Alation Inc., an enterprise data intelligence solutions vendor, released Alation Cloud Service, a comprehensive cloud-based platform for data intelligence. The platform offers a simple, fast way to drive data intelligence across an organization’s hybrid architecture. The new offering enables customers to leverage innovations through continuous integration and deployment options. 

Alation Cloud Service facilitates data intelligence by connecting to virtually any data source, in the cloud or on-premises, via cloud-native connectors.

This new offering meets the growing expectations for organizations deploying Alation at an enterprise-wide scale. The service improves on Alation’s user experience by empowering organizations to get faster time to value from their data while minimizing IT and administrative overhead. Through continuous integration and deployment options, organizations can leverage the platform’s newest features via ongoing upgrades without latency or disruptions. 

Features include:

  • Data-intelligence-as-a-service. Finding and governing data is difficult enough when it’s sitting in a single repository. In most enterprises, data is spread across multiple on-premises systems and one or more public clouds. Alation Data Catalog drives data intelligence use cases across organization’s de facto hybrid cloud environments. Alation’s cloud offering delivers these same benefits, now available as a service.
  • Faster time to value. Fast and continuous delivery of product innovations is the norm for cloud offerings. With Alation Cloud Service, catalog upgrades and patches are issued CI/CD-style -- ensuring customers reap the benefits of new features just as quickly as they’re made available.
  • No administrative overhead. Alation Data Catalog has always been simple to use and simple to manage. The cloud service takes it a step further. Upgrades, ongoing administration, and disaster recovery are all handled for you, letting you focus entirely on getting business value from the data catalog.
  • Fit for enterprise. With enterprise-grade security and a cloud-native architecture, Alation is built to meet the needs of the largest and most demanding organizations. Alation Cloud Service additionally leverages availability zones and other mission-critical capabilities from our cloud provider (AWS). This ensures the catalog remains a mission-critical foundation for data intelligence in the cloud.
