A modern data infrastructure is essential for retailers looking to stay competitive today. Companies are abandoning more traditional, on-premises IT infrastructures and moving to more centralized “as a service” (XaaS) models of delivery enabled by cloud technologies, according to McKinsey. Aging on-premises infrastructures are unable to meet demands for agility and innovation, eating up too much time and too many resources for teams trying to maintain them.  Cloud-based infrastructures let you store and share unlimited amounts of data at a low cost, unrestricted by data silos or formats ..read more

Asset servicing workflows are an area of the financial system that Snowflake financial expert Samuel Lee called “ripe for disruption,” explaining that it involves “a ton of data, multiple different actors, and a lot of computation requirements!” “I’m always confident that we can bring a bit of poetry into our financial world,” said Laurent Moscetti, Financial Services Consulting Service Line Leader for EY. “Whatever you do, it is important to realize in the financial world, asset servicing is just one among many moving parts, of balance, meter, melody, and harmony.

Address Organizational Issues When Weaving the Data Mesh
Snowflake Blog
by Jennifer Belissent
2d ago
We’ve all experienced the frustration of a bottleneck, like when in line for a chairlift at a ski resort. During the winter holidays, thrill seekers often face an infuriating wait for their ride up the mountain. Some seek new methods to get to the top, hence the rise of ski touring or “uphill skiing.” The mantra is “earn your turns.”   Now think of the growing demand for data and insights. Traditionally, organizations relied on central data teams, often residing within IT, to build data pipelines and deliver data—or even central analytics teams to deliver the insights themselves.

How Implementing a Data Catalog Optimizes Your Snowflake Data Cloud Migration
Snowflake Blog
by Juan Sequeda
6d ago
During a cloud migration to Snowflake’s Data Cloud, businesses often struggle to know what data they have on premises, what they should migrate, and in what order. And because of this, many organizations fall into a “lift and shift” approach, where everything is simply copied over—as it messily stands—to the cloud.  This is a less-than-desirable outcome, as your organization is simply moving technical debt from one place to another, kicking the can down the road until it becomes someone else’s problem. Or worse, until minor technical annoyances become major problems, and their fixes steal ..read more

Snowflake Blog
by Harsha KapreCarl Perry

Being able to share and collaborate with 1st party data securely is a baseline requirement for modern enterprise data analytics. But many organizations need to go a step further, collaborating on data with their partners while also strictly controlling who can see that information to ensure compliance with regulatory, privacy, security and other requirements. This reality has fueled the rise of data clean rooms, which enable multiple companies, or divisions of a single company, to combine or share data for joint analysis while maintaining user-defined restrictions that keep data sovereign, pri ..read more
