Global Head of Retail

SnowflakeSan Mateo, CA7 days ago

There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.


Companies are ready for the next evolution in leveraging data to boost business performance. Analytics/ AI/ Machine Learning is not a new phenomenon, but so far few companies have truly internalized and fully taken advantage of what it means to be data-driven.
