What is the Data Cloud?
Over 400 million SaaS data sets remained siloed globally, isolated in cloud data storage and on-premise data centers. The Data Cloud eliminates these silos, allowing you to seamlessly unify, analyze, share, and even monetize your data.
The Data Cloud allows organizations to unify and connect to a single copy of all of their data with ease. The result is an ecosystem of thousands of businesses and organizations connecting to not only their own data, but also connecting to each other by effortlessly sharing and consuming shared data and data services. The Data Cloud makes the vast and growing quantities of valuable data connected, accessible, and available.
Enabling the Data Cloud with Snowflake
