Gordon Wong
Cloud Data Warehouse
Leading organizations through analytics transformations, preference for social missions, healthcare, energy, education, and civic engagement
Gordon has three decades of experience working with data and specializes in strategic and tactical consulting in building data teams and cloud based data warehouses, especially on Snowflake Data Cloud.
I've seen the power data modeling in both effective development and unlocking user understanding over and over. Many times I've shared an "aha!" moment with business users as we scrawled a model on a white board. And yet, data modeling has remaining a distressing abstract and inaccessible discipline for most. I believe that was primarily the fault of difficult to use tools, steep learning curves and a lack of integration between modeling and the real world. I think SqlDBM has the potential to break down barriers on all three fronts, dramatically improving data literacy.
