Alation Cloud Service
Alation has been expanding its original data catalog software into a broad platform for a range of enterprise data intelligence tasks including data search and discovery, data governance, data stewardship, analytics and digital transformation.
In April the Redwood City, Calif.-based company extended those capabilities to the cloud with its new Alation Cloud Service, a comprehensive cloud-based data intelligence platform that can connect to any data source—in the cloud or on-premises—through cloud-native connectors.
