To start its expansion in the Philippines, data cloud company Snowflake by providing its services to digital solutions provider Globe.
Globe, through its Enterprise Data Office, has embarked on a data modernization program to leverage the power of the cloud for high performance, resiliency, and speed. Working closely with Snowflake’s Professional Services Team, Globe has already migrated its enterprise data warehouse from on-premises to Snowflake’s Data Cloud in 53 days.
Through Snowflake’s unified platform and user-friendly interface, Globe gained near-unlimited and highly scalable storage and compute power, as well as near real-time data insights. At the same time, Snowflake’s cloud-native platform facilitated Globe’s migration to a public cloud architecture enabling a 50% rise in annual cost savings.
“Data democratization is data at your fingertips — the ability to access, use, and explore data on your own,” said Dan Natindim, VP, Enterprise Data Office, Globe. “We want to make decision-making powered by data possible to as many job functions in the least possible time with the least dependency from others,”
Snowflake’s platform enables the Data Cloud: the near-unlimited scale and efficiency of a multi-cluster shared data architecture; the seamless interoperability of working with data across multiple public clouds as if they were one; baked-in security features that can’t be turned off; and modern data sharing, which allows virtually any number of organizations to share and receive live data with each other near- instantly and without having to move or copy data.
“Users and executives always want to get deeper into data and have more questions. We now have user groups able to explore, wrangle, and analyze data directly in Snowflake, like never before to answer their own questions,” Natindim said.
