Uli Bethke Snowflake

Don't miss the Data for Breakfast event at The Davenport Hotel on 24th of March. Solve your most frustrating Data challenges with expert advice. This is a free event so invite everyone who would benefit from this event.


To stay competitive in today’s world, organisations must remove the barriers that prevent them from instantly accessing and sharing insights from all their data. Join Snowflake and Sonra for a free, half-day event to learn about the latest advancements in cloud data analytics. Industry experts will reveal how a single, integrated cloud data platform can deliver the performance and concurrency for all your workloads, including data integrations and secure and governed access to all your data, at scale.


Snowflake is an analytic data warehouse provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Snowflake provides a data warehouse that is faster, easier to use, and far more flexible than traditional data warehouse offerings.


Sonra has been one of the first Snowflake partners in EMEA. We have implemented Snowflake projects in Ireland, the US, Germany, and South Africa. Our engineers are Snowflake certified and trained on the Data Vault 2.0 data warehouse methodology. We also provide a data warehouse automation solution for complex industry data standards such as HL7, FpML, ISO 20022, ACORD etc.
