  • February 23, 2024
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Atlan's modern and intuitive UI facilitates quick onboarding for new users.
The Chrome extension and metadata discovery within preferred tools are highly valued features.
Lineage tracking between data platforms and drill-down to column-level lineage aids in investigations.
The tailored implementation blueprint helped us focus on the right tasks.
Atlan's wide range of supported integrations and ease of integration are commendable.
What do you dislike about the product?
Documentation updates were inconsistent, potentially due to rapid development.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We has a collection of data from widely different sources and teams find it dfficult to locate and understand the data they need. By making it all searchable under a single tool is helping a lot. Alongside that, the business glossary is helping teams collaborate and define terms to agree upon.

Lineage across tools and the chrome extension has made it very helpful and easy for teams to adapt to the tool.

  • January 17, 2024
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Atlan provides detailed metadata on data plarforms, It can connect to several data lakes and warehouses and fetches information like usage, lineage, table and column descriptions, no of queries, table level activities etc. It enables data lake warehouse usage analytics easy and user friendly. AI generated suggestions for deble and column description feature is also usful. Integration with communication tools like Slack save time to communicate and describe tables to users
What do you dislike about the product?
Sometime Atlan is bit slow to load all information about a data asset, which can deter users. Role based access mechanism is useful for user authorization, but sometime it is confusing if you have access to multiple roles.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Previously it used to take a lot of time find usage details, lineage information, quality information about a data product. Now, Altan showcases all metadata information about all data assests in a central place. Its hugely time saving for data engineers, analysts, and data scientis to get information about the product. Data assets can be easily shared accross by integrated communication tools like Slack. Overall it plays a crucial role in the journey of data analytics democratization throughout the organization.

Best in Class Data Catalog

  • January 05, 2024
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
It is one of the best data catalogs in the market and I would say it has the best UX. It is easy to adopt and is designed to be close to where your users are looking at data (It has a plugin), which makes adoption a lot easier.

We are still rolling out all the features, but so far we have seen a lot of value, specially using the lineage functionality.
What do you dislike about the product?
It would be great if they had an easy way to add assets they have no connectors for. While the APIs are great, one of the reasons we selected them, there are tools where using engineering resources is too expensive or the tool we want to connect to does not have APIs. I understand we would not have all the features the API or the connector gives us, but it will not stop us from adding ALL data related reports in Atlan. Right now, we found a hack using Glossaries, but it would be ideal if they could make that available without hacks.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
It is making it easy for our users to discover our data assets and self-serve themselves at scale.

It is saving us a lot of time when we need to do an impact analysis e.g. what assets will be impacted downstream from making this change in our warehouse.

It is helping us streamline how we manage our data assets and making it the central place for all things data. Data consumers can submit tickets on a dashboard that has a bug or if they have an idea. It is a repository of all our knowledge around specific assets.

Best-in-class Active Metadata Management Tool

  • December 12, 2023
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
1. Atlan is deeply committed to innovation. Its products, such as Atlan AI and Atlan Mesh, are redefining the concept of an Active Metadata Management tool, also known as a data catalog.
2. The customer support and customer solutions teams at Atlan are highly engaged in helping clients achieve their goals. They often create custom packages or solutions to meet specific needs.
3. Atlan’s Chrome extension is noteworthy. It offers the convenience of an embedded Atlan solution within Databricks, Power BI, Google Chrome, and other platforms, eliminating the need to switch between applications. This seamless integration enhances user experience and productivity.
What do you dislike about the product?
While the product documentation is publicly available, some of it is outdated, which can sometimes lead to confusion among clients. Additionally, information about bugs and fixes is not readily available on the official website. Once a request is opened, it’s currently not possible to assign a priority level to it. This is an area that could benefit from improvement.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Previously, Data Discovery was only available for a select few data and analytics roles. However, Atlan has provided the opportunity to leverage data quality from data assets through impact analysis and root cause analysis.
With Atlan’s workflow features, metadata and lineage curation have become possible. The tool also allows for the massive import of Business Metadata with custom packages and automation (playbooks).
Reporting analytics is another key feature of Atlan. It generates insights from tool usage, providing valuable data such as the number of weekly active users, the number of curated assets, assets with lineage, popularity, and more. This information can be instrumental in understanding user engagement and improving the overall user experience.

