Data quality is part of data intelligence. It's a topic that lot of people are concerned about, and it makes engagement and adoption around data intelligence solutions better. With many data quality solutions with different approaches available in the market, customers need to be able to choose the one that works best for them.

Plus, if you are someone like Alation, a vendor whose core business is not data quality -- if you can't beat them, join them. As Alation CEO and co-founder Satyen Sangani shared, that was the thinking behind today's announcement of the Alation Open Data Quality Initiative (ODQI) for the modern data stack.

As Alation notes, the program provides customers with the freedom of choice and flexibility when choosing the best data quality and data observability vendors to fit the needs of their modern, data-driven organizations. We caught up with Sangani to discuss the ODQI and where it fits in the broader data intelligence landscape, as well as Alation's strategy and evolution.

Orchestrate all the Things

Connecting the dots with George Anadiotis: Analyst, Consultant, Engineer, Founder, Host, Researcher, and Writer.

Stories about Tech, Data, AI and Media, and how they flow into each other shaping our lives.

I’ve engaged from the likes of Gary Marcus and Andrew Ng to emerging thinkers and innovators across multiple domains.

My stories have been featured on ZDNet and VentureBeat, and are syndicated across DZone, Hackernoon, Medium and Substack.

Some might call this futurism; let’s just say it’s connecting the dots

Many conversations have a technical focus. Most also examine business perspectives and use cases, while others are socio-technical.

Some are analyses on emerging themes – picking them up early, featuring expert comment, or offering alternative takes.

Others cover breaking news, typically also featuring the people behind them plus some analysis. There are some book reviews as well.

I focus on the connection between data, analytics, data science, graphs, machine learning and AI and their impact on society and business.

I have been covering topics related to:

  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Data, Analytics and Data Science
  • Knowledge Graphs, Graph Databases, Graph AI & Data Science
  • Innovation, and a wide array of technologies such as Blockchain, Cloud, Observability, IoT, Open Data and Open Source, Social Media and Software Engineering.
