    Amazon Quicksight is a truly cloud-based solution so it works perfectly fine and saves a lot of expense in terms of hardware and maintenance. We can maintain it by ourselves by giving commands on UI. If you have connectivity issues then it can cause headaches because it's a cloud platform and it's a bit costly as compared to other services
    Lakhan Suri | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Snowflake

    For an organization that has small, medium, or large data collection, Snowflake provides the best infrastructure to store, manage, utilize and analyze the data. Especially for companies that are growing at a really fast pace, it helps you not only with warehouse capabilities but also its connection with several BI tools give you the flexibility and option to connect and analyze the data [in] real time.

    Pros

    Amazon QuickSight

    • Easily to set up for data sources, already supports quite a few of AWS and non-AWS data sources
    • Cost friendly since users are charged only for basis of usage

    Snowflake

    • This is a cloud-based application that provides me a secure platform for the easy sharing of data with my clients.
    • I feel confident to connect with my numerous business partners just because of its advanced security and effective programming.
    • Through this tool, I am capable of integrating, analyzing, and the entire data in a precise form and with analytics as well, due to which I always have a transparent idea about the data extraction and its transfer from multiple clouds.
    Darren Mihalic | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Amazon QuickSight

    • It is still immature as a cloud-based BI tool.
    • Its functionality is about 40-50% of its competitor's products.
    • Application is still a little buggy and non-intuitive at times.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Snowflake

    • Snowflake UI can be clunky and breaks sometimes, which can be annoying
    • Snowflake has to be paired with the Data Build Tool (DBT) to allow for templating and macro usage. No inbuilt solution.
    • Snowflake Python connector development doesn't necessarily track popular packages such as Pandas as quickly as Pandas releases
    • Could do with better machine learning capability over warehouse tables, but I assume this is coming soon

    SnowFlake is very cost effective and we also like the fact we can stop, start and spin up additional processing engines as we need to. We also like the fact that it's easy to connect our SQL IDEs to Snowflake and write our queries in the environment that we are used to

    It is easy to use and set up no need to put in so much effort. Once build, the dashboard can be used with multiple clients with the same domain. It provides multiple connectivity options which makes it a versatile option for reporting.

    The interface is similar to other SQL query systems I've used and is fairly easy to use. My only complaint is the syntax issues. Another thing is that the error messages are not always the easiest thing to understand, especially when you incorporate temp tables. Some of that is to be expected with any new database.

    Overall, the support from Snowflake has been very good. Since we are one of the major users for Snowflake and have a dedicated tech team to solve all the technical problem on our way. On the side of the technical problem, any sql related questions can be found from everywhere online.

    All of the other reporting platforms my organization has used previously were within our CRM and not a standalone program. In that we were very limited in being able to slice and dice the data the way that we wanted to
    Megan Sullivan | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Snowflake

    In my experience running the data management practice at InterWorks, we believe that cloud data warehouse products will eventually serve the majority of data warehousing use cases and power data analytics at most companies. Of this cohort, we believe that Snowflake is the best among them for most customers. It's easier to manage, in many cases faster, and in almost all cases it is less expensive because of the ability to automatically resume and suspend depending on usage.

    Return on Investment

    • Latest technology in market.
    • Full eco system provided under on roof.

    Lakhan Suri | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Snowflake

    • Faster data retrieval makes real time analysis possible.
    • Option to create multiple warehouses enable us to track usages and cost by departments.
    • Option to scale up/down computational warehouse to support peak hours and month end loads makes Snowflake cost effective.
    • Zero-copy cloning reduces storage and deployment cost.
    • Multiple users can access the same amount of data without deadlocks which is a common scenario in relational databases.
