Today’s data landscapes are complex and highly heterogeneous, with a mix of cloud, on-premises, and legacy systems. As a result, it can be difficult to find the correct data set to use and to know whether that data is accurate. As data-driven decision-making becomes central to every team and business function, and as data volumes and data types have increased, access to trusted data has become a strategic concern.
Organizations leverage the Databricks Lakehouse Platform to unify their data, analytics, and AI. With Alation, data science, data analytics, and AI teams can easily find, understand, and trust their data across both Databricks and non-Databricks data stores. This is accomplished by extending the data discovery, governance, and catalog capabilities built into Databricks and Unity Catalog across other enterprise data sources. With Alation and Databricks’ expanded partnership, customers can now scale data access for lakehouse adoption, discover and migrate high-value data, and with integration with Databricks Unity Catalog, govern and catalog metadata across multiple workspaces. This enables customers to answer bigger, more impactful questions with their data than ever before.
Alation’s Data Intelligence Platform provides a single view of all an organization’s Databricks workspaces and combines that with the rest of their data. This helps identify the most valuable data to migrate to Databricks and empowers all data consumers to better leverage the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.
Alation for Databricks enables organizations to:
Provide visibility and trust during migration: Eliminate the uncertainty in data migration by providing visibility to the migration process, prioritizing the most used data, and guiding users to new data in Databricks.
Facilitate collaboration and build a data culture: Add context and searchable conversations to the cloud data lake to deliver faster and more accurate data science insights, and know which assets can be shared with the entire organization to build a data culture.
Ensure data integrity throughout its lifecycle: Capture the exact flow of your data over time through lineage. Know where Lakehouse data is, where it came from, and where it’s going.
