Make the most of your Snowflake investment can be just a few spectacular dashboards away

A cloud data warehouse is excellent, but without clear visibility into your usage and costs, it can be difficult to avoid anomalies or discover opportunities to increase storage and usage, control costs and improve performance.

With Snowflake, organizations can now easily analyze vast amounts of data and make better business-driven decisions. But once you have found Snowflake’s data warehouse and created your users and data sources, how can you monitor usage and tailor it to your needs? What kind of resources will it consume? How much storage will it require? What is the impact on your charges? These are the questions that are on the minds of every customer. Here comes the role of the reporting tool. We will take a closer look at how you can use reporting tools and dashboards like Power BI, Looker, Tableau, etc. to manage Snowflake naturally, efficiently and to its full potential. The upcoming online seminar “Save Costs by Monitoring Snowflake Cloud Use with Powerful Analytics” April 6, 2022, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. PST

And this is why you need data analysis tools:

While Snowflake Cloud Data Warehouse is a great solution for your data storage and analytics needs and provides the usage statistics and costs visible through their standard interface, many organizations may need more details to achieve important business results.

This is usually a climbing climb for most businesses to create reports and analyzes on internal cost and usage data. Data analysis tools provide in-depth insights into the costs and use of Snowflake. With just a few clicks or a simple keyboard shortcut combination, users can activate the data analysis tools that integrate with Snowflake.

Monitoring, data analysis and visualization with tools like Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Looker can provide you with almost real-time views of your consumption and utilization by data source, operating system disk type, workload and other dimensions. The out-of-the-box reports can be expanded to monitor more metrics and custom reports can be created to collect predefined metrics that are not available in the standard reports. Monitoring these tools can also provide you with insights into the most expensive queries, which source data are the slowest and most unused disks that can be used to cache queries.

You can track and identify possible cost-saving opportunities. For example, you can optimize table usage based on queries running in tables most often to minimize your overall costs. Many other cost analysis strategies can be easily implemented to create additional savings.

The most obvious benefit of using these powerful reporting tools for your business is that along with the ability to easily monitor additional costs incurred, you use and enable some functionality in your Snowflake Cloud infrastructure. You can then allocate additional resources to free up additional cash flow while minimizing the impact on the overall cloud supply schedules.