Atlan: A New Cornerstone In Our Data Management Journey

  • December 05, 2023
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Atlan seamlessly integrated into our modern data stack, with Snowflake and Sigma at its core. The integration with Sigma, empowered by the Chrome Plug-in, emerged as a standout feature for us, elevating user experience and adoption. With the Chrome extension, all users in our BI enviornement have an enriched experience with Atlan providing data definitions and lineage while also enabling users to submit Jira tickets without leaving Sigma.
What do you dislike about the product?
The Atlan University is a great resource and training tool. However, the format of the short videos without seamless transitions could be improved.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Our initial use case was finding a tool that could enhance our Data Governance strategies. However, when evaluating the product we found feature after feature that could either enhance user experiences, increase efficency, or identify cost optimization opportunities. Atlan quickly solved our Data Governance use case, but it also became a cornerstone for creating an enriched data enviorment through the creation of data glossaries, adding content and tags to objects via automated playbooks, and creating an opportunity to explore data and where it comes from through the lineage functions.

New Data Governance Strategy Easily Implemented with Great Platform

  • November 29, 2023
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
1.) Using lineage to conduct impact and root cause analyses to clean up our data. We were in the middle of a data re-architect before bringing in Atlan and now having it we can easily spot assets without queries or downstream attachments for clean-up and deprecation.

2.) Easy to use and intuitive UI, the browser extension is icing on the cake, end users can view information in Atlan without having to switch from their current screen to the platform, which is going to aid immensely in adoption. We've had users already solve issues using Atlan with little to no training.

3.) Customization features from personas and policies, to customizable messaging and scorecards to ensure integrity and accuracy the first time.
What do you dislike about the product?
1.) Some of the sublayers in licensing privileges are not clearly delineated and need to be specified at the persona level which could cause overages. A great example is insights licenses are not granted at the individual level.

2.) Atlan only goes to the tile level in Looker, it would be nice if they went all the way to the calculation for lineage and specificity without having to manually define it.

3.) The UI has basic spelling and grammar errors that could be cleaned up.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
- Curate sources of truth for data, document processes and definitions in one place, ensure relevance with periodic reminders.
- Implement standard communication processes.
- Mapping data from source to destination for root cause and impact analysis
- Permission and access governance
- Standardization across the tech stack
- Scorecards on metadata reporting to ensure maximum business ROI

Transforming Data Management at CouponFollow

  • November 22, 2023
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
I am most impressed by Atlan's ability to demystify complex data sets and provide actionable insights.It was very easy to set up, and we quickly found it useful on a daily basis. Its user-friendly interface allows team members of varying technical abilities to interact with our data more confidently. The AI-powered exploration and natural language processing features stand out, making data discovery not just efficient but also engaging.
What do you dislike about the product?
While Atlan has been a game-changer, initially, there was a learning curve involved in understanding some of its advanced features. However, their support team was instrumental in guiding us through these challenges.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Atlan addresses several crucial challenges in our data management and analytics, bringing a multitude of benefits to our users. One of the primary issues it solves is the fragmentation of data across various platforms and tools. By offering a centralized view of all data assets, Atlan simplifies data discovery and governance, saving time and ensuring consistency in data usage across an organization. This centralization is pivotal for enhancing collaboration and accessibility, especially among teams with varying levels of technical expertise. It democratizes data, allowing both technical and non-technical team members to collaborate effectively, thereby simplifying data understanding and empowering all team members to contribute to data-driven projects.

Another significant advantage of Atlan is its role in improving data quality and trust. It addresses the common challenge of inconsistent data definitions and lack of trust in data quality. By maintaining a single source of truth for data definitions and lineage, Atlan enhances the reliability and credibility of data, leading to more informed decision-making and increased trust in data-driven insights. Additionally, in an era of stringent data privacy regulations, Atlan aids in managing data compliance and security protocols, thus simplifying adherence to regulations like GDPR or CCPA and reducing the risk of data breaches and legal violations.

In essence, Atlan streamlines how organizations manage, understand, and utilize data, directly contributing to more efficient operations, smarter decision-making, and fostering a culture of data democratization.
