SINGAPORE – June 11, 2020 – Snowflake, the cloud data platform, today announced the launch of Rise of the Data Cloud, a new podcast for data and business leaders that features insights from the cutting edge of data. The weekly podcast series kicks off today, with the first episode available online and on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Simplecast.
Rise of the Data Cloud is dedicated to unveiling business practices and the technology that enable organizations to break down data barriers and federate data to drive business growth, fuel innovation and disrupt industries. Each 35-minute episode highlights the journey and best practices of a data leader discussing how they leverage the power of the cloud to get the most value out of their data. The first podcast episode is available now and features Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman discussing the technology powering the Data Cloud, which is the Snowflake Cloud Data Platform.
The Data Cloud is an ecosystem where Snowflake customers, partners, data providers, and data service providers derive value from rapidly-growing data sets in a secure, governed, compliant, and seamless way. The technology that unites this ecosystem and enables the Data Cloud is Snowflake Cloud Data Platform. The Data Cloud will continue to grow as organizations move their siloed data from the infrastructure and application clouds, and from on-premise solutions.
