With so much attention around cloud data platforms these days, we’ve been upping our game in that area throughout the past few years.
Today, we are proud to announce our new partnership with Snowflake, an award-winning cloud data platform company. As of February 2020, C2 is Snowflake’s only Vermont partner. Snowflake has emerged as the fastest-growing business in the cloud category, beating out Opsgenie and Google Cloud Platform—and it’s not even close.
The popularity of Snowflake’s cloud data services is indicative of underlying business intelligence trends, particularly with increased digitization of enterprise processes. Roberto Torres, a reporter for CIO Dive, elaborates: “Snowflake’s significant year-over-year growth rate of 273% responds to increased reliance on data analytics for decision making at the enterprise level.”
As the main driver of Snowflake’s impressive growth rate, their cloud data services are powerful and easy to use in all kinds of industries. Through our new partnership, we are now in a better position to fulfill the data warehousing needs of our clients.
What Does This Mean For Our Clients?
Our cloud-centric clients have been growing in numbers in the past few years. Not only do they want more business insights from their own data, but they also want to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) over their business intelligence systems.
Our new partnership empowers us to provide our clients with opportunities to take advantage of cloud-centric economics while boosting productivity and efficiency within their current workforce.
More specifically, C2’s go-to-market strategy for our clients will be partnering with Snowflake to integrate data from multiple sources and formats into a unified data platform, where essential business insights can be gleaned quickly and easily at a reduced cost. This, coupled with the integration opportunities with some of our other cloud and SaaS-centric tools, provides a comprehensive integration platform. Snowflake’s ETL services provide more flexibility compared to many similar services. For instance, Snowflake’s ETL tool seamlessly integrates with data warehouses and other components of your data platform, while also supporting transformation both during and after loading.
Snowflake is not just another cloud data service—it is a new data platform built from the ground up using modern and patented architecture. Snowflake helps its users overcome what many similar solutions have struggled to deliver: the ability of any data scientist to work with any data without scaling or performance limitations.
Consequently, their data platform is simple enough for one person to manage—yet powerful enough to fulfill the data management needs of the largest enterprises across multiple industries. Such industries range from healthcare to manufacturing to the federal government—and practically everything in between.
There is a reason Snowflake is gaining so much popularity so fast: InfoWorld recently recognized as one of their Technology of the Year award winners for 2020. According to Forbes, Snowflake achieved a new valuation of $12.4 billion with the latest round of funding, up from less than $4 billion just a year ago.
At this rate, Snowflake is set to become one of the biggest and most powerful players in the cloud data platform landscape. With C2 as Snowflake’s only partner in Vermont, we are ready to deliver the most robust and powerful cloud data services to our clients and partners in the Northeast U.S. as well as nationwide.
