Data Management with Snowflake Data Superheroes, Sanjay Kattimani & Randy Pitcher
Recently, Randy Pitcher (Hashmap Regional Technical Expert) sat down with Sanjay Kattimani, a solutions architect and Snowflake Data Superhero to discuss Data Management and Snowflake. They started off by discussing the impact of the Agile approach, how Sanjay got involved in data management and how current tools like Snowflake are simplifying data science to free up time to focus on analytics over issues.
“What I have seen customers getting most excited about is mainly the compute power. Literally, there is no other tool that scales the compute power so fast and so efficiently with so much flexibility,” Sanjay shared.
Pitcher and Kattimani also discussed Snowflake’s impressive real-time, on-the-fly data sharing and data masking capabilities and how they result in an elegant, simplified solution. Randy said, “It’s better, it’s faster, it’s cheaper. It’s hard to get all of those benefits in one single change, right? To adopt a new technology.”
