At Alation, we're connecting people with the data they need. While the rest of the world ponders what to do with so much data, we're busy making corporate data more accessible, better understood and far more useful.
Alation was founded in 2012 when PhD engineers from Google, a designer from Apple, and an executive from Oracle teamed up to create a new way to work with data. Today, our team consists of creators and communicators with varied backgrounds; from Stanford and Cal, big companies and one-man startups, the United States and abroad, we all came together to work toward a shared vision of a world where informed decision-making is the norm.
We’re based in sunny Redwood City, CA and funded by top investors like Andreessen Horowitz, Costanoa, Data Collective, Bloomberg Beta and General Catalyst Partners. Our customers include some of the world’s largest organizations, with thousands of employees and petabytes of data.
