There is a little bit of a learning curve to get the hang of it. But on the surface it is just like any other SQL language and you just have to figure out the different quirks that it has. I wish it could give data instantaneously and read my mind on what I want but that is pretty much impossible so I’m going to stick with what I have.
Snowflake’s Worksheets interface is easy for SQL novices to figure out because it’s simple and straightforward, which is exactly the opposite of many competitors. On other platforms, novices are easily intimidated because of the complexity, but Snowflake does a great job of keeping it simple and clean. Their documentation is also good, but it’s not as novice-friendly as I would like.
The overall ecosystem was easy to manage. Given that we weren’t a very highly technical group, it was preferable to other things we looked at because it could do all of the cloud tunings. It can tune your data warehouse to an appropriate size for controlled billing, resume and sleep functions, and all such things. It was much more simple than doing native Azure or AWS development. It was stable, and their support was also perfect.
It is a helpful tool, it’s breathtaking for important tasks, despite having cloning and information sharing features, it functions optimally without a good deal of effort, despite an excellent query efficiency, it’s quick despite having many combinations, along with a web user interface that is stable.
Snowflake gives you the opportunity to start small and grow quickly, while not overspending up front. It has completely transformed our ability to deliver analysis of large data sets. The product is continuously improving. We are able to use many different tools to interface with Snowflake and have yet to run into a challenge we could not address.
