At Snowflake, we provide our customers and partners with the performance, ease of use, governance, and security they need to build powerful data applications in the Data Cloud using SQL, Scala, Java, Python and familiar DataFrame constructs. We also provide the ability to protect and manage data through dynamic data masking, fine-grained access policies, and object tagging to control privileges and track sensitive PII data.
All these powerful capabilities, combined with the need to balance governance and agility, mean that our customers and partners are looking to employ the best practices of DevOps and CI/CD to drive automation, robustness and resilience into the creation and lifecycle management of data products and applications in the Data Cloud.
To help support this, Snowflake Ventures today announced our investment in DataOps.live, a feature-rich platform for using the DataOps methodology in the Data Cloud. Dataops.live helps businesses enhance their data operations by making it easier to govern code, automate testing, orchestrate data pipelines and streamline other critical tasks, all with security and governance top of mind.
The investment aligns with our mission to support companies that are providing additional value to Snowflake customers and accelerate the pace of innovation around our platform. If you’re not already familiar with DataOps, I encourage you to explore this important area and check out the rich capabilities that DataOps.live has to offer.
