How Blackstone Accelerates Decisions with a Common Analytics Language
Self-Service Analytics with Blackstone, Snowflake, and Sigma
In the financial services industry, the speed of data-driven decision-making can make the difference between massive profits and devastating losses.
From trading and investment analysis to regulatory compliance reporting, the financial services industry uses data to drive every aspect of day-to-day operations and decision-making. But the volume (and sensitivity) of the data these companies collect makes it difficult to manage efficiently using their analytics tool of choice: Excel.
Watch as speakers from Blackstone, Snowflake, and Sigma discuss the importance of making data analytics approachable to gain a competitive edge and accelerate business outcomes.
Attendees will learn:
- Why traditional spreadsheets weren’t built for the speed and scale required by the financial services industry
- How Snowflake and Sigma turn data access into a competitive advantage
- How Blackstone democratized data and reimagined the analytics workflow to grow its business
We are Sigma.
Sigma is a cloud-native analytics platform that uses a familiar spreadsheet interface to give business users instant access to explore and get insights from their cloud data warehouse. It requires no code or special training to explore billions of rows, augment with new data, or perform “what if” analysis on all data in real-time.
