Watch this Tech Talk to learn how the combination of AtScale’s Semantic Layer and Snowflake eliminates data marts like SSAS for native dimensional analysis in the Data Cloud without extracts or pre-aggregation of data.

Now available on-demand!

AtScale and Snowflake have been working together for years to enable customers the ability to model and provide a semantic layer over data in Snowflake for dimensional analysis. 

In this session, we will provide an overview of how to use AtScale + Snowflake to eliminate data marts like Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services OLAP cubes and run those workloads natively in the Data Cloud.
