We’re looking forward to a lively discussion on the possibilities created by new approaches in data warehousing and analytics – Jon Bock, VP of products and marketing, Snowflake Computing

On Friday, October 16, 2015, Snowflake Computing’s CEO, Bob Muglia, CTO, Benoit Dageville, and VP of products and marketing, Jon Bock, will brief BBBT on the Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse, a completely new data warehouse built from the cloud up for today’s data and analytics.

Starting with its unique new architecture, Snowflake will describe how its solution delivers a data warehouse as a service that can scale data, workloads and users on-the-fly without contention; natively handle both semi-structured and structured data without compromising performance or flexibility; and do so at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

“Snowflake was founded with an audacious vision—reinventing the data warehouse from the cloud up,” said Mr. Bock. “We’re looking forward to a lively discussion on the possibilities created by new approaches in data warehousing and analytics.”

“Sometimes you just have to start from scratch. That was the conclusion Snowflake came to with their data warehouse-as-a-service offering,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “We have seen a dramatic uptick in the acceptance of cloud-based architectures, so having one for the data warehouse makes complete sense. This is especially true given the unpredictable storage needs of most data warehouse implementations.”

A podcast summarizing the presentation will be available at the BBBT podcasts page and a video of the presentation will be available at the BBBT videos page.
