This is great news that many of us have been waiting for! Now we can have all our data in one place.
From Day 1, Snowflake has supported structured and semi-structured data. Snowflake has provided exceptional performance for those data types and has been a pioneer in processing them. Today, Snowflake is adding support for unstructured data to allow customers to deliver more use cases with a single platform. The support for unstructured data management includes built-in capabilities to store, access, process, manage, govern, and share unstructured data in Snowflake. Now you can get all the benefits of the Snowflake Data Cloud with performance, concurrency, and scale for unstructured data.
Since you are on this blog, I assume that means you are “following” me in that techie, non-stalker sort of way. 😉
That being the case you are aware of my tenure for the last 5+ years at the hottest data-focused software company in the world – Snowflake. And you know I have produced a lot of content (really – A LOT!). Everything from blogs to ebooks to videos to podcasts – in addition to my usual array of industry and Snowflake sponsored webinars and talks.
But if, like me, you have consumed so much content in the last year or so, you have probably lost track of some of it, right?
Well if you are trying to find something you saw me do (or tweet about doing) but just can’t remember what it was (or when or where) and you want to find it but don’t want to sift through the hundreds of Google search results or the thousands of social media posts I have done, look no further!
I decided to make it easier for you (and me frankly) by putting a pretty comprehensive list together on a permanent page here on my site.
I broke it up into videos/Podcasts, Thought Leader articles, ebooks, and blogs and have included links to all of these so you can quickly get to the content you need when you need it.
So check it out and bookmark the page now, before you forget or lose track of this post too. 🙂
It’s almost time! The annual Snowflake Summit is just a few weeks away.
Data is everywhere and it holds the keys to unlocking your organization’s success today and in the future. Attend Snowflake Summit and you’ll learn how to use the #DataCloud to unify, analyze, and share data previously out of your reach for more impact than you have ever imagined.
Data Together Now will inspire business and technical leaders, data scientists and engineers, data and analytics professionals, and application developers, to lead their organizations to a data-driven future, today. There is something for everyone in the organization.
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:
Healthcare and Life Sciences
Retail & CPG
Media, Entertainment, & Advertising
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.
Instead of having our annual in-person user event, Snowflake Summit, this year we are having a very exciting virtual event on June 2nd – #SayHellotoTheDataCloud. Join us live at 9 AM PDT, 11 AM CDT, 12PN EDT, 5 PM BST, 6 PM CEST for another Snowflake first!
You can be the first to hear from Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman, Snowflake co-founder Benoit Dageville, and Christian Kleinerman, Snowflake’s Senior VP of Product. They’ll detail how you can leverage the #DataCloud for all your data to acquire the deepest insights possible. You’ll also learn how Snowflake customers, data providers, and data service providers use Snowflake #CloudDataPlatform to seamlessly connect and collaborate with data.
What is #TheDataCloud?
#TheDataCloud is the next evolution for democratizing and governing access to data! It provides a central location for any organization to store all of its data inexpensively and as a single source of truth. It not only unites an organization’s data but it connects any two or more organizations that store their data in the Data Cloud. Enabling the Data Cloud is the Snowflake #CloudDataPlatform. This is the engine that drives the Data Cloud. With it, organizations can easily load their data onto the Data Cloud, and then securely integrate, analyze, share, and monetize their data.
Join Frank, Benoit, Christian, and other Snowflake leaders to:
Learn how Snowflake #CloudDataPlatform enables #TheDataCloud and how you can seamlessly store, unify, and analyze all your data.
Join the thousands of organizations that comprise #TheDataCloud to securely share and monetize your data globally, and acquire shared data and data services.
Hear how the latest innovations with Snowflake #CloudDataPlatform improve performance, governance, and analyst productivity.
Discover how to build fast and extensible pipelines for #DataScience, #DataWarehousing, #DataEngineering, and #DataApplications from a single platform.
Stay tuned because right after the presentations, you be part of the live Q&A session with Benoit and Christian. Ask how your organization will benefit from #TheDataCloud, and from the latest features available from Snowflake #CloudDataPlatform.
