some context

Why Use a Data Governance Tool with Snowflake?

Like most database services, Snowflake itself can’t provide much help finding your way with particular business matters. Answers to common questions exist somewhere in your data set, but where do you even begin to look for them?

  • Where can I find detailed information about my clients?
  • How fresh is the data displayed in the table I’m looking at?
  • What does the “gross margin” column refer to? How is it calculated ?
  • How are the “client” and “bill” tables related to each other?
  • How can I check how fast my database is growing?

Information like this can’t often be found easily in Snowflake, and that’s where a data governance tool comes in place. Data catalogs and data governance tools give users the ability to dive deeper than using Snowflake alone.
