Since I joined Snowflake, I have been asked multiple times what data warehouse modeling approach Snowflake best supports. Well, the cool thing is that Snowflake supports multiple data modeling approaches equally. Turns out we have a few customers who have existing data warehouses built using a particular approach known as the Data Vault modeling approach, and they have decided to move into Snowflake. So the conversation often goes like this.

Once upon a time, the retail calendar centered itself on the Christmas season. Now, the retail surge is year-round. Not just the wave of traditional seasonal holidays from Valentine’s Day to the 4th of July, but also newer sales holidays, such as Cyber Monday, or even holidays created by some gigantic companies themselves, like Amazon’s Prime Day. Now, instead of a steady pace leading up to a frenzied December, retailers are in sprint mode all the time.

Today’s organizations want stronger alignment between the cost of SaaS solutions and the value derived from these products. As a result, many software companies are looking at adopting consumption-based pricing models as an alternative to subscription models. With consumption-based models, customers only pay for what they use, and usage is tied directly to the value customers derive. Of course, consumption means software companies don’t experience revenue until customers use the solution.

Teams working on data science initiatives are tasked with deriving new insights from massive amounts of data. To accomplish this, teams work with compute environments that require heavy operational overhead, which means most of their time is spent extracting and processing features for machine learning model training and inference. Pairing Snowflake’s near-unlimited access to data and elastic processing engine with the most popular programming languages can change that, so more time can be spent on model development.

Many organizations struggle to share data internally across departments and externally with partners, vendors, suppliers, and customers. They use manual methods such as emailing spreadsheets or executing batch processes that require extracting, copying, moving, and reloading data. These methods are notorious for their lack of stability and security, and most importantly, for the fact that by the time data is ready for consumption, it has often become stale.

Read about Snowflake's comprehensive approach to protecting data and access to data.

Snowflake’s mission is to enable every organization to be data-driven. Our cloud-built data platform makes that possible by delivering instant elasticity, secure data sharing and per-second pricing, across multiple clouds. Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

Conventional data platforms and big data solutions struggle to deliver on their fundamental purpose: to enable any user to work with any data, without limits on scale, performance or flexibility. Whether you’re a data analyst, data scientist, data engineer, or any other business or technology professional, you’ll get more from your data with Snowflake.

What Makes Snowflake Unique:

  • A Multi-Cluster Shared Data Architecture Across Any Cloud: Easily scale up and down any amount of computing power for any number of workloads or users and across any combination of clouds, while accessing the same, single copy of your data but only paying for the resources you use thanks to Snowflake’s per-second pricing.
  • Secure Data Sharing and Collaboration: Eliminate the cost and headache of static data sharing methods by easily sharing any amount of live structured and semi-structured data, without having to move data, whether it be across your enterprise, with customers and business partners, or to monetize your data.
  • One, Near-Zero Maintenance Platform Delivered as a Service: Choose any combination of infrastructure providers, enable your workloads where you want, rely on Snowflake to manage the data platform, and deploy across and between different clouds and regions to support business efficiencies and data sovereignty.

A Modern Data Platform Built For Any Cloud.
