What is most valuable?

In our economic situation, the price is really the most important consideration. It is not a pricey product compared to other data warehouse solutions like Oracle and similar products. It is less expensive, but it still achieves our goals and fulfills all our needs. So I think it is a comfortable… more »

What needs improvement?

I think that building better data protection and a business intelligence layer over the SQL would be great and improve the product. If they could make it more like what Oracle in that way it would be good. We have to take the time and resources to build our own business intelligence when other… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We do not have any external support contracts. All the features that we use do not require any additional subscription or yearly fees. We just only use features that we pay for on a one-time basis.

What other advice do I have?

For a small-sized company like ours, I really recommend this product. It can handle a big workload. I would say other products could not be better than Microsoft for small businesses with a lesser budget. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best. I would rate Microsoft… more »

Data & Analytics Practitioner at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The entire managed service operations for the solution is great. Snowflake does everything for us. Whatever version they have, they implement the latest for us; we don't have to worry about any versions, any upgrades, anything else because they handle it.

What needs improvement?

The solution should offer an on-premises version also. We have some requirements where we would prefer to use it as a template. The integration capabilities could be improved.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We're system integrators, so we use different solutions including SQL Server Data Warehouse and Greenplum as well as Snowflake at the moment. I've used many data warehouse solutions, including Hadoop, and Oracle SQL Server Data warehouses. I switched from those to Snowflake because Snowflake is on… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are system integrators, so for all our customers, we offer different solutions. We only use the cloud deployment model. Snowflake doesn't offer on-premises deployments. Snowflake on cloud is the best right now. There are only a few other options. Redshift is not scalable. With SQL Data Warehouse… more »

Practice Lead (BI/ Data Science) at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
Dec 16 2019

What is most valuable?

The solution is perfect for when you have big data. It's good for managing and replication. It's good for storing historical data and handling analytics on a huge amount of data.

What needs improvement?

It could be because the solution is open source, and therefore not funded like bigger companies, but we find the solution runs slow. The solution isn't as mature as SQL or Oracle and therefore lacks many features. The solution could use a better user interface. It needs a more effective GUI in order to create a better user environment.

What other advice do I have?

I've used the solution under cloud, hybrid and on-premises deployment models. I'd recommend the solution, but it depends on the company's requirements. If you don't have huge amounts of data, you probably don't need Hadoop. If you need a completely private environment, and you have lots of big data, consider Hadoop. You don't even need to invest in the infrastructure as you can just use a cloud… more »
