Tuesday, May 18, 2021, 8:00 – 9:15 PM UTC


About this event

Please join Snowflake’s upcoming virtual Carolinas User Group on May 18th at 4:00 p.m. This session will be the first of many meetings hosted by our local Customer Advisory Board (CAB), with members from Prisma Health, ACS Technologies, Epic Games, Truist and Ally Financial. Join us for the opportunity to meet our CAB members who are on a similar Data Cloud journey. During this session you'll hear from:

Sonny Rivera, Director of Data Delivery at Ally Financial, who will take us through how he used Snowflake, data sharing, and IoT to master his BBQ technique. He will also share the implications of this project, and his strategy and process when he embarks on any data delivery mission. 

Teddy Lewis, Head of Data Cloud Strategy at Snowflake, on the future roadmap for the second half of 2021.

The Carolinas CAB members for an open discussion.

Following the presentations, attendees will have a chance to ask questions, and share feedback for future meetings.
