Your Trifecta Solution for Starting a Data-Driven Analytics Journey in the Cloud

As businesses strive to become modern data-driven organizations, many are drawn to the value that a data platform in the cloud can provide. Cloud data platforms provide the speed, performance and scalability that is required to handle an exponential growth in volume of data. Whether on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, or all three, you need a data and analytics platform that can take full advantage of the power and economics of the cloud.

But before you can reap the benefits and ROI of a cloud data platform and an AI-driven analytics solution, you need to get your data there. Businesses moving to a cloud data platform today face the challenge of how to best extract and transform their data for their analytical needs.

That is why we provide Matillion, Snowflake and ThoughtSpot consulting and professional services as one of our proven solution bundles for those moving to the cloud.

Snowflake has been optimized for speed and performance by separating compute and storage. This gives you the flexibility to scale your cloud data platform to meet peak loads, and then scale back down for fast and affordable data queries. Matillion ETL for Snowflake has best practices baked-in, along with additional warehouse-specific functionality, so you get the most out of Snowflake. Adding ThoughtSpot to the mix enables you to easily search and explore your data, while also getting helpful, automated insights. Designed to be simple enough for non-techies to use, ThoughtSpot can help free your data analysts from projects that individual users can now perform themselves.

Transform data points into data insights

Matillion ETL for Snowflake is built to work with your cloud data platform and makes analytics easier for everyone with ThoughtSpot.

Along your cloud journey, it’s not just about migrating to Snowflake, but using the power of the cloud to consolidate and transform your data sources—allowing you to make better, more informed decisions, and to gain a competitive advantage.

Matillion ETL instructs Snowflake to transform your data, leveraging the power, speed and scalability of the cloud. Snowflake and ThoughtSpot bring together the power of search and AI-driven analytics to wherever your data resides. Using the three together, you can:
