The Snowflake Data Cloud – Mobilize Data, Apps and AI

Data has always been crucial to all business operations. The difference, however, lies in the way data is managed. Gone are the days when data management was solely a manual task. Today, data is shared on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid modes. Snowflake, one of the leading data migration companies, is leading the industry with its innovative solutions and world-class data cloud platform, paving the way for data consumers and providers to access and transfer data on a single platform easily.

Creating a secure data ecosystem that will unleash the latent potential of data and unlock new opportunities, Snowflake helps enterprises break down silos and collaborate across industries and oceans. Faster insights, improved decision-making, new revenue sources, and advanced functions—Snowflake allows customers to store and share data in any format and query it however they want without replicating it.

The Snowflake Platform is a single, global medium that supports the Data Cloud. The platform is built to connect businesses worldwide across any type or level of data, support different workloads, and enable seamless data collaboration. Snowflake’s platform offers the performance, scalability, and flexibility needed to load, merge, process, and share data securely and quickly. As a fully managed service, Snowflake is user-friendly in its usage yet robust enough to run heavy and essential functions with abundant concurrency.

The data migration landscape is marred by challenges stemming from resource contention; Snowflake provides an effective solution. Snowflake’s elastic single-performance engine offers instant and unlimited scalability. It can support countless concurrent users and handle workloads with safe and fast performance driven by Snowflake’s multi-cluster resource isolation.

Additionally, Snowflake is fully automated, allowing users to harness data. Organizations can reduce manual management and maintenance dependency by leveraging automated tools to operate at scale quickly, optimize costs, and prevent downtime. The platform can also effortlessly balance all data-related operations, from management, security, and governance to resilience and availability, reducing risk and boosting overall efficiency.

Snowflake is not just a better mousetrap. It’s a whole new way to think about data. — Frank Slootman, Chairman & CEO.

In a world where remote and hybrid models are taking center stage, Snowflake offers a way to collaborate securely despite being on opposite ends of the planet. Eliminating the need for ETL and data siloes, Snowflake provides secure access to shared single copies of data across departments, business units, and subsidiaries. The Data Cloud is a copy of the organizational layout—only virtually. Therefore, Snowflake’s cloud platform connects an enterprise’s supply chain with business ecosystem partners like in a physical workspace.

Snowflake’s portfolio represents the company’s expertise and experience and is a testament to its innovative solutions. Always prepared for any challenge, Snowflake has assisted companies across the world with data-related problems.

One of Snowflake’s global food chain clients collected data from various sources, such as delivery channels, marketing campaigns, and supply chains, and stored all datasets in a single SQL database in the company’s primary data center. While this method proved effective initially, it soon stopped supporting high-performance operations. The company realized the increasing volume of data was making it difficult for the database to carry out core tasks. Ultimately, the company required Snowflake’s assistance when the existing database could not perform the analysis needed to generate restaurant report sales by channel per day.

With Snowflake’s data-sharing platform, the company could readily make key sales, and inventory and operational data became accessible to external parties like suppliers and agencies, increasing the number of parties sharing the data from three to over thirty. By creating its database platform on Snowflake, the restaurant devised an efficient data management and analysis process that boosted all operational and marketing activities. Moreover, the Snowflake platform significantly reduced operational IT costs, and migrating all data to Snowflake reduced database operation expenses by 70%.
