“The ShortList™ is the first place business and technology leaders go for vendor selection, based on the collective view of Constellation’s clients, partners, and analysts who are on the front lines of understanding the technology landscape,” noted R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “Our analysts know that vendor selection is more of an art than a science and that the listed vendors all play a special role by industry, geography, and size of company. We know these are tough decisions and we hope this helps buyers get a head start. For those who want a detailed analysis, we are there to help with short advisory calls.”
Additionally, Alation customer Texas Mutual Insurance Company (TXM), the state’s leading workers’ compensation provider, has been named a finalist in the prestigious 2021 Constellation SuperNova Awards in the digital safety, governance, and privacy efforts category for its implementation of Alation. The SuperNova Awards recognize individuals and teams who are prioritizing disruptive technology and transforming their organizations with digital initiatives, achieving remarkable results, including competitive advantage, cost savings, and quantifiable improvements in agility. Customers like TXM have leaned on Alation to ensure the data behind each analysis is trustworthy and enable them to make critical business decisions rapidly.
“It’s time to rethink data governance,” said Satyen Sangani, CEO and co-founder of Alation. “If companies are going to be agile in their decision-making, they need their data to be similarly responsive and agile. They also need to drive down the cost of compliance and regulation. A strong data governance program accelerates strategic decision-making and drives efficiency by putting governance capabilities into the day-to-day workflows of every employee.”
