Peak launches Snowflake data warehouse connectorBy Christine Babington Smith on June 2, 2021
'Big Data' entered the Oxford English Dictionary in 2013, at around the same time a Silicon Valley start-up called Snowflake began life with a mission to revolutionize how we store and manage data.
Fast forward seven years and Snowflake became the biggest ever software IPO, raising $3.4bn in 2020. It now has 2725 customers in 65 countries and the second largest market share in the data warehousing category.
Snowflake is the “data warehouse built for the public cloud,” without the baggage of legacy on-premise architecture. Its success is down to its capability to support massive scale and increased productivity. You can now do in minutes, what once took hours on-premise.
Another differentiator from the monolithic tech giants are Snowflake’s elastic properties – the ability to scale up or down your data storage and payment model. Snowflake’s pay-as-you-go model helps democratize data storage, so companies big and small can do great things and become data driven.
This is something that we at Peak love, as we think that all companies should have the opportunity to win in the AI era – not just the big tech companies like Netflix, Google and Facebook. So, we’re really excited to announce a new feature in CODI, Peak’s Connected Decision Intelligence system, where you can now connect directly with Snowflake.
Snowflake and CODI: accelerate value from your data!
CODI now supports Snowflake, which means data scientists can easily import data from their Snowflake account and unleash the power of Decision Intelligence. CODI enables you to integrate siloed data and build AI and machine learning models in rapid time, accelerating the value from your data.
The Snowflake connector is fast, easy to set up, and can be scheduled to import data over regular intervals. It simplifies a vital step in starting to become Decision Intelligence driven, through the commercial application of AI to drive profit and growth.
We’re hugely excited to bring direct Snowflake connectivity into CODI Studio. With the advanced Data Warehousing technologies offered by the Snowflake platform now available for data scientists creating Decision Intelligence solutions on CODI, we can connect more of your data to more of your decisions.
