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.
