What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be the fact that it has been running for awhile in an appliance format. The appliance format may be the best part.

How has it helped my organization?

We're looking to get away from it, so I can't really say that it improved things. It did augment some of our product delivery resources.

What needs improvement?

There won't be another release. They're converting to DB2 and that is one of the reasons we are looking at other options. In terms of features that I would like to see, one is the ability to actually… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were able to implement the entire data eco-system in less than five months, from data integration, data warehousing, ELT, producing fact and dimensional tables, and finally reports.

What needs improvement?

* Snowpipe auto-ingest should be automatic. * A better client UI or command line tool: I think SnowSQL is a little awkward.

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

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes. I looked at Redshift and Vertica.
