Snowflake for education
From K-12 classrooms to cutting-edge university teaching and research, data-driven analytics delivers better student outcomes and better educational experiences. Until now, big data in education required significant effort to somehow derive insight through time consuming, complex analytics solutions that stretched the technical skills and patience of business intelligence professionals.
To overcome these challenges, educational institutions use Snowflake’s modern, cloud-built data warehouse to derive immediate value from all their data, bypassing the burden and cost of traditional on-premise and cloud solutions. Snowflake enables educators to understand the entire student experience, from all touchpoints and data sources, to determine what’s working, identify which students may be in danger of falling behind, and to learn how to improve their experiences for better outcomes.
Deliver Self-service Analytics
Leverage your existing skills and minimize the need for scarce data warehouse and noSQL expertise. Easily access and query data with zero maintenance so your IT and data professionals can focus on strategic projects.
Find Deeper Insights across your Data
Don’t just crunch numbers. Use the power of SQL to uncover insights from all your data and correlate with classroom or remote event information to create better student learning experiences.
Combine Diverse Data Sources
Rather than spending time and effort to combine multiple data repositories, use Snowflake to house all your varying data types — structured and semi-structured — inside a powerful but simplified cloud-built data architecture.
We threw some of the most complicated data and application code at Snowflake, and it processed it easily and with excellent results,” Frederick said. “This assured both our IT and end users we would have the agility needed to process new forms of data as social media and other data channels continued to evolve.
