No-Headquarters/BOZEMAN, Mont. – November 7, 2022 – Snowflake (NYSE: SNOW), the Data Cloud company, today announced at its Snowday 2022 event, the final San Francisco stop on its Data Cloud World Tour, continued growth across the Data Cloud ecosystem, driven in part by Snowflake’s cloud, data provider, services, technology, and Powered by Snowflake partners, alongside its customers. Launched over two years ago, the Snowflake Partner Network continues to serve as the engine that fuels the growth of the Data Cloud ecosystem, unlocking the potential of the Data Cloud with a broad array of solutions, applications, and partners that help mobilize the world’s data.
“Together, Deloitte and Snowflake are supporting customers end-to-end through their data mobilization journeys,” said Frank Farrall, Principal – Data and AI Alliances Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Our alliance with Snowflake allows us to be part of the process of helping to redefine the market for data technology, empowering our joint clients to achieve their digital innovation goals and unlock business value at scale.”
Powered by Snowflake Fuels New Innovations
Powered by Snowflake is becoming synonymous with application development in the Data Cloud, with the program growing by over 6x year-over-year as of July 31, 2022. The program provides partners and customers developing applications on Snowflake with the tools and resources they need to build, market, and operate applications in the Data Cloud. Leading supply chain solution providers like Blue Yonder, cybersecurity organizations like Panther, media and advertising organizations like Piano, marketing technology organizations like Simon Data have built their customer-facing applications on Snowflake, enabling them to seamlessly scale with user demand, reduce operational burden, and unlock new revenue streams.
Snowflake announced the launch of its Native Application Framework (currently in private preview) at this year’s Snowflake Summit, unlocking the ability for application logic to come to the data instead of forcing the customer to relinquish control of or move data. Since then, companies like Capital One are leveraging the Native Application Framework to build a new class of applications on Snowflake that enable customers to install applications from Snowflake Marketplace, and run them directly in their Snowflake instances.
“Earlier this year, Capital One entered the enterprise B2B software market with the launch of Capital One Software and our first product, Slingshot,” said Salim Syed, VP and Head of Engineering, Capital One Software. “We chose to develop a Slingshot app for Snowflake Marketplace to further enhance the Slingshot customer experience and increase the time to value for our joint customers. The ease at which consumers can securely install and run applications directly in their Snowflake instances is of huge value to those building applications in Snowflake.”
Snowflake Partners Building Joint Industry-Vertical Solutions in Alignment with Customers’ Priorities
Snowflake continues to advance as the standard across industries through its vertical and horizontal solutions with the launch of four industry-specific Data Clouds recently built on Snowflake’s single, integrated platform: Financial Services Data Cloud (September 2021), Media Data Cloud (October 2021), Healthcare and Life Sciences Data Cloud (March 2022), and Retail Data Cloud (March 2022). Within each industry-specific Data Cloud, Snowflake announced partner-delivered solutions that are designed to take advantage of Snowflake’s unique interoperability and secure data sharing capabilities, create frictionless collaboration between organizations, leverage best practices, reduce time-to-value, and increase overall impact. Examples of joint solutions include:

“Enterprises are focusing on creating sustained competitive advantage through data and AI, however, they are faced with significant challenges in modernizing to cloud-led data estates. Re-imagining business processes enabled by data and AI and creating data-driven new growth engines is key to win and lead in the digital world.” said Sunil Senan, Senior Vice President and Business Head for Data and Analytics at Infosys. “Infosys is helping its clients through Industry Intelligence cloud offerings under Infosys Cobalt in collaboration with Snowflake empowering enterprises to address these challenges and accelerate their data-driven business strategy.”
