Go-To Platform for Cloud Migration
Snowflake has become the go-to platform for businesses looking to migrate their data to the cloud. It’s proven to deliver a high-performing data platform for a lower cost compared to its competitors – a key factor for organisations who are considering moving an on-prem data platform to the cloud. The platform offers a range of features such as zero copy cloning, time travel and external and internal data sharing, which open new opportunities for businesses such as B2B data sharing. With Snowpark, a developer framework, Snowflake has become a unified platform for data engineers and data scientists.
Platform-Agnostic Cloud Technology
One of the key reasons Snowflake is popular is due to its platform-agnostic cloud technology. This means that Snowflake is available on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. This flexibility means businesses can choose the best cloud platform for their needs without being locked into a specific vendor.
Snowflake Ecosystem and Partnerships
Snowflake integrates well with industry-leading tools and technologies, enabling our clients to access Snowflake through an extensive network of connectors, drivers, programming languages, and utilities. At ClearPoint, we have seen our existing clients adopting tools such as DBT, Fivetran and Power BI with Snowflake and modernizing their data platform to provide value to the business like never before. Snowflake’s partnerships with other technology vendors are increasingly providing more value to our existing customers. With the partnership between Snowflake and ClearPoint partner, Salesforce, customers can now analyse Salesforce data using Snowflake without copying data outside Salesforce – opening vast new possibilities for businesses.
