Fully-Integrated Data Governance with Alation

Alation integration

Today, companies have to utilize data to generate value while governing it in compliance regulations. If you’re using Alation, you’re a step ahead. You can gather all your essential data and offer it easily to business users to solve mission-critical business problems. However, as you make this data available throughout the company, you’ll face the sensitive data question: what data is sensitive and how can you control access to it?


An Easy Way to Classify and Control Sensitive Data in Snowflake.
The last thing you need is another tool to buy, integrate and manage. “How long will it take to implement? How will it work with our data ecosystem” and the kicker, “How much will it cost?” Many solutions require a six-month implementation, on-premises installation, and a long-term contract. And they cost six figures to start and don’t integrate easily with modern data solutions.

ALTR was built from the cloud up to solve the sensitive data challenges you’re facing, without high costs or complexity. ALTR’s open-source integration for Alation can help you do it quickly, simply, cost-effectively and seamlessly.
