Alation’s enterprise data accessibility platform empowers employees inside of data-driven organizations to find, understand, use, and govern data for better, faster business decisions. Alation combines the power of machine learning with human insight to automatically capture information about what the data describes, where the data comes from, who’s using it and how it’s used. Alation is based in sunny Redwood City and funded by Andreessen Horowitz, Bloomberg Beta, Costanoa Venture Capital, Data Collective and General Catalyst Partners.
Alation puts information that you need where you need it and when you need it. Our analysts now write ad hoc queries two times faster and are able to both find and share data and queries more efficiently for their jobs.
Alation has really empowered our entire organization to be more data-driven by writing and running queries in the browser. It’s allowed our team to collaborate and share queries with each other, reducing the amount of repeated work by up to 20%. The automation and query composition capabilities delivered by Alation has allowed Inflection to enhance collaboration, reduce time-to-insight, and increase speed of analysis and sharing amongst our analysts.
We chose Alation because we needed a tool that does documentation right beside our data and right beside our queries. There was just nothing else on the market that I’ve seen that does that. Any other time where I needed that to happen, we usually had to write our own code.
By using Alation, our analysts are realizing 50 percent or more in time savings for composing, sharing and learning queries. What’s especially valuable is that Alation permits easy data exploration and helps us create ‘data stories’ for MarketShare clients. That’s important because we don’t just toss reports at our clients, we deliver the complete story and context surrounding the data and results, showing the assumptions we made and how we came to our conclusions.
