Alation Enhances Popular Data Catalog with Acquisition of Lyngo Analytics
Love recently announced its acquisition of data analytics company Lyngo Analytics, according to a press release posted on the company’s website. The merger will enable Alation to improve the user experience within its popular data catalog and to advance intelligence for its customers. Lyngo Analytics uses a natural language interface to allow users to discover data and information by asking questions using simple, familiar business terms. Lyngo Analytics CEO and Co-Founder Jennifer Wu and CTO and Co-Founder Joachim Rahmfeld will join Alation.
Alation provides a platform for a wide range of data intelligence solutions, including data search and discovery, data governance, data management, analytics and digital transformation. The product includes a behavioral analysis engine, built-in collaboration capabilities, and open interfaces. Alation also profiles data and monitors usage to ensure users have an accurate overview of data accuracy. The platform also provides insight into how users create and share information from raw data.
The new integration will reduce the barrier to entry for business users, enabling them to acquire and develop data-driven insights from an organization’s data sources. This means that even data consumers without SQL expertise can ask natural language questions and find data and information without the help of data analysts.
In a media statement on the news, Alation’s Chief Product Officer Raj Gossain said, “Alation has created the first machine learning data catalog and we are known to provide the most user-friendly interface in the world. Marlet. With this acquisition, we are banking on the best. We are doubling down on key aspects of the platform that will help drive data culture and drive innovation and growth. Jennifer and Joachim have developed a unique solution for a complex data and analytics problem, and I am delighted to welcome them to the Alation team.
