Mature, on-premise data warehouse technologies can handle massive volumes of data while being performant, but cloud technologies are not bound by the same hardware and infrastructure limitations. Among the cloud options, BigQuery competes with the best. As a managed service, it has the added capability of nearly limitless and seamless scalability with no administrative overhead.

With the cost of cloud-based services making up an increasingly large part of companies’ budgets — and with businesses fueled by access to vital data resources — it makes sense that cost and performance optimization is top-of-mind for most data teams. Transformation and aggregation of data can reduce the total amount of data queried. This improves performance and, for those on pay-for-use cloud billing plans, also keeps expenses low.
