Alation 2021.1 Hits GA

news bits alation 

Alation, the data intelligence company, announced the release and general availability of Alation 2021.1. Version 2021.1 includes the following benefits:

  • Accelerated time to insight. A new Open Connect Framework software development kit (SDK) enables third parties, including customers and partners, to build connectors to niche RDBMS and BI data sources. Through containerization, upgrades to connectors can now be managed without disruption to the data catalog. Now, users can query new types of data sources such as NoSQL and application sources, directly through Alation’s intelligent SQL editor, Compose, decreasing the time it takes to discover and generate insights from data.
  • Increased search relevancy. Data domains increase search relevancy by allowing users to narrow their searches based on how data is grouped logically by the organization, such as business unit or geography. The platform’s upgraded user provisioning provides immediate access to role-specific experiences with a one-time mapping of enterprise directory groups and expedites onboarding.
  • New data governance capabilities. New impact analysis reports provide an immediate view into the downstream impact of data changes and help uncover the root cause of issues based on the quality or trustworthiness of upstream data sources. A new profiling integration with Compose also allows users to identify and correct data quality issues as data is consumed.
