WeDoTech Limited is very excited to be a Bronze sponsor of the upcoming ITWeb BI and Analytics Summit that is being held on the 12th and 13th of March 2019 in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
WeDoTech will be showcasing the latest stars in the Analytics software arena: Snowflake; Fivetran; and Looker. WeDoTech's core focus is on providing customers with smart, modern solutions, and from an analytics perspective we feel that Snowflake, Fivetran and Looker fit in perfectly with this philosophy.
Snowflake is a high-performing, cost-effective cloud data warehouse that is built for the cloud. It runs on either AWS or Azure and is acquiring customers at a rapid pace. With its pay-per-usage model, customers do not have to make a large upfront investment, costs are dependent on the amount of value that is realised from the solution.
Fivetran is an easy-to-use, data pipeline technology which allows users to load data into their cloud data warehouse. Configuration takes a matter of minutes, from there the schema is automatically created, and data is automatically loaded. Fivetran has a huge selection of available connectors, allowing companies to bring their data into a central repository with ease. A recent case study on the Durban-based company the Ignition Group, estimated that the company will save R6-million thanks to the implementation of Fivetran and Snowflake. The technology has reduced the timeframe of data science initiatives from 2 - 3 months, down to 2 - 3 weeks.
Last but not least, Looker is a data platform on steroids. It delivers the great visualisations that are expected in this day and age, and on top of that enables companies to embed analytics throughout all its applications with ease (including third-party applications such as Slack). Looker offers an excellent data governance semantic layer that ensures a single source of truth, and maximises the power of Snowflake by pushing queries down onto the database itself. All of the source code is stored securely in a git repository, making version control easy. Looker also comes with popular pre-built data models that are available for download, saving companies time and effort to deliver insights to the business users.
