How Petrol maintains competitive advantage with innovative analytical solutions?


Snowflake customer Petrol is a sustainable energy company that trades in oil derivatives, gas, and other energy products. Today, Petrol’s retail network comprises 500 modern service stations and the company has more than 5,000 employees.

The company knew it needed to access more data, store it in a single centralized location, and have the power to access and analyze that data in near real time, so they chose Snowflake.

To maintain their position in such a competitive and quickly changing marketplace, Petrol needed to leverage data to serve its customers better. Specifically, they needed to eliminate restrictions on data, storage, and compute to provide instant access to comprehensive business analytics.

Our data warehouse is able to instantly scale and provide fast & unlimited data access for all users. Snowflake automatically scales to support any amount of data, any number of workloads, and concurrent users and applications without requiring data movement, data marts, or data copies.

According to Petrol’s Data Warehouse Architect, Amir Komic, since the implementation of Snowflake, tuning is no longer required for about 98% of queries and manual indexing has been fully eliminated. Full case study here.
