Snowflake Usage Analytics
The most popular analytics offering in DataLakeHouse allows the viewing of comprehensive Snowflake costs
Snowflake cost calculators surface usage and costs, available to the account administrator role under the Account > Billing & Usage tab. These insights are largely presented as data, not as historical trends. As a result, this excludes in-depth analysis of the various parameters that affect usage and costs, and levers you can pull to control them.
Rest assured, Snowflake does a good job of making the usage statistics and costs easily visible via their standard interface. However, some organizations may need more detail: IT Infrastructure leads and business sponsors of initiatives that leverage Snowflake to achieve important business outcomes would need to review usage statistics and costs on a more frequent basis.
Data analytics tools provide deeper insight on Snowflake costs and usage. This is where DataLakeHouse.io comes into play. Prior to Installing
