Alation

Alation is best suited for data analysts and data scientists to understand the business using the metadata that it curates. It provides a platform for users to be able to run queries and share them with other users, which creates a collaborative environment. It is a single source of truth to learn more about the data you work with daily.

OneTrust

OneTrust is well suited to our organization because it is cost-effective for the number of requests to access or delete information that we receive from customers. As we do not receive an overwhelming amount of requests and the workflows are comprehensive, it is a good fit for us. It is less appropriate if our volume of requests were to increase and cause the need for automation of executing the requests.

OneTrust

  • Customizing tabs in workflows would be helpful, as they are not all always needed.
  • Customizing e-mail alerts--there are way too many.
  • Customizing content in e-mail alerts--they are vague and don't alert you to what exactly needs to be done.

Both our customer rights access and cookie consent advisors were responsive and helpful in getting us trained on using the platform and the various assets implemented on our website. We had multiple training sessions that were more than enough in getting all of the users on our team familiar with what we needed to do.

Alternatives Considered

Alation

Apache atlas, LinkedIn Datahub, Lyft Amundsen are some of the open-source tools we've explored before using Alation. Alation is way advanced over these tools and it has AI capabilities to help you write queries in an automated fashion. and learn more about the data in an easy way. It's very helpful in the data world.

OneTrust

We evaluated Clarip, but it is not showing up on this list. It is a similar solution to OneTrust but provides a much more broad scope including full automation of processes to delete and access customer information based on requests. They were exponentially more expensive than OneTrust, and due to the level of our current requests, we did not feel the investment was needed.
