Data Warehouse Modernization
Learn how you can tackle new data warehouse challenges and positively impact your Snowflake migration. You’ll hear from Snowflake customers who continue to deploy Snowflake in new and innovative ways as they migrate from legacy on-premise and cloud solutions to Snowflake. You’ll also hear from Snowflake product experts about how to leverage Snowflake to accelerate your migration, control costs, deploy security best practices and much more.
Data Warehouse Modernization Sessions
Scaling Adobe Audience Manager with Snowflake
In 2015, Adobe and Snowflake embarked on a nine-month migration journey of Adobe’s 150-terabyte Audience Manager legacy database, which has since grown to a petabyte! To eliminate resource contention, we redesigned ETL jobs to run multi-threaded processes leveraging dozens of warehouses. In this session, we will do a deep dive into our “overlap reporting” ETL jobs, and explain how we resolved cluster scaling and reduced run time from 48+ hours to fewer than 12 hours on Snowflake.

Breaking Down Data Silos with Snowflake
Cisco e-commerce platform is a custom-built mission-critical platform, accounting for $40+ billion of Cisco’s annual revenue. Previously architected by combining data across multiple data sources, including MongoDB, Elasticsearch, RDMS, Cassandra, and others, getting a single source of truth was difficult. In this session, Cisco will discuss how Snowflake solved the siloed-data problem and became a single data warehouse for all of their e-commerce platform needs.
Delivering a Smooth Transition to Snowflake
At Doordash, delivering goodness is part of our culture. With more than 500 employees writing ad hoc queries on the back of thousands of ETL jobs, our analysts and operations teams rely on our data warehouse to deliver on this promise. In this session, learn how Doordash used Snowflake to implement parallel ETL pipelines, socialize new SQL nuances, and used a “fuzzy match” QA strategy to check billions of rows to optimize customer experience. Learn how the engineering migration was accomplished, and avoided unnecessary roadblocks to minimize disruption for internal employees.
Driving Modern Analytics in the Cloud
Learn how a small data engineering team at CarRentals, a division of Expedia Group, leveraged Snowflake to replace its legacy cloud data warehouse, and easily maintain and support a highly scalable modern data analytics solution. You’ll find out how CarRentals shifted its focus from low-value, reactive efforts — to strategic data projects and their associated technical and business benefits.
Office Depot’s Journey From On-premises to the Cloud
Learn how Office Depot migrated from a traditional on-premises data warehouse to Snowflake. We will start with our selection process and how we developed our criteria and ultimately evaluated Snowflake’s key features. We will then walk you through our implementation approach, including key design patterns and the creation of an automated converter tool.
Hitting an Analytics Home Run with Snowflake
How do you turn customers into fans with modern data analytics? Learn how the San Francisco Giants enabled a customer-focused, data-driven culture to engage and serve their fans rain or shine, on and off the field. The Giants created a master “baseball fan” layer using Master Data Management techniques, achieving faster speed-to-insight, and democratized data as part of a shift to a data-driven culture.
Managing Multiple Snowflake Accounts
Migrating from a legacy data warehouse is often times challenging. In this session, you will learn about a number of new SQL features relevant to accelerate migrations, such as Snowflake’s stored procedure and recursive CTEs and CONNECT BY functionality.
Instant Elasticity, Concurrency & Cost Control in Snowflake
Join us to learn about Snowflake’s unique approach to auto-scaling concurrent workloads via multi-cluster warehouses. You’ll also learn how to manage and control compute costs and leverage Snowflake’s account usage secure data share to better understand and monitor your usage.

Snowflake Security Best Practices & Roadmap
Security has been core to Snowflake since day 1. This session will cover Snowflake’s native security features, including federated authentication and OAuth, helping you avoid error-prone manual security measures. We will also introduce new security features available soon in preview.
Additional sessions will be added.
