What is most valuable?

Snowflake is the latest technology. It has great flexibility whenever we are loading data and performs ELT (extract, load, transform) techniques instead of ETL. This solution automatically performs micro-partitioning when the data is… more »

What needs improvement?

It is difficult in some cases to perform ETL and this is something that should be included. As it is now, I use Informatica PowerCenter to load data from on-premises to the Snowflake cloud-based data warehouse. If this could be done by… more »

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

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 »
