The First Data Catalog Designed for Collaboration

Data Marketplaces Distribute Tribal Knowledge

For years analysts have relied on IT for the development of data products - assuming that data was a stable commodity. But the reality of today’s data is different.

Listen to industry analyst Dave Wells discuss how the agile nature of data is driving changes in data distribution. He sees a future for data consumption through a curated marketplace rather than a warehouse of stored data products.

Hear how four key capabilities drive collaboration in a curated marketplace for your data:

  • Categorization
  • Curation
  • Cataloging
  • Crowdsourcing
See how Alation delivers these capabilities in a catalog built for collaboration with a demo to close out the webinar.
