How leveraging data can help you enhance cloud performance and value

Though cloud adoption is rising, some enterprises aren’t seeing their desired cloud value and performance - but the problems aren’t insurmountable. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Snowflake’s Jeff Hollan about how companies can improve their cloud operations and gain more ROI from cloud by leveraging their data effectively and utilizing a data cloud. Improved data strategy and governance, low data latency, collaboration, and giving developers the support they need are also imperative.


Organizations who are successful in their data strategies...put data and data strategy as something they think about ahead of time rather than just being reactive.

Jeff Hollan is the Director of Product for Snowflake, leading the developer platform and ecosystem team. Previously he was director at Microsoft running the Serverless and PaaS business. He's also a co-creator and current maintainer of the Kubernetes KEDA project.
