Data Catalogs – Taming the Wild West of Self-Service Analytics


Only 29% of companies successfully connect analytics to action. Why? Lack of trust. Trust in data can accelerate insights, driving greater returns from self-service analytics. But establishing that trust requires automation to keep up with the proliferation of both self-service data assets and the context of data in the enterprise. Join us to hear how the industry’s leading data catalog engages both humans and machines together to deliver a single point of reference for trust in enterprise data. We’ll share a perspective on growth in the data catalog market, international adoption of Alation and plenty of examples of how the Alation Data Catalog is driving increased analytic productivity for our customers.
