Rick Whiting

Managing ever-growing volumes of data continues to be a challenge for business and organizations. Here are 10 cool big data management tools and platforms that have caught our attention.

Alation Cloud Service

Alation has expanded its original data catalog software into a 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 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 company, based in Redwood City, Calif., said 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.
