Alation Acquires Lyngo Analytics to Elevate Language Interface to Data Consumers
Friday 15 October 2021

California-based enterprise data intelligence solutions provider Alation Inc. has acquired California-based data insights company Lyngo Analytics to offer SQL to data consumers through a simple, natural language interface, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition will elevate the business user experience within the data catalog, scale data intelligence, and help organisations drive data culture.

Lyngo Analytics uses a natural language interface to empower users to discover data and insights by asking questions using simple, familiar business terms. Alation offers an intelligent and user-friendly machine-learning data catalog.

By integrating Lyngo Analytics' artificial intelligence and machine-learning technology into its platform, Alation deepens its support for the non-technical user, converting natural language questions into SQL.

The acquisition is the latest milestone for Alation, which announced a USD 110m Series D funding round and a USD 1.2bn market valuation in June 2021.
