Snowflake Ecosystem M&A Activity

M&A activity across the Snowflake partner ecosystem remains strong. Snowflake, a Data Cloud company, is in rapid growth mode — and that means major opportunities for Snowflake partners that assist customers with big data, analytics and cloud services projects. Snowflake’s software enables data storage, processing, and analytic solutions that are “faster, easier to use, and far more flexible than traditional offerings,” the company asserts.

Among the latest factoids to note: Snowflake launched a successful IPO in September 2020.  Fast forward to December 2021, and Snowflake said revenue was $334.4 million in Q3 of fiscal 2022, up 110% from Q3 of 2021.
