Snowflake has automated a huge number of the mundane DBA-type tasks. It automatically manages disk storage, compute sizing, hardware maintenance, upgrades, and more. But the role has changed instead of going away completely. Snowflake DataOps engineers still do some operations and support, but much like the DevOps shift in the past, their role now is also about enabling the organization through automation and best practices.

No, the platform services team is going to be working on your entire data platform. The broader data platform can include many other complementary tools used in conjunction with Snowflake. This includes tools like Airflow (scheduling), Fivetran (ingest), DBT (transformations), Dataiku, or DataRobot (ML), and DataFactory (pipelining). When possible, these tools should be provisioned using infrastructure-as-code to ensure consistency.

Not always. Some weeks you’ll have enough work for multiple full-time staff.  Some weeks you won’t have any work for full time staff. That’s why we like a resourcing model that allows you to expand and contract on an hourly basis. In other words, we provide elastic personnel.
