Data storage and processing is the heartbeat of business intelligence.

From cloud capabilities to real-time computing, SME partners with applications that have the computational power to work with terabytes, even petabytes of data. 


Technology Trends

While the concept of data as an asset may not be new, up until now it has been difficult to make a reality. Recent changes in technology, however, are changing the way we work with data, making it easier for us to change it into an actionable asset for the business.

Trend Led Impacts​

Taking complete advantage of data requires a new approach that will yield a number of meaningful business benefits.

​When leading companies take complete advantage of data, they can drive significant impact to how they operate and compete in the market..

Traditional platforms focus on managing the infrastructure, not the data

Whether they are on-premises, or cloud solutions ported from legacy on-premises technology, in all likelihood, your team is spending a disproportionate amount of time dealing with low value tasks. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ 

Across all of these areas (infrastructure, physical design, query tuning, availability & maintenance) lies an endless number of parameters to set and “knobs to turn”. Time spent doing that is time not doing what your company needs: actually working with data!

Traditional Data Sharing

​In the current state, to collaborate on data, you had to move it across environments. You would grab files from FTP servers, scrape APIs, use ETL tools, or setup different data marts to grant teams access to data. These data pipelines were costly and time-consuming to build and maintain. It was not secure, because once data moved, it was out of your control. And data was delayed by design.

Improved Data Sharing

​In the future state, with Snowflake’s secure data sharing, multiple consumers can be granted access to a single copy of the data. There’s no copying, or moving data, and no delays. 

This results in the following business outcomes: faster, more efficient data pipelines, quicker insights, and tighter collaboration and more integrated business processes with other BUs, partners, suppliers or customers.
