Name: Manca Vitorino

Job Title: Director of Data Operations

Expertise: Helping organisations transform their data collection processes for more efficient data analysis.

Education: BSc in Media and Communications from University of Ljubljana

My journey into data has been unusual because words always played a bigger role in my life than numbers. I have always been a writer. So when one of my media professors put me forward for a position as a reporter for Thomson Reuters in my home town of Ljubljana, Slovenia, it seemed like the most amazing opportunity. I ended up staying with Thomson Reuters for nearly three years, interviewing government officials and high profile CEOs and managers from all over the world.

In 2009, I decided to move to the UK where I moved deeper into financial reporting, securing a position as a market reporter with a petrochemical and energy industry intelligence agency ICIS, part of FTSE 100 data provider RELX.

As a market reporter, I was both creating data and analysing it on a daily basis. However, I lacked tools to enable me to do that in an efficient way. So as I rose through the editorial ranks, I began changing how we created, collected or interpreted data. I championed the use of robotic process automation tools, data visualisation tools and data analysis tools within editorial. The trend quickly took on and I was given the opportunity to transform ICIS’s data operations on a larger scale.

Today, I’m responsible for developing our data strategy, which governs how we obtain, document, store and access data across all areas of our business.

Hilda has also worked on some of the largest and most complex migrations at Snowflake. She is a pleasure to work with, she is always prepared to go the “extra mile” and is a very valuable member of the Snowflake team.

“Secure Data Sharing will change the data landscape!”

How Snowflake see the data landscape changing in the UK in the next 5 years

Secure Data Sharing will change the data landscape! Snowflake has taken an entirely new approach that will revolutionize how people distribute and consume shared data. Now, any enterprise can securely share and govern any part of its data warehouse, with anyone, all without the delays, cost and friction of existing methods.

“With SKUtrak Data Share, we’re changing the way the industry thinks about retailer data. With a move towards real-time data access, customers can monitor supply chains in real time. Most customers don’t believe it’s possible, but we’re making it a reality. It’s all thanks to the Snowflake data warehouse and their secure data sharing capability.”

— Guy Cuthbert, CEO and CTO at Atheon Analytics

About Snowflake
