The world today is becoming more technologically advanced. Internet use is becoming a more integral part of businesses today. Companies prefer cloud because a file cabinet can be accessed from anywhere connected to the internet, it is affordable, highly scalable, it has flexibility of work practices and access to automatic updates.
Snowflake helps all the organizations to be data-driven. Its cloud-built data warehouse helps in providing immediate elasticity, safeguarding data sharing and per-second pricing, across multitude clouds.
Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
The problems Snowflake witnessed
Traditional data warehouses were not matching the demand for data-driven insight. They are complicated, expensive and inflexible systems that have become setbacks rather that being a solution to access and analyze all your data.
How did Snowflake solve it?
Snowflake developed a unique data warehouse architecture that delivers relational database support for both structured data, such as CSV files and tables, and semi-structured data, including JSON, Avro, Parquet, etc., all within a single, logically integrated solution.
The company designed a new SQL data warehouse and it is developed to manage all aspects of data and analytics. And as a result, it started delivering performance, simplicity, concurrency and affordability which is not possible with other data warehouses.
The company says that it is proud to be named ThoughtSpot’s Technology Innovator Partner of the Year! And it is looking forward to continuing to innovate with cutting-edge partners like ThoughtSpot. #data #innovation
Snowflake combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions to help government agencies meet their data-driven objectives.
Centralized, Shareable Data
Snowflake provides a constant, integrated view of intra-agency and cross-agency, structured and semi-structured data. Snowflake also permits firms to share live, governed data without having to transfer shared data.
It is fine with agencies sharing governed data internally, among departments, across agencies or with partners outside, suppliers, vendors, and citizens too.
Transparency, Compliance & Security
Snowflake meets NIST 800-145 need and is also FedRAMP ready. Along with this SOC 2 Type 2, PCI DSS compliance, and support for HIPAA compliance confirm the level of security for Snowflake.
Effortless IT Modernization
Snowflake drives business intelligence, analytics, data science, visualization, and data-driven decision-making. The company says, “We do this by taking all the information from your transactional legacy systems and performing the heavy data lifting within a cloud-built data warehouse with built-in performance, security, scalability, and concurrency. This enables government organizations to deliver intuitive and efficient services to government and citizens via innovative data analytics.”
How Snowflake helps IT?
IT firms are now managing more data than before. It can be ticket management, asset tracking, budgeting, staffing, or software monitoring, managing that data in a speedy manner helps them serve their organizations better.
It is unfortunate that the available technologies make it difficult to elastically expand – up, down and out (concurrency) – to match the cloud scale required of modern organizations.
“We never want to make a decision that isn’t based on data, and Snowflake allows us to achieve that by managing all of our data in real time at the scale we need.”
-Charlie Fung, Engineer Lead, Lime
