Snowflake: the modern engine for data-driven applications and services
Increasingly, new markets and opportunities are emerging based on the creation of data and insights from data as the primary, profit generating business asset. Solutions and services reliant on data analytics require an infrastructure for data warehousing and analytics that is powerful and highly performant to meet the needs of customer demand.
The data warehousing infrastructure must also be scalable to handle demand spikes, as well as long term business growth. However, as many organizations discover, a scalable data warehouse isn’t enough.
Scaling traditional on-premises or cloud data warehouse solutions is disruptive, involves downtime or requires manual effort by a data warehouse admin or data engineer. This adds delays and overhead to data assets, reducing business efficiencies and profits.
Snowflake provides builders and developers of data-driven applications and services a ready-made data warehouse infrastructure and engine to run analytics. Snowflake requires no data warehouse infrastructure building, no low-level management and can instantly scale with no intervention. You can focus and maximize your data engineering resources on creating and delivering your data-driven products and services.
