Changing the world, one data model at a time. How can I help you?

Building a Real-time Data Vault in Snowflake?

Yes you can! The #DataCloud loves #DataVault!

In this day and age, with the ever-increasing availability and volume of data from many types of sources such as IoT, mobile devices, and weblogs, there is a growing need, and yes, demand, to go from batch load processes to streaming or “real-time” (RT) loading of data. Businesses are changing at an alarming rate and are becoming more competitive all the time. Those that can harness the value of their data faster to drive better business outcomes will be the ones to prevail.

One of the benefits of using the Data Vault 2.0 architecture is that it was designed from inception not only to accept data loaded using traditional batch mode (which was the prevailing mode in the early 2000s when Dan introduced Data Vault) but also to easily accept data loading in real or near-realtime (NRT). In the early 2000s, that was a nice-to-have aspect of the approach and meant the methodology was effectively future-proofed from that perspective. Still, few database systems had the capacity to support that kind of requirement. Today, RT or at least NRT loading is almost becoming a mandatory requirement for modern data platforms. Granted, not all loads or use cases need to be NRT, but most forward-thinking organizations need to onboard data for analytics in an NRT manner.

See all the details (and some code) in the full post over on Data Vault Alliance.

Happy Vaulting!

The Data Cloud Tour: Mobilize a World of Data

6 INDUSTRY EVENTS

4 REGIONS!

Most years I have been at Snowflake, we have done Data for Breakfast events all over the world to kick off a new year. But this year is different, so instead we are launching a virtual #DataCloud Tour! Join us to learn how the Data Cloud can power your data strategies and help you deliver innovative and industry-leading products and services.

In this tour we will actually run seven different events in each region – one for the generalist and then separate sessions for these industries:

  1. Healthcare and Life Sciences
  2. Financial Services
  3. Public Sector
  4. Retail & CPG
  5. Media, Entertainment, & Advertising
  6. Manufacturing

Each event will bring you industry SMEs talking about how the Data Cloud has helped them be data leaders and succeed in getting the more value from their data in the most cost effective manner. In the talks you will learn how to break down data silos with The Data Cloud and how you can put the Snowflake platform to work for your company.

The Data Cloud is a global network where thousands of organizations mobilize data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. Inside the Data Cloud, you can unite your siloed data, easily discover and securely share governed data, and execute diverse analytic workloads.

Snowflake and #NetZero: The Case for Data Decarbonisation (Part One)

I love the fact that Snowflake is getting involved in the betterment of our planet!

This is the first in a series of three posts from one of my colleagues examining the concept of net zero data and how advances in technology can help the world’s largest world’s largest organisations—especially those which are particularly emissions-intensive like oil and gas—reduce the carbon emissions footprint of their data.
