what data assets to re-use given the context of an analytics inquiry.

By partnering with leading regional systems integrators with metadata management expertise, like Agilisium and Information Asset, Alation enables customers to architect effective metadata management strategies that leverage a data catalog as the single source of reference for the entire enterprise.
