Snowflake Integration

Snowflake is a modern cloud data warehouse known for its speed, scalability and high performance. It provides a secure platform to share and manage your data workloads at any scale. Snowflake is touted as a modern data warehouse with advanced data science and app development capabilities. It also supports augmented data lakes and simplified data enrichment techniques.
With almost no effort required to handle it, Snowflake allows you to focus on getting actionable and meaningful insights from your data, instead of worrying about the data management aspect.

What You Can Do with Snowflake

  • Simplify all your data warehousing and analytics needs
  • Work with varying data sources and types without worrying about compatibility issues
  • Integrate popular Business Intelligence and Data Science tools
  • Develop modern data-driven applications using its powerful querying capabilities
  • Eliminate the management and administration aspects of traditional data warehouses

Setting up a Snowflake data warehouse on your own can be quite exhausting and time-consuming. You have to build and maintain the data warehouse from scratch, in addition to defining the schema that determines how the data from the sources gets stored in the warehouse.
