The result is a system that allows for saving query history, ease of applying multi-factor authentication, and (believe it or not) one-minute configuration.

Today’s overload of daily data would shred the concept of a static box for input on information and configuring systems. Snowflake offers an approach that focuses on efficiently handling metadata in a creative architecture.

Much ballyhooed hybrid computing for federal systems could lead to a congested network. Mobilizing data from inside and outside the federal government needs an original multi-cloud strategy.

Speece gave examples of how Snowflake has broken down information silos and allowed for effective data storage, processing, and consumption.
