As someone who’s always on the lookout for efficient and innovative data solutions, you’ve likely heard of Snowflake and ServiceNow. But what if I told you that getting business insights from ServiceNow in Snowflake has never been easier? I’m John Harmann from Evolution Analytics, and I want to share some exciting insights into how Snowflake’s native connector can transform your ServiceNow data extraction process, setting aside the need for ETL tools or additional software like SnowMirror.

First-Mover Advantage with Evolution Analytics

First off, Snowflake’s native connector for ServiceNow is a breakthrough development. It’s designed to seamlessly pull your ServiceNow data directly into Snowflake. This functionality is not just about eliminating extra tools; it’s about streamlining and simplifying your data workflow. While this connector is currently in public preview, we at Evolution Analytics are at the forefront of this innovation. Our team has unique, first-mover experience with this tool, and we’re excited to participate in a joint webinar on March 26, 2024, with Snowflake and Ensono to showcase its capabilities.

Customizing for Efficiency and Usability

But we didn’t stop there. The Snowflake Connector works great to quickly get ServiceNow data loaded into Snowflake, but our team has put considerable effort into customizing and extending the Snowflake Connector to meet our specific requirements such as custom objects to rename columns, adding additional fields, and automating the refresh of downstream objects. We’ve expanded it into a valuable turnkey solution for customers looking to migrate from SnowMirror.

Beyond Data Extraction

Beyond mere data extraction, we’ve enriched this data, joined it with other key data sets, and shared it back around the organization. We’ve also built custom analytics to drive business value. The overall process ensures that you get the most out of your data with minimal effort.
