Part 5 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the big data system and cloud platform space.

Snowflake

Top Executive: CEO Frank Slootman

Snowflake initially focused on providing cloud-based data warehousing services following its 2012 launch. But in recent years, especially since its blockbuster IPO in September 2020, the company has broadened its sights to become “the data cloud” with a broad—and growing—lineup of offerings spanning data warehouse, data lake, data engineering, data science, data sharing and data application services.

More recently Snowflake has been expanding its service offerings for specific vertical industries, debuting in March the new Retail Data Cloud and Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud solutions.

Also in March, Snowflake struck a deal to acquire Streamlit, the developer of a framework for accelerating the creation of data applications

For the company’s fiscal 2022 ended Jan. 31, fast-growing Snowflake reported revenue of $1.22 billion, more than double the $592 million in revenue reported for fiscal 2021.
