Snowflake is a popular cloud-based data warehouse offered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). It offers businesses all the features similar to modern data warehouses, including scalability, ease of use, secure data access, accelerated analytics capabilities, and much more.
Why Did we Decide to Add Snowflake as Warehouse Actions?
There are multiple warehouses to choose from, but Snowflake stands out from the rest because it logically separates storage and computes resources. This excellent feature significantly reduces overall data storage and processing costs.
RudderStack already supports Snowflake as a destination, which means you can easily ingest your customer data from multiple customer tools into Snowflake in real-time, using RudderStack. Further, you can run user queries on Snowflake via RudderStack and pass the results as events back to RudderStack using Snowflake Warehouse Actions. This enables sending Snowflake-enriched customer event data to your third-party marketing and analytics destinations for more advanced activation use-cases.
Snowflake goes beyond a typical data warehouse and helps unlock your data’s full potential without creating any data silos. \
How do our Customers use it?
Snowflake Warehouse Actions allows customers to route all Snowflake-processed event data to different third-party analytics tools for further analysis in the desired format.
Customers use Snowflake data for the following:
- Running customer engagement programs through tools such as Braze
- Performing product analytics through tools such as Mixpanel, PostHog, and Iterable
- Leveraging attribution tools such as Adjust, AppsFlyer, Kochava.
Customers sync Snowflake as a warehouse source to over 80 destinations supported by RudderStack.
