What is a Snowflake process?

Snowflake process (in Atlan) = Snowflake transformation

Data processing in a warehouse involves a combination of these three processes:

  • Extract (from source)
  • Load (to warehouse)
  • Transformation (of the data between source format and a consolidated format in the warehouse)

Whether run through a Python script, directly from Snowflake’s UI, or via third-party programs like Matillion, these transformations occur within Snowflake through SQL. Regardless of what ran this transformation SQL, a Snowflake process in Atlan captures the transformation logic for use in lineage.
