Can you please share few real time used cases with Snowflake cloud data

npackJan 07 01:54

Snowflake claims they do support real time ingestion of streaming data. I am not familiar with any real time consumption use cases, like running a web api. IMO Snowflake is more of a analytics system and less of a transactional system

Does it required any prior DWH experience like informatica or datastage. i dont have both. i have experience on SQL and knowledge on DWH> how is the job scope in india.

Since you already have SQL Background, I would say you are one step ahead. Its very easy to learn and pickup Snowflake. Not to mention Snowflake is growing huge, Its gaining popularity and has acquired lots of new customers.

Tips on creating Stored Procedures can help !

@Rhea7 Sure, The problem is writing stored procedures in Java or python. I wish they come up with SQL support. The plan is cover basic topics like ddl, dml, dcl operations first, followed by advanced topics

thanks Naveen for this introduction. We are on SSIS/Cognos reporing stack till date and building the entire system in Attunity/Snowflake/PowerBI stack on Microsoft Azure.

these videos gave the introduction and as you mentioned above it will be great if you can give a pointer for advanced topics like stored procs or any other entities we can use in Snowflake.
