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 podcast: Connecting the Dots with George Anadiotis

I've got tech, data, and media, and i'm not afraid to use them.

My name is George Anadiotis, and i am a writer, a planner and a doer. I am an Onalytica Top 100 Influencer in Big Data and Cloud, a Knowledge Graph expert, and a VentureBeat and ZDNet contributor, among other things.

Linked Data Orchestration is my brand. This podcast is where i share my work, as well as conversations with people who bring interesting news and views to the table.

I've hosted from the likes of Gary Marcus and Andrew Ng to emerging thinkers and innovators across multiple domains. To subscribe to the Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music and more, hit the Subscribe button!

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

Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.

Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
