Share your SNOWFLAKE Story
Are you a Snowflake customer who has gained big insight and made a big impact by deploying Snowflake in your organization? Summit attendees are keen to hear your inspiring stories of transformation, migration, or innovation. If we choose your session, you’ll receive a complimentary pass to Summit, and Snowflake will cover your airfare and hotel accommodations.
Where have you made big impact?
Data Warehouse Modernization
Have you migrated to the cloud? Maybe you’ve upgraded from another cloud data warehouse to Snowflake. If so, we’d love to hear your story about migration, modernization, or data platform standardization. Share your strategies for successfully implementing Snowflake as your cloud data platform, and the associated business value and success your organization has gained. Weave in stories of how you and your colleagues jobs have changed since switching to Snowflake.
If you operate Snowflake for you organization, regardless of scale, submit your proposed session for this topic. How did you design your solution with Snowflake’s unique cloud-built architecture and built-in security? What tips and tricks did you learn and implement for managing users and growing usage? How have you scaled Snowflake to help your team deliver more impact to your entire organization and to your customers?
Share how you have easily provided more users with access to more of your organization’s data. How have you used Snowflake with your favorite BI and analytics tools such as Looker, Tableau, PowerBI, Sigma, and others to deliver data-driven insights? Highlight your best practices for making faster and more accurate business decisions.
How have you used Snowflake to enable cutting-edge statistics, data analysis, and machine learning to extract knowledge and insights from data? Is Snowflake your single source of truth for sharing consistent data across your organization? How has Snowflake improved your data science outcomes and led to more accurate business decisions? These sessions will highlight the role Snowflake plays in optimizing your data science pipelines and your favorite integrations with leading data science tools such as AWS Sagemaker, DataRobot, Dataiku and others.
Data Engineering & Pipelines
Data warehouses are at the center of every modern data pipeline. They have to integrate well with various streaming data sources such as Kafka, business applications such as SFDC; and ETL tools such as Fivetran, Matillion, and Informatica. Share how you’ve simplified your end-to-end data pipelines, reduced latency, improved reliability, and streamlined efficiency using Snowflake with our partners.
Are you using Snowflake to augment your existing data lake strategy? Have you replaced or consolidated your legacy data lake into Snowflake? Get ready to share how your data strategy has changed and the impact that a fast and consolidated cloud data platform makes on your business.
Secure Data Sharing and Exchange
Are you sharing data with your partners, suppliers, vendors and customers? If so, your fellow Snowflake customers would love to hear your innovative use cases for Snowflake’s Secure Data Sharing, including our Public and Private Data Exchanges. Have your accessed new data types across and beyond your organization thanks to Snowflake? Have you built new revenue streams? Are you monetizing your data? If your answer is “yes” to any of these use cases, then we want to hear from your.
Developing on Snowflake
Are you a developer or startup building new products and services on top of Snowflake? Share your ideas, experiences, and approaches to successfully integrating Snowflake within your analytical app.
