Alation Partners with Dataiku to Improve Governance of Sensitive Data for AI Models

Alation, a provider of enterprise data intelligence solutions, has formed a partnership with Dataiku, an enterprise AI and machine learning platform, to ensure that sensitive data used to create AI and machine-learning models is properly classified and governed.

According to Alation, data science teams depend on its technology for critical insight into the right data to use, enabling them to find and understand trusted data with deep context for data modeling. With the Alation and Dataiku integration, data scientists have immediate access to curated data ingested directly into Dataiku. Models trained in Dataiku can then be governed and shared within Alation, making data science insights available to a broader user group throughout the organization. The integration will result in decreased time spent searching for data and subject matter experts, while also ensuring data quality.

Now, Alation users can discover models, recipes, and projects built in Dataiku and ensure models adhere to emerging data privacy regulations, and are properly governed by stewards and data scientists.

“We are excited to partner with Alation, as this marks the first industry partnership that allows data scientists to catalog and govern models directly within a machine learning platform,” said Florian Douetteau, CEO, Dataiku. “Our partnership with Alation will enable data scientists to leverage more datasets across the enterprise, further highlighting the work these critical data users do for the rest of the enterprise.”
