Lake to Snowflake

After migrating to Snowflake at the end of last year, the data team at Canva are already seeing huge benefits. Processing and analysing the 100TB+ of raw events data in Snowflake has helped the team keep up with an ever-growing amount of data, scale resources when needed, and streamline both incoming & outgoing marketing pipelines.

This presentation will include an overview of their current data stack, reasons for migrating off their old data platform, how external tables and Snowflake’s (magical!) handling of semi-structured data made their migration so much easier, and what the future holds for Canva & Snowflake’s journey together.

In this session, Krishna will cover the following:
  • Canva’s cloud data stack
  • Reasons for migrating to Snowflake
  • How key Snowflake features helped speed up migration
  • Before & after statistics
  • Future plans with data
What you’ll get:
  • Live, Snowflake customer presentation
  • Followed by a live Q&A session which Canva will answer any questions you have about how to get the best out of Snowflake
