SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

In recent studies, it was revealed that there was a huge amount of data resources and IT inventories wasted by our large organizations on a daily basis without being noticed by management. This issue needed to be addressed, and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud provides excellent data resource management to avoid such losses. This tool is recommended and very well suited for the organizations with high volume of IT and data resources, for better management.

Specific scenarios where Snowflake is very strong include analytical data processing scenarios. Snowflake is wonderful at inexpensively consolidating and storing data and allowing very fast access to that data while maintaining a low cost profile with it's ability to automatically resume and suspend virtual warehouses. Snowflake is less suited to transaction processing scenarios and isn't a best choice to back up an online order processing system.

Cons

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

  • Integration with other warehouse tools will be quite difficult.
  • Consumes more time to process when data volume increases.

Snowflake

  • Very limited amount of tabs - saved queries, which requires us to store the code somewhere else and re-use existing queries.
  • Performance can really be a problem if there are many users on the system at the same time.
  • SnowFlake support sometimes can be hard to reach.

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

Extensive documentation and several tutorial videos are available online which reduces learning and deployment time. User Interface is very intuitive and provide flexibility to create databases, schema, tables and assign permissions in a few clicks (no need to write SQL queries). SQL History helps to track usages and billing dashboard provide credit breakup per warehouse. Create views and write procedures in JavaScript for more complex data transformation requirement

Alternatives Considered

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

The last few years have been about moving most of our infra to the cloud. Our ERP, HR, Finance, Fleet, Analytics, and Procurement are now in the cloud.
  1. Data Warehouse was next in line to move to the cloud.
  2. SAP Data Warehouse features a modern user interface with easy to generate graphical data models, and generated views can be easily integrated into a storyboard.
  3. Similar to other SAP Cloud offerings, new features will be added automatically.

Snowflake

The average percentage of time that a data warehouse is actually doing something is around 20%. Given this, the price by query estimate becomes an important pricing consideration. For this, Snowflake crucially decouples of storage and compute. With Snowflake you pay for 1) storage space used and 2) amount of time spent querying data. Snowflake also has a notion of a “logical warehouse” which is the “compute” aspect of the database. These warehouses can be scaled up or down to deliver different grades of performance. You can also configure the number of compute nodes to parallelize query execution. These warehouses can be configured to “pause” when you’re not using them for cost efficiency. As a result, you can have a super beefy warehouse for BI queries that’s only running when people are using your BI tools, while your background batch jobs can use cheaper hardware.
