- Local operations will support Brazilian and multinational customers accelerating their migration to the Data Cloud
- Leading companies in Brazil including Azul Linhas Aéreas and Petz and thousands of global companies are leveraging the Snowflake Data Cloud to break down data silos and accelerate collaboration
São Paulo, BR – December 7, 2022 – Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, today announced that it has officially launched market operations in Brazil as the company focuses on expanding its customer base in Brazil and Latin America.
Enterprises throughout Brazil and Latin America are increasingly turning to Snowflake’s platform that powers the Data Cloud — the global network where Snowflake customers, partners, and data providers can break down data silos and derive value from rapidly growing data sets in secure, governed, and compliant ways.
The Data Cloud is enabled by the Snowflake platform, which offers: the near-unlimited scale and efficiency of a multi-cluster shared data architecture; the seamless interoperability of working with data across multiple public clouds as if they were one; baked-in security features that can’t be turned off; and modern data sharing, which allows virtually any number of organizations to share and receive live data with each other near-instantly and without having to move or copy data.
Under the leadership of José Nilo Cruz Martins, Country Manager for Brazil, Snowflake has opened up operations in Brazil and will hire across the country to focus on sales and customer support as the company bolsters its LATAM operations to be closer to customers’ needs.
“Brazil represents a major hub and investment for Snowflake as we continue to expand our presence in the LATAM region and work with local Brazilian companies that are investing in cloud technologies and looking to harness the full value of their data,” said Martins. “Snowflake’s Data Cloud will help Brazilian companies advance their existing missions to become more data-driven by breaking down data silos and enabling collaboration across internal teams and external partners.”
Leading companies in Brazil, including Azul Linhas Aéreas and Petz have already turned to Snowflake as the platform for their data needs.
Azul Linhas Aéreas, the largest airline network in Brazil in terms of cities served, is leveraging the Data Cloud to guide decision making and strategic planning.
“Snowflake has been at the forefront of the cloud technology and has helped Azul dramatically reduce its total cost of ownership for our data,” said Fabiel Vidal dos Santos, Coordinator of Data Engineering Department and DataViz at Azul Linhas Aéreas. “With Snowflake’s Data Cloud, we were able to fast-forward our data science, advanced analytics and AI work, which has allowed us to uncover insights hidden in Azul’s data.”
With operations in Brazil, Snowflake now has offices and operations across 24 countries.
Snowflake enables every organization to mobilize their data with Snowflake’s Data Cloud. Customers use the Data Cloud to unite siloed data, discover and securely share data, and execute diverse analytic workloads. Wherever data or users live, Snowflake delivers a single data experience that spans multiple clouds and geographies. Thousands of customers across many industries, including 543 of the 2022 Forbes Global 2000 (G2K) as of October 31, 2022, use Snowflake Data Cloud to power their businesses.
