Using SELECT

Organization Overview

SELECT's Organization Overview Dashboard shows a breakdown of spend in each Snowflake account that is part of your organization. At a glance, you can see:

  1. How much each Snowflake account contributes to your overall spend
  2. How each account is trending in the given time period (% Change)
  3. Key information about each account, including the region, Snowflake Edition, and Snowflake credit pricing
  4. Which accounts you have connected to SELECT

You can also easily understand spend drivers in each account using the "Slice By" menu at the top right of the chart. In this view, we can quickly discover that the majority of the spend in the additional accounts in our Snowflake organization is coming from data transfer costs.
