Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Jana's Data Warehousing Story: Then vs. Now

Jana's mission is to bring internet access to over a billion people in emerging markets via mobile applications. Already driving more than 3.8 billion MB of app usage, Jana needed a scalable and cost-effective solution to process and analyze that data.

Snowflake and AWS are helping Jana keep up with the demands of processing and analyzing that rapidly growing stream of data. Using Amazon S3 and the Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse, Jana processes and analyzes app usage data in a high-performance, scalable way without the cost and complexity of other solutions.

Join us to learn:

- How Jana made the transition from MySQL to a cloud data warehouse
- The data pipeline that Jana designed to move data from source to analysts
- The benefits Jana realized as a result of moving to a cloud infrastructure and data warehouse

Who should attend?

Data scientists, analysts, and anyone who needs to understand how to make critical data rapidly available - without capital expenditures.

  • Demystifying Elastic Data Warehousing: Featuring TDWI and Snowflake Recorded: May 26 2016 62 mins
    Philip Russom, TDWI Research Director
    In recent years, some users have harbored concerns about clouds in general, as well as their use in data warehousing. As the number of user organizations practicing elastic data warehousing on clouds has increased, the track record of success has helped other users get past perceptual barriers and other myths concerning security, multi-tenancy, and interfacing with clouds.

    We all know that data warehouses and users’ best practices for them are changing dramatically today. As users build new data warehouses and modernize established ones, they are turning to cloud-based elastic data warehousing, because the automation of elasticity yields agility, ease of use, scalability, and performance, while reducing maintenance, tuning, capital investments, and other costs.

    This webinar will:

    - Demystify elastic data warehousing by debunking myths about it

    - Define elastic data warehousing and its goals in terms that data management professionals and business users can relate to

    - Show how cloud-based data-driven tools and platforms have proved themselves, such that users are now more comfortable adopting them

    - Discuss the real-world benefits of data warehousing, data management, and analytics on elastic clouds

    - Explain how data warehousing solutions built to leverage the full capabilities of an elastic cloud can satisfy new requirements for analytics, big data, data streams, and multi-structured data
  • Big Data Projects in the Cloud: Choosing the Right Way to Get Started Recorded: May 18 2016 62 mins
    Brian Hopkins, Principal Analyst with Forrester Research
    Join Brian Hopkins, Principal Analyst with Forrester Research for a live presentation featuring use cases illustrating how to prioritize big data investments and cloud technology. He’ll discuss how the cloud is changing best practices while creating new opportunities.

  • Using the Cloud for Speed-of-Thought Analytics on All Your Data Recorded: Apr 28 2016 64 mins
    Snowflake Computing, Ask.com, Tableau
    1.5 TB of data per day? No problem! Learn how Ask.com turned to Snowflake’s cloud-native data warehouse combined with Tableau’s data visualization solution to address their challenges.

    Ask.com and its parent family of premium websites operate in an extremely competitive environment. To stand out in the crowd, the huge amounts of data generated by these websites needs to be analyzed to understand and monetize a wide variety of site traffic.

    Their challenges:
    Ask.com’s previous solution of Hadoop + a traditional data warehouse was limiting their analysts’ ability to bring together and analyze their data.
    - Significant amounts of custom processing to bring together data
    - Performance issues for data users due to concurrency and contention challenges
    - Several hours to incorporate new data into analytics.

    Join Ask.com, Snowflake Computing, and Tableau for an informative webinar where you’ll learn:
    - How Ask.com simplified their data infrastructure by eliminating the need for Hadoop + a traditional data warehouse
    - Why Ask.com’s analysts are able to explore and analyze data without the frustration of poor, inconsistent performance
