Use Case | Demonstration

In demonstrating our data transformation with snowflake alongside CRM Analytics for HealthCare clients, we strategically utilize Snowflake as a robust data management and storage solution that seamlessly integrates with Salesforce CRM Analytics. Our team comprises qualified Snowflake engineers who collaborate closely with Business Analysts to ensure a smooth integration of both solutions. Data transformation in snowflake involves managing data cleansing processes and ensuring that data formats align with the requirements of the CRM-A Dashboard, accommodating a large volume of data.

The deployment process involves transforming raw data into data marts, establishing key performance indicators (KPIs), and presenting the insights on a user-friendly Dashboard UI. Snowflake plays a crucial role in facilitating the flow of data from raw sources to specific data marts. The platform offers various methods to manage this data flow, addressing key aspects such as Account management, Data sensitivity, Data security, Error Management, and Data monitoring.

Transformation techniques provided by Snowflake is Snowpipe, enabling continuous data ingestion by loading "raw" data into staging tables and subsequently applying complex transformations. Snowflake boasts features that support continuous data pipelines, encompassing continuous data loading, change data tracking, and recurring task management. These capabilities automate the steps involved in transforming and optimizing continuous data, establishing Snowflake as an integral component of the data pipeline within the platform.
