  • Snowflake is a highly complex data platform, with many features and capabilities. Building a custom GUI requires a team with specialized expertise in data warehousing, UI development, and security, which can be difficult to assemble and maintain.

  • A custom GUI must be integrated with Snowflake's APIs and data storage systems, which can be complex and difficult to navigate. Appsmith’s native integration with Snowflake solved this for you out of the box.

  • Ensuring the security of sensitive data is critical when building a custom GUI, and this can be a challenge given the complexities of the Snowflake platform.

  • Custom GUIs must be designed to handle large amounts of data and support fast query performance, which can be a challenge.

  • As a company's data needs grow, a custom GUI must be able to scale to accommodate the increased data volume and complexity.

  • Custom GUIs require ongoing maintenance and updates to ensure compatibility with new releases of the Snowflake platform and to address security vulnerabilities as they arise.
