In our ongoing series on data catalogs, Mona Rakibe illustrates their importance through an analogy in our previous blog: “Unorganized data is like buried treasure without a map. It’s immensely valuable but remains inaccessible and underutilized without a data catalog.” This underscores how data catalogs are crucial for harnessing the full potential of data in any organization.

Alation is renowned for its machine learning-driven data catalog, which makes it excel at searching and discovering data assets.  In his article, Matt Weingarten emphasizes Alation’s unique approach to data organization. He points out that Alation excels in cataloging data by creating individual pages for each schema. These pages are enriched with comprehensive details, sample data, and lineage tracking. This method, as Weingarten notes, significantly improves data accessibility and understanding, thereby becoming a pivotal tool for data governance and informed decision-making in organizations.

As Ankur Gupta points out in his article, integrating data catalogs with data observability tools ensures a fortified data governance approach. Data catalogs would lay the groundwork by structuring data asset information. Data observability tools would provide real-time insights into data’s health and quality, thus providing a more comprehensive and nuanced understanding of data within organizations.

This foundation positions Alation as an ideal platform for integrating data observability tools like Telmai, further enriching its capabilities in data management. Watch the video below to understand how the integration works.
