Snowflake and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have made a multi-year expansion to their partnership, with Snowflake growing its AWS spend and both companies jointly contributing millions of dollars to support go-to-market efforts, explore new frontiers, and drive customer-focused innovation.

On the agenda are more industry-specific solutions built jointly and already including financial services, media and advertising, healthcare and life sciences, retail, and telecom Data Clouds; additional investment in deep product integrations across machine learning, artificial intelligence, data governance and streaming data to create the best experience for joint customers; increasing sales collaborations; and expanding marketing strategies.

Commenting on the companies’ work together over the past three years, Snowflake chairman and CEO Frank Slootman, says the result is ‘one of the most successful technology co-sell partnerships in cloud computing’. He adds: “We are continuing to strengthen our partnership with a single-minded focus on what’s best for our customers.”

Adam Selipsky, CEO at AWS, says: “Working alongside Snowflake, we are unlocking new value for thousands of customers around the world and helping them maximise their data investments.”

One of those customers is Goldman Sachs. Neema Raphael, CDO and head of data engineering, says: “Our data strategy is directly tied to our open source Legend platform and the Goldman Sachs Financial Cloud for Data. By leveraging the offerings of AWS for our cloud infrastructure and Snowflake for our integrated data platform and built-in governance, we have built a reliable and secure technology stack that supports Legend which, in turn, helps our clients, business partners, and engineers generate transformational business insights, quickly and easily.”
