What Is Snowflake Data Cloud?

Snowflake Data Cloud is a global network where thousands of companies mobilize data at an almost unlimited scale. Snowflake Data Cloud consists of two parts: platform and data.
Snowflake’s platform is the engine that powers the Snowflake Data Cloud. The data provided in the Snowflake Data Cloud comes from Snowflake customers and other data providers. They store data in Snowflake, as well as to share data via the Snowflake platform. Snowflake Data Cloud sits between the providers of cloud infrastructures and the providers of data applications. Snowflake Data Cloud is the place where organizations can connect, collaborate, and then achieve their goals with the help of data.

Why Snowflake?

Breaking down heterogeneous data silos  to use existing information in a modern approach to data management and analysis is currently one of the major challenges that companies face. The aim is to  simplify the work of IT staff and reduce the time to value creation  for companies. Many organizations are migrating their data and analytics to the cloud, but still struggle to combine multiple data types and different analytics initiatives into a coherent  strategy. A true platform takes advantage of modern cloud data warehouses and data lakes to help organizations shift their focus from managing infrastructure to managing data. With Snowflake’s platform, different types of data from different sources can be easily collected, stored, integrated and exchanged. This gives teams free resources, more flexibility and the insights they need to make their decisions.

By capturing structured and semi-structured data from any data source, the patented multi-cluster-based shared data architecture easily and securely enables a variety of workloads – such as cloud data warehouses, data lakes, data pipelines and data exchanges – and many different applications for business intelligence, data science and data analytics. With Snowflake as the foundation, users can shift their focus from managing a sprawling, inconsistent infrastructure to gaining insights from the entire data platform. The possibility to make all data and insights available to every relevant employee, i.e. a democratization of knowledge, quickly leads to a significant return on investment.

A platform with the right architecture is the key to a successful data management and analytics strategy for the entire company and beyond. By standardizing on Snowflake’s platform, users can bring together disparate data sources to gain valuable and timely insights. Yet, without additional costs, maintenance or complexity associated with older solutions. Snowflake’s performance, flexibility and scalability optimally support even highly volatile analysis requirements.  Snowflake enables companies to make data-driven decisions, improve collaboration and establish a progressive cloud strategy.
