Thoughts from the top
“ThoughtSpot and Snowflake share a common vision of empowering organizations to unlock the power of their data and mobilize it in service of the enterprise,” Snowflake SVP of Product, Christian Kleinerman said. “This investment showcases our continued partnership with ThoughtSpot and commitment to helping our customers get better and faster insights while leveraging the power of the Snowflake Data Cloud.
“We’re all racing to capture as much data as possible, but the reality is, data is useless unless we can quickly unearth insights and use them to create personalized experiences for customers. Doing so requires a completely new, modern approach . Snowflake is the creator of the Data Cloud , changing the entire industry in the same way Oracle did in the 90s and Salesforce did in the early 2000s,” said Sudheesh Nair, CEO, ThoughtSpot. “Customers who embrace this new world will differentiate themselves on both the quality and agility they deliver to customers. Doing so, however, requires a new kind of analytics that brings the power of the Data Cloud to everyone through the ease of a simple, yet powerful analytics platform. We couldn’t be more excited to join the Data Cloud revolution.”
“Our long-term mission to build a more fact-driven world means helping every person turn data into insights. As that data increasingly moves to the cloud, our growing partnership with Snowflake will help advance that mission to put insights from across the Data Cloud into the hands of every employee with search and AI,” said Ajeet Singh, Co-founder & Executive Chairman, ThoughtSpot. “We know it won’t be easy, but with partners like Snowflake, I know we’re up to the task together.”
