Rick Whiting

Working with ever-growing volumes of data continues to be a challenge for business and organizations. Here are 10 cool big data tools that caught our attention in 2021.

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.

The new cloud offering, with its continuous integration and deployment options, provides a simple way to drive data intelligence across an organization’s hybrid architecture with lower maintenance and administrative overhead and faster time-to-value.
