Overall Satisfaction with Snowflake

Snowflake is being used across all departments of the company. It's our main data warehouse and system of record for sales, inventory and other metrics of the company. Snowflake helps us address different business questions from executives and help them make decisions based on the different metrics being analyzed.
  • Snowflake computes really fast and can handle high volumes of data with ease.
  • Snowflake has some features that have really helped DBAs and developers particularly with Time Travel, it has help us with many processes in our company where we had to rollback or re-apply sweep processes which would be time consuming.
  • Snowflake has forced ETL developers to write better code (forcing ANSI standards) and avoided implicit conversions in specific data-types for different subject areas.
  • Loading processes have improved. Prior to Snowflake, some ETL processes would take double the time to execute. With Snowflake those same processes finish in half the time.
  • Integration with other tools, particularly with connectivity. We have observed metadata callbacks being generated which are time consuming and annoying. These can be avoided but extra work is required.
  • Out of the box tools could be better. Specifically the querying tool is lacking a few features that other software offer for easy of use for users and developers.
  • Not really a Con, but in Snowflake there's no concept for Indexes, maybe because they are not required but we have seen particular cases where we believe an index would help speed some of the queries being executed.
  • We are told that overall cost of Snowflake based on usability is really good.
  • Space and computing being separate makes a great difference in cost when comparing to other software.
  • Speed of developing. ETL code and coding in general is simple and fast once basic knowledge is great
  • Saving on processes that Snowflake can automatically handle out of the box like Time Travel.
- Cost was the main aspect on the decision.
- Performance was in par or better compared to other tools in the market.
- Snowflake in my opinion stacks better than other tools I have used in the past.
