Data Workloads with Snowflake and DBT

Snowflake is a data warehouse provided as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that is faster, easier to use, and far more flexible than traditional data warehouse offerings. Snowflake’s data warehouse is built using a new SQL database engine with a unique architecture designed for the cloud. While Snowflake provides an unmatched cloud data warehousing experience with a multi-cluster, shared data architecture that separates storage from compute, DBT (Data Build Tool) is an open-source tool with a game-changing approach to managing ELT workloads (orchestration and management of processing pipelines). DBT provides a unique level of DataOps functionality that enables Snowflake to do what it does well while abstracting the underlying layers that provide this support.
