Capgemini and Alation

The partnership to transform data intelligence

Enterprises today have an abundance of data available to them. Curating it manually is impractical – not to mention costly. And with such a large portion of the workforce working remotely, walking down the hall to gather data expertise no longer works. Data intelligence is required. That’s why Capgemini has launched a corporate venture with Alation.

Alation brings a light to metadata management and cataloging by offering the data unification and data collaboration functionality that most consider as key critical success factors.

Introducing Alation

Alation is the first modern data catalog combining machine learning with human curation. It’s a search engine for an organization’s data – a unique platform designed to help people find, understand and trust data across their hybrid cloud environments. Alation offers behavioral, linguistic, and inferential intelligence to drive a much faster time to insight.
 
The platform maximizes access to trusted data to speed discovery – guiding users to the right data to accelerate analyst onboarding. Alation enforces policies at the point of consumption to balance business value and compliance.

Why we are partners

Recently there’s been an explosion in data catalog vendors. Enterprises are investing in data warehouses and intelligence because they want fast answers. But getting the right data out of the warehouse can be painful. People don’t know where to find reports, which tables contain the right data, or even what the data means.
 
Alation is the most intelligent data catalog with behavioral intelligence powered by Query Log Processing (QLP). Capgemini therefore partners with Alation to help organizations leverage data to make better decisions – and save money by preventing bad queries and costly searches.
