Snowflake and Crux Informatics Partner to Deliver Accelerated Data Ingestion on the Snowflake Data Marketplace

Data providers can more easily deliver validated data to Snowflake customers and into Snowflake Data Marketplace 

SAN MATEO, Calif – July 14, 2020 – Snowflake, the cloud data platform, today announced that Crux Informatics (“Crux”), a leading data delivery and operations company, has joined the Snowflake Data Marketplace as a data delivery partner. Customers using Snowflake’s Data Marketplace are now able to easily access validated data from Crux, and data suppliers can leverage Crux’s infrastructure and delivery capabilities to distribute into the Snowflake Data Marketplace and into pre-authorized Snowflake customer accounts. Crux will initially share a complimentary content package including dozens of public data sets as part of the partnership. 

Crux manages data operations among a vast network of over 100 traditional, alternative and public data suppliers, facilitating faster and easier data delivery to financial services organizations and investment teams. Crux has built a sophisticated integration to Snowflake, with robust automation and strict entitlement controls, that allows any data vendor who is integrated with Crux to safely feed their data into Snowflake’s Cloud Data Platform. 

Snowflake Data Marketplace, built on top of Snowflake’s Secure Data Sharing technology, provides an easy-to-use platform for organizations to find, share, and list content. Data consumers on the marketplace can easily combine Crux’s data sets with their own data, as well as data from suppliers and partners, to generate even more valuable insights for business decisions. Snowflake’s Cloud Data Platform leverages the power of the cloud and separates compute from storage so that data is always up-to-date. Easy, secure access to near real-time data is essential for Crux customers and Snowflake Data Marketplace users to get the most business value from their data for insights-driven decision making. 

“It’s our mission to help companies reliably and efficiently get data delivered into the destinations they need and our partnership with Snowflake is a natural extension of our offering,” Crux CEO, Philip Brittan said. “Vendors who are integrated with Crux can automatically deliver their data into client Snowflake accounts and Snowflake Data Marketplace with full control and minimal extra work. We look forward to working with Snowflake to provide a frictionless experience for secure data sharing on Snowflake Data Marketplace and delivering more data for their data consumers.”

“We’re committed to empowering businesses with secure, fast, analytics-ready data for insights that deliver real business value,” said Matt Glickman, VP Data Marketplace, Customer Product Strategy at Snowflake. “Organizations across industries can now leverage Crux to help them bring the data they require onto the Snowflake Data Marketplace in conjunction with more than 80 other providers, to get deeper insights that deliver real business value.”
