Snowflake Managed Pipelines

24×7 data pipeline monitoring and support, for higher accuracy at a lower cost.
Running analytics on traditional platforms and data warehouses is computationally taxing and costly, especially at scale. As your underlying data sources evolve, pipelines require careful monitoring — even when designed to account for shifting schemas — to detect and swiftly remediate problems before they fail or, worse yet, yield bad data that lead to misguided business decisions. Snowflake Managed Pipelines brings peace of mind around the accuracy and sustainability of your businesses-critical data products. As the leading pure-play provider of managed pipeline services for Snowflake workloads, we deliver 24×7 monitoring, management, and administration for your data pipelines and applications, with a focus on driving down cost and delivering the best user experience possible.

Better data quality at a lower cost

Our team is on your side day and night, using proprietary tools and automation plus good old-fashioned care and vigilance to maintain the health, stability and accuracy of your data pipelines.

Pipeline stability, visibility,
and confidence

All it takes is missing a single schema update or tiny detail in a script for pipelines to fail or deliver inaccurate results. Our experts are here 24x7 to monitor and maintain data pipelines, using automation with Snowflake best practices built-in. We identify, diagnose, and resolve pipeline hiccups, allowing your enterprise to understand which pipelines are problematic, and operate with confidence when all vital signs are healthy.

Cloud efficiencies, made
a reality

We’ve invested in a range of proprietary software and tooling to make Snowflake even more efficient — automating processes such as transforming workloads for the cloud with phData SQLMorph, securing and provisioning users and workspaces with phData Tram, and building your cloud infrastructure and security with confidence via phData Cloud Foundation.

Supercharge the Enterprise with
familiar tools

Migrating platforms can cause enterprise friction since it requires teams to learn new tools and shift existing business processes to accommodate the change. Snowflake provides the connectivity, and phData brings the integration, stability, and confidence to deliver enterprise results. Whether its business intelligence, visualization, ETL, or CDC tools, phData has you covered at a low rate — helping ensure your enterprise continues delivering value.

Faster, more cost-effective
support

Reduce analytics cost by moving to a cloud native platform and putting our Snowflake pros to work. By using our leaner, more specialized and experienced team — as well as our proprietary software and automation — our customers typically save 20-35 percent on their pipeline support costs.

Why phData for Managed Pipelines on Snowflake?

Expert guidance

A good data pipeline functions like the plumbing in your house: quietly, reliably, and in the background. But as with plumbing, you’ll want on-call professionals who can perform repairs in the event of a leak.

Our experts work around the clock to monitor and maintain data pipelines to help ensure your business-critical data is there when you need it, at the level of quality that you expect. Driven by proactive alerting, weekly account synchronization, and continues learning to fit your business needs.

Pipeline confidence

Enterprise pipelines consist of everything from batch to streaming and structured to unstructured data sets. Landing on best practices and tools required to support each iteration of these pipelines introduces significant risk — leading to increased time, increased cost, prolonged incident response times, and root cause analysis that varies for each pipeline.

phData has extensive experience supporting and managing business critical applications on a 24×7 basis. In addition, phData is the key to unlocking critical future pipeline development by defining what elements a successful pipeline should implement and which best practices to follow. This leads to greater confidence in the development process and delivers higher quality results in the output.

Vigilance around security

In the world of data security, little mistakes can cause massive damage. Too many data teams rely on highly manual processes while lacking engineering experience or familiarity with the technologies they’re using — which is exactly how someone accidentally creates an over-permissive role or makes an Object Storage bucket public.

At phData, we understand enterprise security required to support ingestion, transformation, and reporting on all things Snowflake. Our security and governance processes, frameworks, and automation are used by the world’s largest companies to safeguard both their data and their brands — with controlled and defined processes for users, applications, and workspaces. And phData Tram covers the tooling you need, fully adhering to enterprise-tested standards and best practices.
