Solnet partners with Alation to empower New Zealand organisations to unlock the power of data intelligence

Accelerate the journey to trusted, business ready data with a local provider delivering a world-leading platform

Solnet, a trusted consulting and technical enablement partner, announced its partnership with Alation, a leader in enterprise data intelligence solutions, to support organisations as they accelerate their digital transformation journey. With Alation and Solnet, New Zealand organisations across government and private sectors can shift to digital channels and unlock data trusted data to be used for innovation, including cloud transformation, data governance, and self-service analytics.

Solnet has advised some of Aotearoa’s leading organisations for many years and is aware of organisations attempting to consolidate data to make it more accessible and allow teams to look for data they need in one place. However, this is no longer a realistic approach given the sheer complexity of the modern data environment and the speed that organisations are expected to move.

Alation’s Data Intelligence Platform solves this by enabling data consumers across an organisation to find, understand, and trust data. With Alation, customers have a singular view of their trusted data that spans multiple sources, across on-premises and cloud environments. Now, users can identify critical data to migrate to the cloud, easily search for and discover trusted data, and understand when and how to use data.

Solnet’s 100% local consulting and technical implementation team, paired with Alation’s Data Intelligence Platform, improve customers’ ability to identify and mitigate data-related risks while driving maximum value from their most important data assets.

"Many organisations want to gain valuable insights from data, but today's data landscape is complex. Often, data is scattered across the organisation, making it challenging to extract value and leaving risk for reputational harm, especially when it is unclear who is using and accessing data," says Mark Botherway, Managing Director of Solnet. ‘We’re here to advise our clients on how to best achieve their goals while leveraging the benefits of leading technology providers, such as Alation.”

“We deliver connectivity to more than a hundred data sources within the data ecosystem,” said Paul Sheehan, Partner & Alliances Director of Alation, ANZ. “By partnering with Solnet, who holds deep experience in operationalising critical data management and governance processes, we’re empowering anyone to find, understand, and trust data. We’re excited to work closely with Solnet to help customers leverage trusted, business-ready data.”
