Analysts project that from 2018 to 2023, the public cloud services market in Japan will grow nearly 20.4% annually1, and Snowflake is poised to support the growing need for a modern, cloud-built data platform.

Hidetoshi Tojo, Snowflake Japan’s Managing Director said, “Snowflake is a customer-centric company and our goal is to expand availability to worldwide to enable every organization to be a data leader. Organizations experience siloed data warehouses and data lakes built in different parts of the organization, which causes a struggle for decision-makers to get the insights they need from their data in a timely manner. With Snowflake, organizations have a single-source of truth with their data, accessible in real-time for data-driven decision making.” 

Tojo continued, “Our Japan office opening is the first step towards ingratiating ourselves in this unique market and its needs, and we’re excited to work with organizations in the region. Snowflake will optimize the way that Japanese companies utilize data for business.”
