Alation Inc., which offers enterprise data intelligence solutions, has acquired Lyngo Analytics, a company that specializes in data insights. Data catalog users will have a better experience within the new data catalog, and organizations will be able to scale their data intelligence capabilities. The company will be led by Jennifer Wu, the CEO and co-founder of Lyngo Analytics, and Joachim Rahmfeld, the CTO and co-founder of the company.

Raj Gossain, Chief Product Officer, Alation, said, “Alation created the first machine learning data catalog and we’re known for providing the most user-friendly interface on the market. With this acquisition, we’re building on the best. We’re doubling down on key aspects of the platform that will help drive data culture and spur innovation and growth. Jennifer and Joachim developed a unique solution for a complex data and analytics issue, and I’m excited to welcome them to the Alation team.”

With Lyngo Analytics, users can discover insights using natural language by asking questions in terms of familiar business terms. Alliance provides the most intelligent, user-friendly, and accurate machine-learning data catalog available. Alation further enhances its support for non-technical users by integrating artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology from Lyngo Analytics into its platform.

With this integration, business users have a lower barrier to entry. A wide spectrum of enterprise data sources can now be used to acquire and develop data-driven insights.

By using natural language, data consumers without SQL expertise can ask questions and find data and insights without requiring the assistance of analysts. This acquisition makes data and analytics more accessible to a broader audience, allowing for broader adoption of data culture.
